Wow what a day!

Posted by Tom in General News    


We started with a walk up Gummers Howe. It was a little slippy at times and pretty steep but what a view from the top! Definitely worth the walk! Once at the top there were a few cows which meant we explored a new adventurous route to the bottom. We walked through fields of long grass, sections of mud and did our best (mostly!) to avoid the cow pats! Onward bound we arrived at Brown Howe for lunch with a beatufiul view of Conniston. We continued on a scenic route to our gyhll scramble. Here we put on our buoyancy aids, waterproofs and helmets before heading towards the stream. We took our first steps into the water and set off on the hair raising ascent upstream. Needless to say, there were a few tense moments, and yes, we all ended up soaking wet! What an achievement – we all made it to the top!

We had another wonderful evening meal with a Mexican theme – Nachos and chilli con carni followed by a cheesecake.

We have spent the evening in the depths of the woods with a campfire toasting marshmallows before finishing off with a fantastic talent show!

Signing off on night two (hopefully with a bit more sleep!)

Castle Head Day 1

Posted by Tom in General News  Tagged    
  1. We made it! We’ve had a busy first day, we begun by learning how to make a fire in our bushcraft activity and some students made shelters (although nobody wanted to sleep in it!) Next we got our helmets on and headed to the low ropes course – The students were definitely braver than the staff and EVERYONE completed the course! Our final outdoor activity was the assault course and we all finished very muddy but full of smiles! We enjoyed a delicious evening meal; soup starter, BBQ chicken, risotto, aubergine pizza and sweet potato fries with a chocolate cake to finish, there was empty plates all round! We’ve ended our night with snacks, games and films in the games room with some students opting for a sweaty game of football instead. Signing off for what we hope is an early night. We will update you on our adventures tomorrow. Goodnight from Castle Head!

This blog is about Faith.  This week Faith has been to Maths is Fun Day.  She liked playing all the games.  Faith liked the fruit matching game the best and really enjoyed having a hot dog.  Faith said she was most proud of going to Anna’s music lesson in the hall.  She listened to African music and played some bells.
