Miss Wray's Group
We had an amazing, fun filled 3 days! Well done to everyone. You displayed excellent team work and learnt new skills.
Miss Miller’s GroupEveryone should be very proud of themselves as each and every one of you achieved so much in just three days! You tackled activities by giving it your all, you splashed and paddled your way around the lake and scaled some incredible heights. Well done and thank you for being super throughout the trip!
We learnt new songs with actions and dance routines (some teachers may even have have learnt the floss...). We also enjoyed s’mores around the campfire. They’re easy to make you just need a biscuit, chocolate and a freshly toasty marshmallow to make a gooey, lovely mess!

The children have had a great last morning at PGL! The coach has arrived at PGL to bring the children home so we are hoping to have them all loaded on by 1.45pm to leave. Depending on the traffic, we are expecting the children back at school at approximately 3.30pm.
Thursday 14th June - 5.30pm
The children have all had a great afternoon with the majority of them getting rather wet during the afternoon's activities! They're currently getting ready for another delicious dinner which will be followed by a campfire!
Thursday 14th June - 2.30pm
Here's a little insight into what each group has been getting up to if they've been unable to send photos:
Miss Birchall's group - We've been having a fantastic time and so far we have tried our hand at the following: building and sailing a raft (resulting in a few wet children!), high ropes (during which all of the children challenged themselves to reach the highest point that they could and they all learnt to billet), quad biking and climbing. We've just been to the tuck shop for some hard-earned sweets and souvenirs. We are now off to enjoy the challenge course and trapeze before dinner and marshmallows around the campfire.
Miss Miller's group - We have thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities and really challenged ourselves in all of them so far - what a variety of activities! Yesterday we started by trapeze in the woods followed by the high ropes and quad biking. A delicious dinner followed and finally we competed using our team work for the amazing robot wars. Today we have been encouraging one another on the challenge course and conquered our fears on the climbing wall.The sun is shining and now we're using our senses as we've been blindfolded! We can't wait to keep the discovering the new activities and pushing ourselves in our team.
Miss Wray's group - My group have worked incredibly well together and have demonstrated excellent team work. They faced their fears of height on the high ropes and the vertical challenge. We tested our communication skills on the sensory trail and we worked together to complete the challenge course. Most recently, we drove quad bikes!! This afternoon we are canoeing and raft building. Andras has a fear of heights but has really pushed himself to do his best. Elma, Jamie, Isabelle, Aveen, Owen and Lucas have been amazing at encouraging other members of our groups. Katie and Ava have been helping others by showing them what to do and having no fear. As usual, Florence has been her cheerful self and kept everyone's spirits high. We've had a wonderful time, everyone has had loads of fun and they've learnt some annoying songs, which they will no doubt sing incessantly when they get home. We've taken lots of photographs and the pictures will be uploaded as soon as we can access the internet.
Mrs Tait's group - We had great fun yesterday raft building and falling into the water too! Then we went to the high ropes course and the children loved a challenge. This morning we tackled the climbing wall and everyone reached their goal - well done! They enjoyed making a member of their team a robot last night and working together to ensure theirs was the best. The group have been praised highly for their behaviour and ability to line up! Before lunch today, we had a great fun on the challenge course, which was a personal highlight. Everyone is having a great time, including Mrs Tait!
Mr Whitehead's group - My group started with the raft building and worked together to build a great raft, but we did spend more time in water than on the actual raft! We've also completed the high ropes course, facing our fears of heights and we've all beaten our target heights. We've been zooming around on quad bikes and worked on our communication skills in the sensory trail. We have just fuelled up on sweets from the tuck shop and are now ready for the trapeze and challenge course this afternoon. We are all getting stuck in and pushing ourselves to our limits!

We apologise for the lack of photos during the trip but there is very limited signal at the PGL centre. The staff there have taken plenty of photos but are unable to upload them to the website and are struggling to email them over to the school. Here are the photos we've had so far and if they are able to send anymore, we'll put them straight onto this page.
Wednesday 13th June - 10.30am
The coaches have arrived at PGL and the children are eagerly awaiting their first activity. Please keep visiting this page to see regular updates of what the children are getting up to - as long as the internet allows it!

Further to our PGL Residential meeting last night, please find below the documents that were handed out and a copy of the presentation given too. Following feedback, we have contacted the centre about the possibility of hiring bedding at a reduced rate to the one originally offered. Further information will be sent out in due course if this is possible.
