We will continue to upload pictures of school 2018 here
After the rather protracted departure we all arrived safely to blue skies and a sparkling sea. We have checked into our rooms, had an enormous supper and are now waiting for a quiz night. PGL are finalizing our activities for tomorrow so remember to check back when you will be able to see photos of what we are getting up to. Everyone is very excited to be here and looking forward to an action-packed day tomorrow.
All the children slept well and woke up very early, ready to start their first full day. We first had to thank Laila and Guilia who we had got out of bed the night before to rescue Samantha from a giant spider in her bedroom - Kedrick Kindness awards to both of them. Amongst the activities that have been completed today have been a beautiful beach walk, making a fully functioning buggy (it is rumoured that Miss Williams' group had a radio in theirs), braving abseiling and the giant swing, orienteering and street surfing - Ravenstone being the coolest surfing dudes in Osmington Bay. We are all very tired, but have all eaten masses and looking forward to tomorrow's adventures!
Another fantastic day despite raining all day. Although we have been wet for most of the day the children have remained enthusiastic and challenged themselves on the giant swing, the trapeze, archery, orienteering and the zip wire, there might even have been a few teachers who are expecting Dorothy Determined awards for digging deep and literally throwing themselves in to the challenges. The children are already complaining that tomorrow is their last day but are also looking forward to the disco tomorrow night! It hasn't been a great day for photos but we hope the gallery will give you a flavour of what they have been up to.
We woke to clear skies and the sun has shone all day, we finally feel we have dried out after yesterday. Another busy day in Dorset: completing the sensory trail which ensured we developed our team building and communication skills, we abseiled and climbed, learned the finer points of fencing and duelled with skill and flair and some of us were fortunate enough to walk on the beach. Tonight is the disco and they children are getting ready at the moment ready to show the rest of Osmington Bay their moves - Charlotte we will not let you down! We will be sorry to leave tomorrow but not before some more climbing, abseiling and mountain biking.
We all returned after a fantastic week, very tired but with memories which will last a lifetime. Year 6 have been a pleasure to be with and the staff have loved seeing them challenge themselves, take risks, bond together, develop team building , leadership and communication skills. At all times they supported and encouraged each other and truly lived the Ravenstone values. Happy half term Year 6, you were brilliant and all deserve a rest!
