To round off our excellent stay at Avon Tyrell, we enjoyed a fun filled indoor campfire with marshmallows, songs and games. The children were greeted by special guests Mr and Mrs Robertson who enjoyed the conga and competitive rock, paper, scissors.
The evening concluded, in us sharing birthday cake courtesy of Mr and Mrs Dawson. It was thoroughly enjoyed so thank you.
The showered and tired children settled to bed well by 9:00pm so a good night sleep will hopefully be in store including the teachers 🤞🏼
Tomorrow we will explore the grounds and facilities before coming back home. Children will be back by the end of school so normal pick up time is required.
All the children have been a credit to you and the school with on site staff complimenting their manners and enthusiasm.
We will see you tomorrow at 3pm at the usual pick up spot!
Another busy day that started with a 6am wake up call from the children. Breakfast was wolfed down and enjoyed by all.
The morning started with a range of activities; raft building, shelter building, pioneering, archery and orienteering. The children took to them with enthusiasm, determination and resilience.
After this was lunch (pizza and chips) which again was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
We are currently taking part in our last two activities before dinner and campfire. Then hopefully bed at a reasonable time.
We will update once more this evening.
Year 4 have settled in to Avon Tyrell as if it were a second home. After lunch we completed two activities ranging from tree climbing, archery and pioneering.
Next came a hearty dinner (some people even had seconds) and a delicious dessert of apple crumble and custard.
Following this was time to tidy rooms and sort bedding. A skill that lots had perfected but some had no covers and messy rooms 🙂
Finally was the night walk which involved learning about the history of the grounds and playing some games which I hope the children will show you.
Currently, most children are asleep as our busy day has worn them out. Let’s home myself and Mr McKellar get a good night sleep as well.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to add photos as I’m working from my mobile phone but we will hopefully set up a reliable WiFi signal tomorrow to be able to upload pictures with the text.
All is well and we will upload a post at a similar time tomorrow evening depending on the bedtime tomorrow.
