Phassell Wood Residential Update - Thu 11 Jun 2015

Wednesday 10th June 2015

10:00am - The children arrived earlier than scheduled. Unpacked and started the day with a Scavenge Hunt. All children were deployed into groups, then sent out looking for wildlife and plants.

1:30pm - After lunch was over, the children went into their groups and got cracking on building their own Den's for the evening. At present the children are learning how to filter dirty water into drinking water using various filters and natural resources. 

3.30pm - The afternoon was packed full of adventure. Using Toboggan carts, they rushed down the 30ft slide. As the afternoon drawn to a close the children settled then collectively learnt how to make fire using sticks and stone, then later barbecued marshmallows over the hot flames. Survival skills at it's best!

3.25pm - The day started off nice and early, extremely excited! After a huge breakfast, we had an opportunity to gather our thoughts and have some free-time amongst ourselves before activities commenced. The sun was out, the weather kicked in and the children dispersed, filling up water bottles they decided to have a water fight to cool off.

Soon after, the children got working on their team building skills! They played different games, helping each other to pull their weight in order to succeed. Well Done! That's how we do it at Old Palace!

After lunch, we got digging, building our own pot holes/ trenches, while a group of children went abseiling. Others soaked sunshine! Mr Palmer will be joining the children soon and at present the children are relaxing and enjoying an ice-cream.
