IOW Update - Day 1

We have had a really lovely first day!  Our journey to Portsmouth was very smooth and everyone really enjoyed their visit to the aquarium, especially the rock pool workshop.  We learnt lots of amazing facts like starfish don't have blood, they have water running through their bodies!  The children then had time to play on the grass near the seafront before eating lunch.  We had a very calm ferry crossing and a number of different members of the public commented on how well the children behaved!  We then arrived at PGL to much excitement! We have played lots of games, had a site tour, done a fire drill and then the all important rooms were revealed!  The children were all excited to be spending time in their cabins with their friends.  Everyone ate a good dinner and we have all just come back from a fun camp fire.  They are currently having some time in their cabins before lights out at 10pm!  Everyone is happy and enjoying themselves.  I'll try and upload photos tomorrow but the wifi is a bit 'hit and miss'!

IOW Update - Day 2

We have had another fantastic day. The children have been brilliant and have tried their hardest to achieve their best!  We have taken part in: Orienteering, Trapeze, Aeroball, Giant Swing and Problem Solving.  For our evening entertainment, we had a Sports' Night, including Ultimate Frisbee and human ten pin bowling.

They have all cheered each other on, used good team work and screamed exceptionally loudly on the Giant Swing!  Everyone has eaten three huge meals and are now safely tucked up in bed and (touch wood!) are all asleep now (at 11pm!).  We are looking forward to another fun-filled day tomorrow where half of the children are going to the beach for kayaking!

We hope you like the photos!

IOW Update Day 3

What amazing weather!  We have had a wonderful day today!  The children all slept well last night and were ready to get going with more exciting activities this morning.  The children have taken part in a variety of sessions today and have loved them all.  35 children were lucky enough to go to the beach this afternoon for a fantastic kayaking session.  Every single child loved the kayaking and spent the whole session out of the water.  They played a variety of games and even enjoyed falling in....over and over again!  The other children are kayaking either tomorrow morning or afternoon.  We have eaten three good meals today and the children have once again, loved their evening activity.  Everyone is now asleep having had a nice time chatting to their friends before lights out.  There are now 200 photos on the website for you to enjoy!  

IOW Update - Day 4

What a busy day!  The children were all sound asleep this morning when it was 'wake up time', but soon got into the PGL spirit.  We have all done lots of activities during the day, including the remaining 41 children kayaking down at the beach.  We have had groups taking part in Survivor, where they had a go at lighting fires (under very close supervision!) and Buggy Building, which was great.  This evening all the children took part in 'Wacky Races' which was excellent fun.  After this, they had the fun task of packing...which was eventful!  I would be surprised if some of them are bringing the same set of clothes back that they came with on Monday judging by the chaos in some of the rooms (mainly the boys!).  Everyone went to sleep really quickly and are looking forward to more fun tomorrow.  All the children have been amazing and have really challenged themselves.  They are all excited to tell you all about it when they are home. We will see you in the school hall at 5pm unless you receive a text from us.
