Congratulations to our boys and girls football teams who participated in the Chippenham Level 2 Tournament. Both teams played exceptionally well with great sportsmanship. The girls won their competition and will go through to the Mid-Wilts finals. Good luck girls!
Please see the Redland Open Day Flyer advertising our open day for Reception intake 2019.
The children have had a great time, and their last day of activities was very full!
The carousel of activities such as archery, zip wire and climbing continued, with a lovely lunch consisting of pasta with bacon or pesto pasta to keep everyone fuelled up!
Following a delicious tea of jerk chicken with sweet potato fries and pineapple upside down cake, the children went over to the fire pit, which overlooks the coast. Games were played, songs were sung, and the children had some toasted marshmallows with hot chocolate.
Before bedtime, the children began packing their things and tidying their bedrooms, ready for Friday’s departure.
This morning, breakfast was bacon, hash browns, beans and toast.
We expect the coach to arrive back here sometime after 2:00pm. We will keep you updated via text.
Yesterday, the children went on a 6 ½ mile walk with Ms Hull leading the way! The weather was beautiful. They walked through the forest, over fields to a point where they overlooked the sea. All the children did very well and met some farm animals and wildlife on the way. Apparently, upon encountering cows, Mrs Kay proved herself to be quite the ‘Cow Whisperer’!
After a well-deserved lunch, the children enjoyed a carousel of activities in the afternoon: Low ropes, climbing and archery. We’re yet to hear who the budding Robin Hoods and Maid Marians were!
Dinner last night was very popular – Build a Burger. After dinner, the children were so shattered from the fun packed day that they chilled out with a DVD.
This morning the children are being treated to Pain au Chocolates as part of their continental breakfasts. Today they will be doing a carousel of activities: zip wire, crate stack and the climbing wall.
Look out for another exciting installment tomorrow!

Day 2 at the Lee Abbey House! The children had a good sleep – most had to be woken up this morning after the previous day’s activities!
There was a carousel of activities on Tuesday, which the children enjoyed, including climbing, crate stacking and the zip wire. The weather has brightened up a bit, and is set to be good over the next couple of days.
Tea last night was sausage casserole followed by fruit salad. After a full day of outdoor adventures, the children had a relaxing evening watching a film and enjoying some of their sweets!
This morning, breakfast is scrambled egg, sausage, beans and toast. Each day, the children can always help themselves to cereal, yoghurt and fruit, so they could have 2 breakfasts! This is probably a good thing, as Ms Hull is taking them on a long walk this morning, and knowing Ms Hull, it will be long!
More news tomorrow.
The children have all arrived safe and well. The journey was a little longer than expected due to a diversion, so everyone was ready for lunch on arrival!
All the bags were dropped off at Lee Abbey and then everyone went into Linton and Lynmouth for lunch and a ride on the cliff railway. Ms Hull said that when the children were visiting gift shops in the high street, she had lots of lovely comments from the shopkeepers on how polite and courteous the children were.
Back at Lee Abbey, the children had a delicious tea – lasagne followed by chocolate mousse. The residential centre has been revamped and redecorated, and I think our school is one of the first to see the new Lee Abbey! After tea, the children went for a walk around the grounds and were told the story of Squire Bailey, who used to own Lee Abbey. I’ve been to Lee Abbey many times, and I’ve never heard this story, so I look forward to hearing it when the children get back!
Everyone slept well and woke up this morning to a cooked breakfast! This will set them up for today’s activities: crate stacking, archery and low ropes. The weather is a bit windy and rainy this morning, but I’m sure this won’t dampen their spirits!
More news tomorrow morning.
