Hilltop Saturday

Day two just flew!

After a successful nights sleep, the children were all up and dressed by 7am and then in for an 8 o'clock breakfast of cereal, toast and scrambled eggs with bacon and waffles. In the morning Group 2 did the crate stacking and archery whilst Group 1 successfully got their fires going in the bush craft activity despite the rather heavy downpour overnight. We were then more than ready for lunch.

Then out again for our afternoon activities. Group 2 headed for the climbing wall and Mrs Butcher and Mrs Mayhew were extremely impressed with how supportive the children were, encouraging to each other to push themselves to achieve their best. Meanwhile Group 1 had their turn on the Big Zipper - Mrs Cutting's favourite. They worked together so well that everybody got two flights before setting off for the Activity Trail and Assault Course, where the children got incredibly wet and muddy! Luckily there was time for a quick swim before dinner. 

In the evening we had a hike down to Sheringham, to the beach, where the children built stone castles or played "jumping out of the way of the waves to avoid getting soaked" game. Then there was time for an ice-cream before the walk back, followed by story-time in the dark and hot chocolate and bed.

Another great day.
