Today, we had another very busy day on the moors and thankfully we managed to avoid the passing showers.
In the evening, we spent some time in our class groups playing games and visiting the round house.
We are looking forwards to seeing you all tomorrow when we arrive back.
Wednesday 12th July
Once again, we have been very lucky with the weather, only encountering the occasional shower. The team on the moors had fun wriggling between the rocks, but we were worried that Mrs Strand might get stuck!
The other team spent the morning problem solving and the afternoon raft building.
In the evening, we held our annual dance off. There were some amazing moves from the children and some not so amazing ones from the adults.
We look forward to sharing the whole video during the leavers' service.
Tuesday 11th July
Our first full day at Heatree has been exciting and very busy.
Half of us went out for a day on the moors and despite the grey clouds, we stayed surprisingly dry all day.
When we reached Hound Tor, we had the chance to do some rock scrambling and weaseling. There were some tight squeezes, but we really pushed ourselves to succeed.
The other half of us spent the day on the Heatree grounds, where we were raft building, climbing and doing archery.
Like the children on the moors, we were very brave and also worked very well as a team.
Depending on our archery aim, the forfeit for poor was to eat dinner with a reduced selection of cutlery. One of us was particularly surprised to find we had to eat our mash and pie using just the fork handles!
After dinner, we spent the evening outside playing running games, football and grass sledging. After such a long day, we are definitely ready for bed!

We are happy to report that we have arrived at Heatree safe and sound. Thankfully the journey was very smooth and we arrived at 2:30pm ready for our first activity, orienteering.
After spending some time unpacking, we had a delicious pasta bake for dinner, served by two very familiar faces. For pudding, we had apple crumble with custard. There were lots of empty plates with many children asking for seconds.
This evening, we are having some free time, including board games, table football and some time outdoors.
We look forward to sharing more news with you tomorrow.
