Day 2 - Little Canada
7.00am and the staff rubbed their blurred eyes and began the morning rounds (many of the children we quickly discovered waking suitably earlier than this themselves!). At 7.40, breakfast was calling, again proving to be a successful mealtime with options for all.
Then it was time for children and staff to split off into their 3 groups ready to start their first activity by 9.10am. But before they could leave, the first dreaded Chalet Inspection required completion. Staff were pleased to see some good efforts had been made with this challenge, although always room for improvement!
The day was then filled with a selection from the following: Archery, Climbing, Abseiling, Orienteering, Zipwire and a newer activity for our school, Buggy Building. The children really enjoyed all of these and it was so pleasing to see how supportive they were to one-another and how much further they pushed themselves when their friends helped.
As we sit here updating the site, the children are enjoying Ambush, a big game of hide and seek across the centre. The children have shown their commitment by adding mud to faces as camouflage…hopefully, ‘it’s coming home’ tonight too!
All is well and your children are doing fantastically.
More to come tomorrow. Sensory Trail incoming!!!
Day 3 - Little Canada
Day 3 at Little Canada began with some slightly slower risers first thing this morning. We were however again so impressed by the way they had all gone to bed without fuss the night before, despite the nearby celebrations from the football!
Blessed once again with good weather, we set off for a day many of the children were anticipating for the Sensory Trial. Before this though, sessions of Orienteering, Zipwire, Buggy Building and Climbing continued.
At lunchtime, the second and final shop visit gave the group a chance to stock up on treats for themselves, but also purchase special gifts for siblings and parents. Then it was time for the big one…Sensory Trial! As you will see from our photos, the children were all excellent and really got into the spirit of the activity.
Today concludes with Campfire, as the children prepare to start packing and sorting chalets for the mass tidy-up of the next morning. A slightly earlier start (6.45am) awaits us, with many of the children particularly looking forward to trying out the Giant Swing before we depart.
We hope you have enjoyed our updates this week and looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow evening.
