I just wanted to say what a wonderful time was had by all at Grendon. The children did many new and exciting activities and rose to the challenge so well. Being blindfolded to complete the obstacle course on the night line activity was a little scary for some but most of them soon got into their stride and enjoyed it. Archery was brilliant and took place in some welcome shade. They used real arrows with many of them hitting the target and Blue even scoring a bulls-eye! I won’t mention the fact that Emma beat both myself and Mrs Dumont!
We played a lot of football and games of hide and seek in the walled garden. Myself, Mrs Whitehouse and Mrs Dumont took a step back at times to marvel in the children’s ability to solve problems, play together without adult support and congratulate others on their achievements. We were very proud of them and it was a privilege to be with them.
I hope they all had a decent sleep last night, I have to admit to feeling a little more human than I did on return to school yesterday!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Monday morning.
