Day 1 Yr 6 residential - Isle of Wight

Following an excellent night's sleep for all children we have awoken to a bright and sunny morning at Bembridge! Yesterdays journey went well. We all enjoyed the views of the Solent from the ferry and the beautiful green countryside.


On arrival, we met our instructor and settled into our lodges.  Straight after that, we hit the ground running and went into our afternoon activities.  Dinner was a hearty meal of chicken, wedges, veg and ice cream.  We then competed in the Mini Olympics with our two instructors working brilliantly in teams to complete weird and wacky races!


Children then played rounders, volleyball and football before settling down to some quiet circle time before tucking ourselves up into bed. 


ALL children are happy and enjoying themselves.  Today, we will be busy with nightline, 3G swing areoball, problem solving, bush craft and an obstacle course.


After our evening meal we will be walking to the Culver monument to enjoy the views.
