It has been a fantastic first day here at Hooke Court. Following a trouble free coach ride we arrived and had snack! Found our rooms, unpacked our bags and explored the wonderful grounds.
Lunch was next on the agenda to ensure we had enough energy for our afternoon of low ropes course, orienteering and shelter building in the woods! Our teamwork skills shone through with everyone communicating well and sharing support and ideas on how to improve their skills on the low ropes and shelter building.
This extended in to the evening where there were more problem solving activities inside the main house. It got quite hot whilst everyone was scratching their heads to solve the problems set.
The children had a long day, with some making it last past midnight, though this morning they were less happy to wake up! Breakfast has been served and they are getting ready to travel back in time and become Anglo Saxons for the day!
Will report more later...
