“I would walk 500 miles ...” (not quite!)
Well the morning brought well rested children! All went to sleep brilliantly and slept well, meaning that we could really embrace today’s challenge of a serious hike that was navigated by the children. They learnt to read Ordinance Survey maps and to use a compass to lead us through the amazing countryside surrounding Braeside. The children were in good spirits throughout- we were out from 10.30 am- 5.30pm! They also enjoyed learning some incredible history of The Battle of Roundway Down. Dinner was shepherd’s pie and lemon crunch (some children had thirds!) and they are now enjoying the grounds of this spectacular place before we start our evening challenge.
We have had a fabulous first day! Serious 3 hours of paddling... and one accidental capsize from Miss Sealey’s boat! All occupants were laughing and were quickly joined by the rest of their classmates. All dry and eaten a hearty tea of roast pork and crumble. They have enjoyed exploring the grounds by torchlight, participating in an orienteering challenge. Perfect children ... so far!
