Whitemoor Lakes

On Monday 17th June 2019 some very excited year 5 and 6 children (and 3 very excited adults!) headed off to Whitemoor Lakes for an action packed residential. Keep an eye on this news feed throughout the week for pictures of how they are all getting on!

      Monday - Just arrived!                                           Tuesday morning - Happy Birthday Roxy!!           Action packed Tuesday!          






Wednesday report:

All going well - everyone asleep by 10.20pm last night and not a peep before 7am. Year 6 boys absolutely sparko apparently and had to be woken up by Mrs Pickles!!

Some of the site is flooded and below shows access to the first activity of the day! 


                                                       The climbing wall....seriously high!! 




Fencing this afternoon!                                                                                                                                         Year 6 Circus Skills below. 



 Year 6 tackling the Challenge Course



Thursday report - another good night's sleep had by all! Only one room awake by 7.45am so Mrs Pickles had to do the rounds again...!! 

Maybe the disco had something to do with it! Ready to go!


We have been told the flooding on site has been receding so hopefully the zip wire will be accessible for everyone to try before they return home - usually a real highlight of the trip. 

Everyone canoeing - looking dry so far!!




Now they've got their sea legs....why not try to build their own raft!!



Nearly ready to launch.....                                                                                              And they're off....not sure if they all managed to stay dry!!


 Friday report:

Well it looks like it has been a fantastic trip - a good final night was had by all. We have been inundated with great photos - here are a few more from yesterday and we are expecting everyone to take part in the zip wire challenge this morning.


                New school pet apparently.....



Abseiling action!
