Avon Tyrrell Day 4

Today has been full of fun, excitement and challenge! It started at 6:50 am when the children were woken up in order to embark on their first adventure of the day; an extremely misty walk into the New Forest as the photos show!

During our mammoth adventure across crocodile infested rivers and meandering, narrow paths, we came across New Forest ponies and a variety of animal paw prints.  After a well earned breakfast the morning activities began, where the children participated in trekking and sketching. In addition, they also enjoyed problem solving and shelter building along with the staff! To our surprise, the children still had enough energy at the end of the day for a game of' What's the time Miss Walters?' as shown in the photos!

The children are now getting ready for their dinner and are very excited about tonight's campfire!

Throughout the day I have over heard comments from the children such as:

'This trip has really inspired me to go outside and do more!' (Dominic Tarrier)

'It was really fun and enjoyable!' (Lucy Marchant)

'I found the night walk really interesting, especially coming face to face with frogs!'  (Jude McNaughton)

'Its made me realise that I am confident enough to talk to others from different classes!' (Jessica Cook)

It has been a fantastic few days with 5KT and 5S and the staff are extremely proud of everything they have achieved. Well done!
