Year 5 Residential Day 1

After departing on time, we arrived at Bewerley Park to bright blue skies. The children eagerly departed the bus and headed down the lane to the outdoor centre where we met Jonny and Kate, our instructors for the week. The first jobs were getting our Bewerley Park waterproofs and making our beds. Then we did a quiz to get to know the Bewerley Park rules. Lunch of Jacket Potato with a variety of fillings was enjoyed by all and then we got to go on our first activities. Group 1 was canoeing on the dam and Group 2 was Ghyll scrambling. The children all got very wet...as did the teachers. The evening activity is swimming...more water...before supper and bed. All the children are very happy and excited! Here's a little picture of some of the boys in their dormitory. The rest are still getting showered...

Sorry the picture is upside down...modern technology!?!
