Update from Miss Jennings:


The children have settled into their rooms for the night after a long day. They learnt how to make a camp fire using flint and steel and cooked bread twists and marshmallows over the fire. For our last activities tonight Group 1  played kurling and skittles Group 2 had archery and group 3 got to go on the land zorbs.
