...and it just keeps getting hotter! So glad that some of us got to spend time in the water today - we sure needed it after some of the activities in the baking sun (Giant Swing, Quad Biking, Crate Challenge...)
Loads of heroes and heroines today conquering their fears, and LOADS of nice comments about how great we are from the instructors and even other teachers.
We decided to cool off after dinner with some "water related" activities. Just what we needed before a good night's sleep.
Thank you for all your lovely messages- the children really enjoy hearing them!
Still filthy, still sweaty, still smiling!

Another hot and sticky day in the sun! We haven't let the heat slow us down though - as you can see in the pictures, loads of activities today, and loads more that aren't on here (Vertical Challenge, Sports Activities, Sensory Trail to name but a few!)
After dinner was our evening activity of Cluedo, which sounds quite relaxed, but certainly wasn't!
All sticky, all sweaty, all dirty, all fine!
Please feel free to comment on the photos- we will share them with the children!

Day one of our PGL experience has ended, and what fun we had in the sweltering sunshine! A happy journey thanks to coach driver Jamie, followed by fun in the sun with cricket, football, quizzes and making our room signs. Ella, our group leader was quick to teach us the routines of PGL. First dinner down, and Honey and Lemon Roast chicken was a stand out.
All that was left was time for our after dinner activity which was Campfire. A couple of games of Chinese Whispers and time for bed! Will we all sleep soundly in the oppressive heat? Who knows..... Tomorrow we look forward to Raft Building, Vertical Challenge, Crate Challenge and Survival. So I hope everyone sleep swell!
Please excuse the poor quality of the photos, while Mr D tries to figure out how to connect his laptop to the wireless. But please also feel free to comment on the photos - the children would love to hear your feedback!
CPR Training - a visit from the the Watford Fire Brigade
Today we were visited by several member of the Watford Fire Brigade. They taught us all about how to administer CPR to adults. We all learnt so much - a vital life skill for us all!
Well done everyone in Assembly this week! You made us all so proud of you! Here are a couple of video clips that we used..
First Day Back! Time for Science!
In Science today, we looked at light and shadows. We conducted an experiment proving that light can only travel in a straight line. Lining up three hole-punched pieces of card held up by a bulldog clip, we shone a torch through the holes.
The result was that the beam of light shone straight through, and ended its trail on the piece of un-punched card at the end.
