Year Six Isle of Wight Trip

Journey Home Update - Friday 14th July @ 3:55pm

 Journey Home Update - Friday 14th July @ 3:55pm - The coach has just disembarked from the ferry. With a good journey home they are due back to Norhmead at 5:30pm.

Friday 14th July @ 7:45am - I enjoyed my day visiting year 6 on the Isle of wight yesterday. I explored the life boat with Miss Helgadottir`s group and went on the chair lift and took the boat trip out to the Needles with Mr Kemp`s group. I am pleased to say all of the children are happy and relaxed and they have received many positive comments from the public about their excellent behaviour. The weather was glorious, it was just like being abroad!

I left them reluctantly in the early evening to return to the main land. They went happily back to their hotels for their evening meal and to prepare for the excitement of a disco!
