A fantastic day at the Pepper pot  including inspired story telling followed by a fun filled afternoon at Black Gang Chine. The slides on the snakes and ladders  were a real highlight! Smuggling tonight for the children staying at Chester Lodge and an evening on the beach for the children staying at Malvern Hotel.

Thursday AM Update. Children had a brilliant evening on the beach yesterday - lots of fun digging holes, paddling, making sand sculptures and playing football, rugby, volleyball and cricket.. 

Thursday PM Update. I enjoyed a lovely day on the Isle of Wight with Year Six. It was good to see them all so happy and relaxed. The behaviour of both groups was excellent and they demonstrated very good knowledge of the solar system during the visit to the planetarium. - Mrs Brown

Mr Kemp has told us the children have had an amazing day to Alum Bay today with a lovely boat trip to the Needles and fascinating glass blowing demonstration. They enjoyed an excellent walk over Tennyson Down and fun filled rock pooling at Freshwater. The weather has been fantastic and the children are now looking forward to their disco later tonight.

Friday AM Update. Mr Kemp has said children had a lively and enjoyable disco last night (2 hours of dancing for some!) and are looking forward to going to Carisbrooke castle before heading home this afternoon.
