Georgeham 2017 Diary
MONDAY 9 OCTOBER . . . We've arrived!
At bedtime, the children settled quickly and all slept through. We are just about to enjoy breakfast and prepare ourselves for another busy day.
TUESDAY 10 OCTOBER . . .Wonderful water adventures & facing fears at the cliff side
Our morning was spent in or on water surfing and kayaking. Not deterred by the huge waves, there was lots of success while surfing, with many managing to stand on their board whilst moving (including Miss Jones! See the action shot of her falling!). Those kayaking demonstrated team work and in lots of cases bravery on the water too and the smiles on their faces said everyone loved this activity.
Following the children making their own packed lunches, we ventured out again. This time, climbing, abseiling, rock pooling and archery were the activities, with all having a chance to explore the ones they didn't do yesterday.
Some truly inspiring resilience and courage was demonstrated by those out climbing and abseiling. We are SO proud of those children who faced their fears and descended down the rock face and scrambled back up - this was by no means an easy thing to do! Discoveries were made in the rock pools with sightings of starfish, crabs and a sea anemone!
After devouring a dinner of sausages & mash, the children are now preparing for their long walk tomorrow and then will be enjoying an evening of outdoor play in the dark. We will then polish off the day with a hot chocolate and a story...not before showers of course!
