Welcome to our PGL Gallery and news update
We all had a good (ish) nights sleep, and are now packing before breakfast (what a task!!) Earlier on yesterday, one of the instructors said that her group could throw some water on her as it was so hot. The children asked me if they could 'get' me too. I said (because it was hot, a little water would have been refreshing) that they could sprinkle me a little later. The afternoon was jam-packed with activities and fun and then by evening I thought they had forgotten.... oh no.... so, a promise is a promise. At 9.15pm I was expecting a little bit of water from their water bottles - how naive! (I'm still not sure where they got them from but most of the children suddenly produced 2 full bottles of water, and obviously it was both groups by then, ready and waiting!) thankfully, Ms Corlett (my saviour) said only one bottle could be deployed!
We are now about to go off to breakfast, then it is our turn for the zip wire and aeroball! We are looking forward to seeing everyone later xx
After a reasonably good night's sleep the children were all bright and breezy with a good game of football going on before breakfast. Then on to the activities.....
Mrs Sheraton said, "We have all had a great morning. We have been rafting and playing on the giant swing and are right now in the middle of abseiling and archery. The children are being an absolute pleasure to be with. I am very proud of their support, manners and spirit."
Quotes from the children:
Ellie, "It's been absolutely fantastic."
Amy-Louise and Amy T, "It's amazing here and the staff are really friendly."
Amy T, "This has been the best experience of my life."
All children, "It's better than Bushcraft!" "I love the giant swing." "The cabins were nice and clean (until the boys arrived)!" "The food is great!"
Everyone arrived safely and it is, of course, very hot, but plenty of water has been consumed! Here is a taste of where the children have been this afternoon....
Quotes of the day from the children...
"It's better than I thought it would be."
"So proud of Amy-Louise- her target was to get half way up the pole.... and she smashed it to the top!"
"Amy, Amy, Ellie and Millie- all made it to the top with support from each other."
"Harvey exceeded his target of half way to get to the top rung, just not quite on the pole- but so, so proud of him!"
"Jonathan exceeded his target- he struggled, but he got to the very top..... he's in one of the photos!"
Mrs Sheraton has said, " I'm impressed already with the teamwork and support the children are giving each other - without any prompting. Let's hope it stays that way! They are all looking forward to finding out what's for tea!"
Welcome to Cameron Class Page
This term we are continuing to study World War II and the effect that it had on Britain. In particular we will learn about how the war started, how Britain changed and key moments in the war including evacuation.
We will be linking topic and literacy together and writing diary extracts of a child of that time, while reading our class book.
Over the term we will make identity badges, gas masks, propaganda posters
