Good Morning Year 5 Parents/ Carers,

I have heard from both Mr Twyman and Mrs Saunders this morning. The signal and the wifi connection is quite poor at the moment due to weather so they will do their best to keep me updated with emails and texts during the day. Unfortunately they won’t be able to blog yet but they will do their best to send me some pictures if they can.

The journey yesterday went really well and they all arrived at Ullswater at around 2.30 pm.

They all then went on a tour around the site then had a kit fitting session. The children were all then set the task of making their own beds. The outward Bound staff then went through the week objectives with the children.

One group yesterday went down to the lake and were in up to their knees, the other groups did team building games.

The weather is quite cold and there is snow on the mountains. All the children slept really well and settled quite quickly after a long day.

Tuesday morning.

All up and raring to go the food apparently is amazing. It is snowing this morning. All groups are doing different activities today including igloo building, hill climbing, exploration and Mrs Saunders group are starting with a waterfall water walk and then a tree trapeze. Everyone is really happy.

I will of course update you as soon as I have more information.

Kind regards

Ms V Sengupta
