Well we made it through the weekend. We are older, wiser, considerably more tired and rather less exuberant than we were on Friday afternoon but we have returned better equipped to work as a team and well versed in taking risks and encouraging our friends. In short, we have had a ball. The seemingly endless supply of goodies was not entirely consumed despite the best efforts of most of the children and probably aided by Mr Elliott's slight memory lapse. (The teachers have a strong suspicion that the children may have been rather 'conservative' in their judgements of the 'half' that they handed over on Friday evening, but are forgiven based on our unbiased and grateful thanks for their fabulous behaviour.) Mums and dads, your children were a credit to themselves, their families and our school.
Some children were awake at 6am, whilst others were subjected to Mrs Sketchley's enthusiastic morning call. No need for pre breakfast football this morning either. Instead we played strip the bed and find the sock, then find its partner and its owner. Surprisingly, many children did not recognise their own clothes this morning. The tidiest bedroom awards go to Joseph, Jaydon, Fabian and Abdullah and to Keera and Milena. The messiest cannot be named here, but their families have our deepest sympathies.
After breakfast, we enjoyed bouldering, Jacob's ladder and archery. Now we are all looking forward to plenty of sleep.
Special thanks to Mr Carver, Mr Elliott and Mrs Pratt. You, too, are the epitome of great teamwork. Night,
night, sleep tight, hope the bed bugs don't bite.
