Tuesday 20th June
Wow! What an amazing day at Little Canada! The children were all asleep by around midnight last night and fast asleep at 7am this morning when we had to get up for breakfast.
We started our day with a delicious breakfast. We could choose from: cereal, porridge, toast, beans, bacon, hash browns and tomatoes. After breakfast, we started our activities. Today, we have all had a go at a climbing activity called 'All Aboard'. The children had to climb to the top of a post and balance on a small platform at the top, then two other children had to do the same thing before all three children lent back from the platform. All of the children gave the activity a go and the adults were all really proud of their perseverance. We have also all had a go on the 'Giant Swing' today. Year 6 really enjoyed pulling each other up to the top and then releasing the rope. All of the children enjoyed the activity and giggled their way back to the ground!! We have also all completed the sensory trail - the children were blindfolded and led round a muddy and wet rope course - the teachers enjoyed watching them get very muddy but the children got their own back at the end! Some of the groups have had a go at archery today and some of the children have had a go at 'aeroball' (trampolining volleyball!). We have all had a great day and the children have enjoyed their first day of activities.
After two activities this morning we all ate a delicious lunch. For lunch we had a choice of baguettes with a variety of fillings (chicken tikka, ham or cheese). After lunch, we walked to the nearby beach and played in the sea and on the beach before our afternoon activities.
Dinner was another yummy meal and all of the children found something to eat. We could chose from: lasagne, fish fingers and chips or mushroom curry and for dessert we had apple crumble and custard. The children have just visited the shop and are tucking into sweets, ice creams, fizzy drinks and chocolate.
This evening, they will take part in an activity called 'ambush', another competitive game around Little Canada.
Tomorrow looks like another hot and sunny day at Little Canada - we are glad we are going kayaking!
