Miss Hooper at the Beginning of the Week
MIss Hooper at the End of the Week
Happy Birthday Kian!!!!
Today was another day full of fun activities. We even had sunshine! YAY! Sunshine! And a holiday without sunshine is just a nightmare.
This week has flown by. Just think... you'll all have your little giggle monsters back in your arms come tomorrow afternoon. Then Miss Hooper can finally get some sleep. Whoo Hoo!
In truth, this was one of the most fun times we have ever had. Mr. Rule was so impressed with how the children conducted themselves. It was truly great to watch all the children run around like chickens with ruffled feathers and smiling beaks, flapping their wings and laying eggs... wait... maybe that was the bird watching we did this morning.
The children really enjoyed it. They'll all be eager to shrug their shoulders and play it cool. But remember, we have documented evidence that your child is smiling. It's been a blast.
Scavenger Hunt and Roasting Marshmallows
This morning, Miss Hooper was really annoyed with us, so she told us to take a hike. How rude!
Despite this, we were all determined to hike above the lake, come hill or high water. Not surprisingly, a few pupils even tried to turn up for the hike with two left hiking shoes! Imagine! Two left hiking shoes… We had to give them a right boot. These same children claimed to be experienced trail runners. We just didn’t realise they meant they trailed from behind everyone else.
Anyway, getting to the top of the hill was great fun, but honestly, it was all downhill from there. Take a look at these photos, it will summit up all nicely. Enjoy.
Roasting Marshmallows and Scavenger Hunt
Whilst standing on the edge of the lake today, I shouted across to someone: “How do you get to the other side of the lake?”
“You are on the other side”, was the reply.
Wise words... wise words.
If you've been watering what we've been doing, we've had a really good paddling. No, for reels, it was in-tents.
Today was full of water sports, hence the water puns. The children were all eager to go with the float and really enjoyed themselves. I think having the opportunaty to take part in lots of activities which they (perhaps) have never done before and have a growth mindset towards is really a testament to the fabulous parents and families we have in Hadlow. Your children have been amazing!
Check out your little stars in action:
Rest assured... we got this.
Well, after waving goodbye to parents and children alike, Hadlow's Year 5 and 6 left the nest and flew off into the distance, arriving shortly after in Brecon Beacons, Wales. We made it!!
Upon arriving, we hopped into our tents, dropped off our things, and headed out to our first activity! And believe it or not, the weather Miss Hooper ordered was right on queue! HOT and SUNNY!
Here are some action shots from our first day!
