Yesterday was the final full day, and it certainly was lots of fun for the group. The day started with cooked breakfast consisting of bacon, hash browns, beans and toast. This was the perfect fuel for their last day. Each group then completed the carousel of activities. The activities included: climbing, archery, zip wire, crate stacking and a low ropes challenge. Lunch was homemade pizza with salad which went down extremely well, with most people having seconds. Dinner was sausages with sweet potato mash and vegetables. After dinner, the children headed out to the Lee Abbey field for a bonfire. The children enjoyed star gazing and reflecting on the week, and all the fun they have had. It was such a lovely way to end the trip. This morning they have had croissants and are currently packing all their belongings before starting the return journey back to Redland. They have missed you all and can’t wait to see you!
Another fantastic day was had by all at Lee Abbey. Yesterday kicked off with a selection of delicious pastries- quite the treat. This was followed by a picturesque walk to Lynmouth. When they got there, everyone had a lovely picnic lunch. When they returned, everyone refuelled with cherry cake before heading out for the afternoon activities. These were climbing, low ropes and archery. Dinner was delicious – burgers in buns with chips. As you can imagine, this went down very well with the children.
After dinner, the children got into their pyjamas and got cosy in the ‘cave,’ ready for movie night.
This morning, everyone woke up with smiles on their faces, looking forward to a cooked breakfast. Everyone is eager to get started with activities on the last full day at Lee Abbey, but they are certainly looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
The first full day at Lee Abbey did not disappoint. Yesterday was an action-packed day! The day started with a delicious cooked breakfast including eggs, hash browns, beans and toast. Alongside this, there were cereals and porridge to help fuel the day ahead. After breakfast, the children were split into 3 groups. Each group did a different activity and these will be rotated throughout the rest of the week. These included flying through the woodland on the zip wire, reaching new heights on the climbing wall, as well as crate stacking as high as possible. So much fun! Lunch was a choice of tomato pasta or macaroni cheese, with a range of fresh salad. Dinner was jerk chicken with couscous and vegetables – delicious. The summer fruit cheesecake for pudding went down extremely well.
After dinner, the children tackled the egg challenge. They used a set of resources to create a container which would protect the egg when dropped from a height. Some were successful, others… well they weren’t quite as successful and the group were expecting scrambled egg for breakfast!
Everyone certainly slept well after that action-packed day.
This morning was a selection of scrumptious pastries. Everyone is going for a walk and a picnic to enjoy the glorious sunshine. Check back tomorrow for the next update.
The children and staff all arrived safely yesterday at the wonderful Lee Abbey. Upon arrival, bags were dropped off, and the group were whisked to Lynton. Here they enjoyed the beautiful coastal scenery on the walk down to Lynmouth where they had lunch. Unfortunately the weather was a bit drizzly but that didn’t stop everyone enjoying the fudge and gift shops!
After exploring Lynmouth, the group boarded the cliff railway to begin the journey back to Lynton- much quicker than walking! Everyone then hiked back to Lee Abbey, enjoying the fresh air and wonderful views.
Last night, chilli was on the menu and it was delicious. Even better, it was followed by ice cream. To wrap up the day, there was a tour around the Lee Abbey grounds and then the rest of the evening was spent in the sports hall doing some team building games. All was quiet as 34 very tired children (and 4 even more tired adults) slept extremely well!
This morning, the children are having a breakfast of scrambled eggs, beans and hash browns. Today’s activities are low ropes, crate stacking, zip wire and the climbing wall.
More news tomorrow.
Welcome back to Term 1! It’s been lovely to see all the children back in the school and ready to find out what they will learn about this term. A big hello to our youngest pupils who have joined us in Wrens and Owls. We hope that you are settling in well and enjoying the first days of your school adventure!
We are pleased to announce that Redland School have been awarded the School Games Gold Award for 2018/19 which makes that the 3rd year in a row. Well done Redland!!
Redland competed in the tag rugby County Finals on 10th June. The team played splendidly, only losing one of their four pool games finishing second in their group! They went into the pool for teams in second place and finished the competition in a credible 7th place out of 23 teams. Well done team! There is a photo of the team in the Gallery.
Salt and Pepper had their first holiday with one of the school’s families during the half term break. Thank you to the Dowds who have produced a lovely collage of their time with the rabbits.
Salt and Pepper, our lovely rabbits, have now moved out to their hutch and are loving being outside in the fresh air. They are proving very popular with the children who are eager to help with looking after them each day. A couple of photos have been added to our Photo Gallery – take a look!
Well done to our two tag rugby teams who took part in the annual Chippenham rugby festival. The popular event saw 19 teams compete against one another. Both teams played brilliantly, but one team won their pool going into the final winner’s pool. The final pool was fiercely contested but by winning five games and drawing one, Redland were clear winners. They will go through to the County finals on 10th May! Well done to all children who played!
