PGL RESIDENTIAL 2019
Thursday 27th June
What a fabulous day the children had yesterday. We started off the day with the children somewhat struggling to get out of bed in the morning- especially as we have 7:10am breakfast! Anyway, we struggled to breakfast all bleary eyed and then started the day. Room inspection saw the boys triumph again for the second day- there are no excuses for when they get home Mum and Dad!
Activities then started and they began with the Matrix (or Quad bike cleaning) and the children loved it. Moving onto climbing, then giant swing after lunch. Giant swing was interesting as the swing misfired twice leaving two of the children stranded and having to be brought down manually- all had one go, but will have a second tomorrow lunch time. We have some wonderful pictures of the children’s faces as they ‘dropped’!
The last activity of the day before dinner was sensory trail- they got very muddy and wet as they followed the rope through a course blindfolded- apologies parents for the muddy clothing.
In the evening they played team games to win points for materials to build a safe ‘box’ to launch a water balloon without breaking- one team actually succeeded- they were very pleased with themselves.
The children are having a brilliant time and it was lovely to see them really bonding, with the girls making up the boys into an impromptu fashion show. Some of the pictures are very interesting!
They all went to bed tired but happy and I have a feeling getting them up tomorrow morning will be tougher than today. More updates later on!
