Friday 3rd March

Hi everyone,

A quick update about yesterday's activities. The morning saw us all having a go at 'side by side' - buggy driving with a passenger. Children enjoyed having to put it in gear to go and having a reverse parking challenge at the end. Theo was in his element and Jen really pushed herself to try something new!

Then it was on to abseiling - some children who were afraid of heights just went to the top of the tower, others were happy to walk their way down. Special mention goes to Charli and Tate as they were very frightened yet pushed themselves to do it!

Other activities involved laser quest (lots of fun and giggling involved), aeroball (bouncing on a trampoline whilst trying to score baskets), orienteering and team challenge (physical problem solving). We really had a good day!

After starting our packing, we had movie night and watched 'home'. Miraculously no one fell asleep during the film.

We celebrated world book day with a bit more of our novel, shared highlights of our day and then it didn't take long for us all to get to sleep!

This morning we've fuelled up and we are off to our last activities. Dorms are clear and our luggage pile seems to have grown!

The children have done you all proud whilst we've been away. I am very proud of their behaviour around the centre and also the way they have supported each other. It has been a really great trip.

We are all looking forward to seeing you later,

The Kingswood team 

Thursday 2nd March

Good morning from sunny (but windy) Kingswood!

Yesterday was great. Poor Ruby had a rude 'happy birthday' awakening and leap of faith day had arrived!!!

All of the children were fantastic - children climbed up the tower as far as they felt comfortable. For some, this was half way, for others it was up to the platform (Brandon, Ruben, Keira and Charli were chuffed to bits with getting so far and being scared of heights); for the acrobatic dare-devils, it meant clambering up onto the platform, standing up, inching towards the edge and then leaping off whilst trying to grab the bar. Olivia was thrilled with herself for being such a risk-taker as were Oscar H, Eve, Freya, Oscar R, Billie, Jen, De Sharai, Fin, Lily, Jenna.

After all the excitement, it was time for some of us to do bushcraft. Miles and Eve loved it and got very stuck in to keeping their fires burning! There were lots of problem solving challenges too - Jenna was completely absorbed! 

Both groups took part in nightline - very amusing for the teachers watching. Children had blindfolds and had to lead each other over obstacles. Jen and Kyle displayed excellent team work, as did Charlie C and De Sharai. Seeing Charlie dangling over some tyres with his legs in the air and a massive smile on his face was classic! 

We had birthday cake at tea and all sang happy birthday before racing back to the dorms to get ready for the D I S C O!! Seb, Tate, Theo and Brandon burnt up the dance floor with some help from Tilly, Billie and Jen. 

After all the excitement, it didn't take long after our story and lights out for them all to be sending up little snores!! 

We're currently tearing around in buggies. Fun fun fun!

Sorry about lack of tweets - the wifi is not good!!

See you all tomorrow,

The Kingswood crew 

(P.S. Sausages might not be well received for dinner tomorrow - children have eaten rather a lot of them!!)
