PGL Day 4
Well the last full day at PGL has arrived before we knew it and it didn't disappoint! The morning saw 2 great activities with the team building Jacob's ladder and the abseiling wall. Yet again, the children pushed themselves to, or sometimes beyond, their limits. They showed great support for each other and it was great to see so many conquer their nerves.
For the afternoon, the giant swing provided the last of the thrill-seekers activities and remains one of the favourites amongst many. Orienteering added a change of pace to the day but still tested the teamwork and perseverance of the children with a lot of fun had by all.
With one more night before our return it has been a great week and we've had a tremendous time. 😁
PGL Day 3
Crossing the halfway point for our trip, we weren't hanging about today (well not all day anyway). In an opportunity to keep their feet on the ground, the children took part in some team games and activities as well as challenging themselves mentally with problem solving. Another if the day's activities for the day was the trapeze, where children climbed to the top of a pole before leaping out and grabbing a trapeze. The fourth and final of the pre-dinner activities was canoeing, with many children also taking the opportunity to cool off from the afternoon sun.
The evening saw a mystery take place where children had to complete tasks, gather clues and eventually solve the case.
Another great day and hard to believe there is only one full day left.
Tomorrow promises to be fun-packed day with many high flying events 😀
PGL Day 2
The first full day of activities really hit the mark. After polishing off breakfast the children took part in a sensory trail, trusting their leader to guide them blindfolded through a series of obstacles. The other morning activity gave the children to practice their Robin Hood impressions and head to the archery range.
The fun didn't stop there and the afternoon activities were better still than the morning. The zip wire was our high flying event with the other being raft building. Although every attempt was made to put together a sea worth vessell, somehow, many ended up taking a refreshing dip in the lake.
In the evening the children were hunting for facts about countries in a scavenger style race 'around the world'.
Take a look at today's pictures. See if you can spot a slightly soggy staff member! 😁
PGL Day 1
Although the weather was damp, our spirits certainly weren't. The children were in excellent voice on the coach and before we knew it, we had arrived. Lunch was first on the agenda and we were all well fed before our activities.
Rock climbing proved to be a hit and the children all pushed themselves as far as they could, some beyond what they thought they could achieve.
The children also had the opportunity to don their costumes for wacky races. From showing their ninja acting skills to making a chain of elephants the children threw themselves into everything and had terrific fun.
Have a look at some of our photos from today.
Everyone is looking forward to another exciting day tomorrow 😀
Thank you to all that popped in to the PGL information meeting on Tuesday. If you didn't manage to, I have uploaded the slides below. Feel free to e-mail the class e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Have a lovely break.
Welcome to Obsidian Class,
Class 6 have a very busy and exciting year ahead of them and we will keep you up to date through this class page. Our class is named after the precious stone Obsidian; a jet black volcanic rock symbolising truth, protection, positivity and resilience. A very apt name for the children in Obsidian class.
Although life is a bit different back at school, the children have settled in really well so far and seem ready for the challenges ahead.
You will also find some worksheets below. The aim of these is to provide you with some optional extra activities to do at home in support of your child's school learning.
As always, I am very happy to discuss any aspect of your child's school life, please use the class email to send any queries and I will endeavour to respond with an email or phone call as soon as I can.
