As I write this, the rain has ceased and the children are busy playing Aeroball. It's a game which mixes trampolining and basketball. Later on, its laser and Nightline which will be great fun.

Today was full on; breakfast started at 7.30am so many were blurry eyed. Full English Breakfast was chosen by most and finished within minutes.

After a few games outside, it was time for archery and the crate stack. The crate stack involved the children working in pairs to balance on milk crates. Most got really high with the record standing at 10 crates by Savannah and Charlotte R.

Later, shelter building and initiative games meant that the afternoon whizzed by.

All children are fine and having fun although some are looking a little tired! I think they'll sleep well tonight - wish us luck!

It appears that the break in the rain lasted as long as the phone call that we had from Norfolk at lunchtime!

The rain is back but the children are not letting it dampen their enthusiasm for the activities and they have had another good day.

After dinner they have aeroball (a team game that is sort of basketball on a trampoline but with each player in a section with netting!?!), Nightline and Laserquest with groups swapping round from what they did yesterday.

Due to the issues with communications I am not expecting to hear from them again this evening, although if a sneaky email falls into my inbox I will post it!

We've arrived! After a coach journey that seemed to go on forever, we arrived at our destination in bright sunshine! Hooray... the weather forecasters had got their predictions wrong! But not for long....the rain came. It hasn't stopped any of the fun though - quite the opposite - the children have loved getting stuck into the mud and wet activities. Be warned...there will be plenty of washing needed when we return!

The rooms are comfortable and the children settled in quickly. There was some confusion about how to make their beds but after some head scratching and demonstration, all were successful in sorting their beds - phew!

Activities today have included STEM - a problem solving activity building contraptions, Laser and Nightline. Laser and Nighline have proved to be very popular. Running in the woods and rain firing lasers and poor Mrs Strellis and Mrs Sandford was a definite winner - I wonder why? Nightline was hilarious - it involved the children being blindfolded and being led through an obstacle course - awesome!

The children settled down to sleep pretty well - it was obvious they had a busy and tiring day. We're all looking forward to tomorrow as it is high rope activities.

Due to the weather there appears to be a real issue with getting a signal to send messages, make phone calls etc. Mr Vale-Smith has tried standing on a chair, holding his phone out of the window etc to try and get a signal, but with no luck. For this reason there will be no photos appearing on the posts until the children return on Wednesday.

Earlier I spoke to Mr Vale-Smith. Children are wet but happy. All is well with their bedrooms. They had come in from the last activity and dried off. There was lots of excitement and they were about to go down to dinner.

They are having issues getting a mobile signal which may mean that we do not see a post on here this evening, but Mr Vale-Smith is going to try straight after the activity after tea.

I cannot wait to see how the Y6 got on putting the duvet covers onto the duvets!
