Year Three Residential 2013

It's the end of the trip, and Miss D has finally found a stable internet connection!

We have had a phenomenal few days away, and the children have been an absolute delight to spend time with.  In each place that we have visited, people have stopped us and complimented the behaviour and attitude of the children, and they have impressed the other guests at the hostel with the way that they have managed themselves throughout their first residential.

As always with these trips, there are many people who need thanking for their hard work and time, especially Angela Davies, Val Brown, Ian Sampson and Paul Moulton.  The trip certainly would not have been such a success without their endless effort and enthusiasm!  Finally, the biggest thanks must go to the children for throwing themselves into another new experience with such an amazing level of maturity and wonderful behaviour.  They have certainly been outstanding ambassadors for the school, and I am incredibly proud of each and every one of them!!

Well done everyone - let's start planning next year's now!!

The National Maritime Musuem Cornwall:

Investigation sessions - gathering ideas for our challenge...

The Boat-Building Scrapheap Challenge

The Heats...

The Heat Winners...

The Grand Final!

The Champions of Champions!!

Flambards: The Victorian Village & Britain in the Blitz

As the weather had stopped the ferries running to St. Michael's Mount, we fell back on a contingency plan (with many thanks to Rose for making many many phone calls on Thursday morning) & visited the exhibitions at Flambards.   The children loved walking around the village and wartime town, and were incredibly interested in what they saw!

Laser Quest: Bombadingas Skullduggery

The Champions...

The Runners Up ...

The Bronze Medallists ...

Our Wooden Spoon Winners ...

Friday 10th May - Cornwall Crealy

A hearty breakfast before we begin!!!

Lots of fun on rides - and lots of wet children!

One last group shot before we hit the road for the final time:

The Stars of the Show!!

We're on our way again -
I wonder why we're so happy !!!
See you back at school this evening.
These are the Laserquest Teams that reached the final.
Laserquest was fantastic - especially the bit where we got to shoot the teachers !

We're heading back to the Youth Hostel now after a really fun day.
Hopefully we'll get another good nights sleep so we are ready for Crealy tomorrow !

Internet allowing there will be more photos later on this evening.
Click here to find out who won the boat building / racing challenge.

This afternoon we had a great time looking around the Victorian Town at Flambards.
Unfortunately the rides weren't open but they will be at Crealy tomorrow !!!

Everyone had a great nights sleep and got ready for an exciting day out with a nice big breakfast.

These photos are from The Maritime Museum in Falmouth. The trip ended with a boat building competition and race - you'll have to check later to find out who won.

The windy weather has stopped the planned trip to St Michael's Mount but don't panic, there's a contingency plan to make sure everyone still has a great time !!!!!
There'll be lots more photos later on .....

It's 8pm on the first night away and the children are happily bowling away!  Unfortunately the wifi access at the Youth Hostel is not working, so we have hijacked the office's wifi at the ten pin bowling centre instead! Everyone has had a fabulous day and enjoyed the activities so far.  We have settled into the hostel, and had the customary hour and a half making beds!!!  We will upload some photos whenever we can, and will do our best to update again tomorrow - even if Miss D ends up scouring Cornwall for wifi!  Please leave comments when you can as the children love to hear them!

Nick was our guide at the Eden Project.  He helped us to complete our rainforest rangers training!  Chloe has been our appointed group leader today, and she was awarded a certificate to show that we had all completed our training!

After lunch we explored the rest of the Eden Projecct - Mr Moulton's group practiced their spelling, and Miss Daniel's group were very brave and sampled olives!  Their faces were hilarious after they had tried them!

It was sadly time to leave the Eden Project and head to the hostel.

After we arrived at the hostel everyone enjoyed making their beds.....

(well maybe not everyone!! I think Mrs Brown made 27!!!)

Everyone has enjoyed a hearty tea - especially chocolate cake and sauce for pudding!

Ten Pin Bowling has certainly been an exciting evening - and pretty entertaining for the adults!

Mrs Brown's Girls (It just doesn't have the same ring to it!!)

The bowling teams ........

We will let you know tomorrow who was victorious!!  We will do our best to update again as soon as we can.  Please send us lots of comments.

Hope everyone is well at home!

Lots of love and hugs etc!!

Year Three are off to Penzance on their residential trip tomorrow morning.  As you can see, everyone was excited in school today when we were chatting about our trip!  Please check in and leave lots of comments for us - we will endeavour to update the website as often as we can - wifi allowing!!
