A quick update after another eventful day at Stubbington Study Centre.
Our day began with all children sleeping in until the 8am wake up bell and some having to be woken by staff after that. After a hearty cooked breakfast, room checks and a quick hunt for coats and in one case a pair of clean, dry socks, we set off to see if any animals had spent the night in our 5*hotels (read yesterday’s blog).
Of all our ‘hotels’ set out, four still has residents…curled up fast asleep and rudely awoken by a class of 31 children staring at them. For many children this was their first opportunity to see a mouse up close and after measuring them, we spent some time studying them carefully and creating detailed sketches.
In the afternoon, it was time for ‘Earthquake’ an assault course with a difference. In teams of 8, the children had to carry a range of survival equipment around the obstacles. Their feet were not allowed to touch the floor and they had to get around obstacles that included tunnels, water swings and moving bridges. This activity was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children, many of whom did not want the activity to finish.
Then to this this evening – The S Factor – the weekly Stubbington talent show. All week the children have been learning songs to perform, with their team, at this grand finale. The children all participated singing their team song, with actions and enthusiasm. The show was won by the Kestrels, which included some girls from Fordingbridge Juniors.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow afternoon,
Miss Lewis, Miss Gritt and Mr Morrison
