Moat Mount - Day 2
After a not so early night (!) the children were awake bright and early although a few were not particularly bushy tailed! We had a hearty breakfast (lots of seconds) and started with a dormitory inspection. Parents, please take note, they were immaculate. No clothes on the floor, suitcases stacked neatly and bedded folded ready for tonight. Well done Year 4!
Our first activity was archery and the children excelled. We had quite a few bullseyes, with many children showing real promise. Robin Hood woud have been keen to have Year 4 join his merry band.
The chidren made their own sandwiches and enjoyed their lunch before setting off on the orienteering course. We split into three groups and there were some real stars, who showed off their map reading skills whilst exploring the woods and pond area. The activity ended with some very weary legs and that was just the adults!
To round off the day, before dinner, Mr Smith ran a mini first aid course where the teatment of burns, cuts, bumps and sprains were covered. Also, when and how to contact 999. All necessary life skills. The children particularly enjoyed bandaging each other and fortunately we didn't end up with any mummies!
After dinner, this evening, we were lucky enough to have an ice cream van visit and got to choose whatever ice cream we wanted. Yummy! This led nicely into our long awaited talent show. We were all treated to a range of acts including magic, card tricks, singing, comedy and dancing. What a great way to end the night!
We are now all hoping for a slightly early bedtime and looking forward to our final activities tomorrow.
