Class 3 Wildside Residential
Class 3 have arrived and settled in at the Wildside adventure! We've been playing games in the woods, had lunch with some pesky visitors and settled into our tents. We are looking forward to a trip to the river this afternoon to cool off!
This afternoon, we did several woodland activities such as zipwire, ultimate tag and butterfly catching. After all that hard work, we walked down to the river for a splash around. The children enjoyed dunking themselves under, cooling off and searching for river creatures.
The children then feasted on a locally sourced vegetable pasta, fruit platter and toasted marshmallows. We are currently sitting around the campfire after assisting staff with returning the sheep and feeding the animals.
Last night we did our night walk and campfire activities. As soon as it was dark, we walked carefully into the woods and admired the night sky. Then our torches were taken and we had to follow a glow stick trail through the woods!
When we reached the end of the trail, we tracked the movement of bats using our torches and a bat detector.
We ended the night with a midnight song around the fire and finally got off to sleep just before 1am!
