Burwardsley day 2

Day 2

It was a remarkably late morning and we even had to wake 1 boy up, and another could barely stay awake. We tucked into a delicious cooked breakfast- we certainly haven't been going hungry! After packing up our things we met Paul who was going to take us den building. It was a slightly longer walk than anticipated but a real jungle trek with ferns that were taller than the staff and very wet and wild paths up to the top of Willow Hill. Once at the top we split into 2 teams and with instruction set about our den building competition. Class 1 are definitely the ones to be with if you ever need shelter in the woods. Den building was so much mucky fun and the class showed real teamwork transporting sticks and creating mossy, leafy bricks. The morning seemed to whiz by and it was soon time to head back to the Centre. This time the journey back was in Indiana Jones style, we climbed down steps to the caves for a bit of rock climbing. The intrepid explorers were at first afraid but soon conquered their fears and did themselves proud as they crawled through the sandstone caves. We were so lucky because upon our return we just started our picnic lunch outside when the heavens opened and we had to dash inside to finish our lunch. After a delicious picnic and super scrummy birthday cake it was unfortunately time for our adventure to end. The coach had arrived and we had to come home, if not a bit tired and certainly a bit grubby! We have had a great time and I know the staff will certainly sleep well tonight (I'm pretty sure class 1 will too!)

I hope you are all super proud of your children because I am as their teacher

a great 2016 residential for class 1. 

Next Friday there will be a slideshow of all the residential pictures at 2.30pm in class 1 (what you see on here is only a small sample to give you a taste of our adventures
