Manor Adventure 2012 Diary

Diary Entry - Day 5 Friday 18th May 2012 23:00

The children all enjoyed a morning of activities on the Obstacle Course and Climbing Wall before a lovely fish and chip lunch today. They did really well getting their bags sorted and getting changed in time for the coach to arrive at 1pm to collect us. Not sure what state some of the bags are in though and don't envy the parents who have to get all the washing done, although after an independent week, the children should be ready to learn how to wash their own clothes now!

We said good-bye and thank you to the Manor Adventure staff and started on our long coach journey back to Liverpool at 1.30pm, quite a few of us managed to get a bit of shut eye on the coach which was needed in order to last the rest of the day. Once we got to Liverpool we enjoyed a packed tea, provided by Manor Adventure, by the Liver Buildings before we boarded. Luckily the crossing was smoother than on the way out so we didn't use any of the sick bags that had been distributed.

Everyone returned safely to the Sea Terminal at 9.30pm and were reunited with their parents who were all keen to hear what they had been up to and how they had behaved. It really has been an amazing week of adventure; well done to all the children for facing their fears, setting themselves new goals, working so well as a team and once again representing the school so well.

Diary Entry - Day 4 Thursday 17th May 2012 19:25

Everyone partied hard at the disco last night with Fairfield (even Mr. Coole was dragged up for a dance but he didn't last long). We were lucky enough to have a later breakfast sitting today, so for those who couldn't get to sleep because their adrenaline was still pumping from all that dancing the lie in was appreciated.

After breakfast the day started at a nice leisurely pace with one group producing their own zombie comedy film (Zomcom) and the other learning some survival camp craft skills. Next it was a chance to test their teamwork, communication and balancing skills on the low ropes and for the other group, archery.

This afternoon Mrs. Coole decided against the 8 mile cycle ride with the boys and left Mr. Coole to it (she took Miss Kennaugh's advice on that one after her biking experience yesterday!). The boys had a brilliant time and there was lots of whooping as they took the downhills at speed, rode through fords, got soaking wet and had mud trails all up their backs. There was plenty of huffing, puffing and panting on the uphills - especially 'One Mile Hill'. The other group got the chance to be Hollywood actors and produce their own film and used their initiative on a number of puzzles and problems.

Low ropes for one group and Initiative Exercises for the other tonight and then the horrible task of finding all their belongings and stuffing them into their bags before bed. If they make a good job of it then they might be allowed a hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows... we'll see...

Diary Entry - Day 3 Wednesday 16th May 2012 17:25

We all woke up to a beautiful sunny day today after another good sleep - these activities are really tiring everyone out! Group 16 had a 7 mile bike ride this morning whilst Group 15 were getting wet and mucky during raft building and on the blind trail.

This afternoon one group have improved their archery skills and learnt some camp craft. The other group have scaled new heights in the abseiling and attempted to build a sturdy raft (they all ended up in the water as a couple of barrels came loose).

Everyone is busy getting ready for the disco tonight with Fairfield School - they kindly let our school join them otherwise we'd have had to miss out on a disco! Thanks Fairfield!

Diary Entry - Day 2 Tuesday 15th May 2012 19:15

After a really good night's sleep Year 6 were all well and truly ready for another day of activities. They filled up on a nice English breakfast before heading down to the lake for canoeing and kayaking this morning - no one got too wet until the very end when a couple of the boys fell in (on purpose!).

This afternoon both groups have had a go on the zip-line and showed some very encouraging and thoughtful team spirit for anyone who struggled. One of the instructors said Group 15 were one of the most considerate and caring groups they had ever seen.


The rest of the day's activities have been abseiling, fencing and the blind trail. A few people have conquered their fear of heights today, showing great resilience and determination. Well done everyone!

They'll be treated to a hot chocolate and biscuit before bed time tonight before another good night's sleep. A few have already said they can't wait to get to bed (or was that just Miss Kennaugh!?).


Diary Entry - Day 1 Monday 14th May 2012 19:30

We all arrived safely at Manor Adventure at about 2.30pm after a long journey. The boat journey was a bit of a bumpy ride at the beginning with a number of people feeling sick (including Mr. Coole!). Luckily it calmed down after about an hour and the rest of the journey was enjoyable. All the children have worked together in one large group on their two activities since we arrived. They have competed in Manor Olympics this afternoon and are currently enjoying playing some team games now before bed time. Everyone will be ready for a good night's sleep tonight!
