Day 3

Today (Wednesday), we went on a six mile, return walk to Deep Hayes Country Park. It was a great day. The sun shone; the sky was blue and we were eager and ready. We went in three groups and had to read maps and all of us had a chance to lead the way. This had varying degrees of success but proved to be fun! Once we arrived at Deep Hayes, we had to set up our trangia and cook the food we ordered the previous night. Most of us ate baked beans, soup, hot dogs or spaghetti.

After lunch we set off back to Stanley Head. The woods were beautiful: the floor was covered with delicate bluebells and the air was filled with the sound of birds singing. It was a little unfortunate therefore that one group took a wrong turn and ended up at the bottom of someone’s garden!!!!

We all arrived back safe, hot and tired.

We are looking forward to what tomorrow has to bring…

Day 2

Another brilliant day of activities at Stanley Head today. The children did different activities: including crate stacking, climbing, standing on top of and jumping off the 8 meter high all aboard pole. The day was finished by an archery session, which included practice, games and competitions.  Children are looking forward to a 6 mile Deep Hayes walk tomorrow.

All children are having a great time, the food is delicious and all campers managed to get some sleep (hmm some, sleep last night.)

We hope you are enjoying looking at the photographs, more to follow tomorrow.

Day 1

What a brilliant day so far…..

Children have been canoeing on the Stanley Head lake. With 4 to a canoe, the children learned how to navigate around the water before playing a game name 5 stars. This involved the children dunking their elbows, shoulders, knees, feet, head in the water without falling out of the boat. Year 5 were not always successful in this part of the challenge. We had some very wet (and happy) children.

The other half of the children went to the Roaches and did some bouldering. Great fun was had!

After tea, children took part in the initial trail – helping develop our map reading skills.

All children are looking forward to tomorrow and we will keep you informed about their adventures.
