Manor Adventure 2011 Diary

Diary Entry - Day 5 Friday 20th May 22:47
What a brilliant week - we all made it home in one piece! Well done to all the Year 6s for being so adventurous and throwing themselves wholeheartedly into all the activities. Thank you to all the staff at Manor Adventure for a great week!
Diary Entry - Day 5 Friday 20th May 09.45
Well we are now coming to the end of our Manor Adventure experience. The children are currently on their second to last activity - one group are up in the trees on the zip wire and the other are learning about campcraft. They are going to finish packing their bags in break time - I wouldn't want to be opening some of these bags tonight! Once they have vacated their rooms in break time they will be playing some wide games (tip and hide and seek) before lunch and then we will start our long journey home. The children are all looking forward to getting home tonight and seeing everyone. See you at the Sea Terminal between 9.30 and 10.00pm.
Diary Entry - Day 4 Thursday 19th May 14:20
A fully dry day so far... well no rain anyway. One group did get soaking wet this morning when the raft they built fell apart in the water - they all made sure Lizzy stayed dry though and kept her afloat on a barrel! Great teamwork! The other group went flying down the zip wire, there were a couple who didn't really want to do it in the beginning but they all ended up having a second go by the end of the session.
At lunchtime Anagh Coar and Fairfield joined up for a big game of football against one of the schools from England that are staying here - our team just lost the match but congratulated the other team and are plotting a rematch next break time. All the children are now playing some team games out on the field before the other group gets to see if they are any better at building rafts!

Diary Entry - Day 3 Wednesday 18th May 21:55

Weather wise we have had a pretty miserable day today - it rained all morning so we got soaking wet during all the activities that should have been dry. The children have had fun on the climbing wall, low ropes, initiative exercises, archery, video making and blind trail today in their individual groups and then finished the day off with a mini-olympics and an evening walk. It was nice to get out of the Manor Adventure site and have a look round the local area (that's what the staff thought anyway - not sure if the children thought that!). Thankfully the weather improved for the walk and we actually saw some late evening sunshine. We finished the day off with a cup of hot chocolate and completed our diary entries ready for doing some writing back at school next week.

Diary Entry - Day 2 Tuesday 17th May 19:30

Well what a fantastic day - the children have really got stuck into all the activities and have ended up a bit wet after the water activities this afternoon. We've had a bit of drizzle throughout the day today but this didn't really matter when we were all getting wet kayaking and canoeing. Some of the children enjoyed capsizing their own kayaks in the lake and Miss Kennaugh was determined to keep away from anyone who thought it might have been a good idea to capsize her kayak! Mr Coole and Sam were the last robbers standing in the game of Cops and Robbers until Fraser caught Mr Coole with his expert paddling. They weren't aware that the prize was to paddle round kneeling up in their kayaks though and being the new cops for the next game!

The children are now enjoying a disco while the staff enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in the staff room! Mrs Burton is very tired now after being the quickest climber up the wall - not far ahead of Sophie C and Caitlyn - and having taken part in the canoeing and kayaking all afternoon too.

We send a big hello to everyone back at school and home. We hope you are all having as much fun as we are here.

Diary Entry - Day 1 Monday 16th May 17:00

We all arrived safe and sound at Manor Adventure in Abernant at about 3pm this afternoon. The children managed not to be sick on the coach on the way down this year, which was good! The travel sickness tablets did the trick! The 2 groups have just completed their first activity and are now sorting their rooms out before they go down for dinner. Then we have abseiling and fencing tonight!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This page will be updated daily when we go to Manor Adventure in May. Parents and other pupils in school will be able to see what the Year 6 have been up to each day on their adventure holiday in Wales.

Here are a few photos from last year's trip to show everyone what they've got to look forward to!
