Arthog

Monday 

We all arrived safely at Arthog.  A bit of a twisty ride with a bit of sickness but we're all OK now.  The children are having a great time.  We did team building games this afternoon before going to the beach.  Tea was an brilliant spag balls, pizza or even a bit of both.  Tonight we did nightline which involved going over an assault course in the pitch black.  All the children worked excellently together.  Just going to make hot chocolate then I think they will all settle quickly.  Fingers crossed.

Tuesday

Children settled eventually but were still very excited.  Got all the children up at seven, ready for the day ahead.  After a cooked breakfast it was off for our activities.  My group did canoeing this morning and rock climbing this afternoon.  After a lovely dinner we took the children for a night time walk along the breakwater at Fairbourne.  They are all shattered so hopefully it will be a quiet night tonight.  All the children are fine. Photos will appear on the gallery when we return to school but I'm afraid the internet is very poor here so I cant publish any at the moment.

Wednesday

Another fantastic day.  The hill walking was amazing.  The children walked all the way from the top of a mountain down to the sea, following the stages of a river.  They are also all taking part in the John Muir bronze certificate where the children must work at appreciating the nature around them and helping to conserve it.  With that in mind, we went down to the sea and spent some time collecting all the plastic we could.  Tonight was orienteering, with the ultimate prize up for grabs for first place, a bag of Haribos. It was a close competition but in the end there was a clear winning team.  Well done to all.  They have all now settled into bed after their hot chocolate.  Hopefully we will have another quiet night.  The children are all doing well.

 Thursday

A very wet day today in more than one way.  It has been pouring down but also the children have been raft building and gorge walking. The raft building involved four plastic drums,, six planks of wood and a few bits of ropes. The children had to put it all together then test it out on the lake.  They all did very well, with only a few children ending up in the water.  The gorge walking did not leave anyone dry.  The children and staff walked up this fast flowing river, getting soaked on the way.  This evening the children did a picture search around the centre before settling down with their hot chocolate before going to bed.  They are all very excited about coming home tomorrow.

I would like to thank all the staff who have come with me to help look after your children.  They have worked tirelessly from early in the morning to late in the evening to make sure all the children are safe and have a great time.  I'm sure that they are looking forward to getting back to see their families tomorrow aswell.
