Year 5 Residential to Swanage
Tuesday 7th – Friday 10th May
The children were very excited this morning and set off aboard the very lovely coach(!) on their way. They arrived at Corfe Castle in time for lunch and some games! The sun is still shining (just) and they have met their group leaders from the centre in Swanage who will be with them for the rest of the week. Any tears from this morning are long forgotten (the children’s anyway!) and lunches are being quickly consumed!
Lots of fun at Corfe Castle and then the steam train from Corfe to Swanage – that’s the way to travel!
Everyone slept well and enjoyed what has been described as a huge breakfast! All set up for the day!
As yet no rain but quite breezy at Durlston Country Park!
Durlston was excellent and we ended up with ice cream on the beach and no rain!
Lots of excitement!
Another big breakfast – sadly Mr Lewin missed out! Then it was off over the hills to Old Harry’s Rock and on to the beach at Studland. Mr Lewin’s fitbit recorded over 11km across the day and taking account of the fact that he walked in as straight a line as possible and sat down at every opportunity the children must have done a lot more! The rain held off but it was quite breezy and not the warmest beach day! It was, however, GREAT fun and the children were all having an excellent time, almost as much as the staff! There was ice-cream and sandcastles so all was well!
The sun is shining! The sky is blue!
Sandcastles on the beach and then lunch and the drive home – see you later!
