An evening update from High Ashurst. The rain is continuing to fall but we are still having a wonderful time. The children have taken part in a host of afternoon activities and then filled up on a delicious pasta Bolognese and garlic bread! We are now doing more activities before wrapping up warm ready for a well earned, good night’s sleep.

High ropes, woodland skills, climbing wall and challenge course are all on the agenda for today.

Mr Carter has phoned and advised that Year 6 have safely arrived at High Ashurst and they are about to start their activities. All children are very happy and well!

Day 2 – Thursday at 11:50


Having a lovely time today. Up early with the birds this morning! All children really enjoyed last night’s dinner and a good breakfast this morning. We have been solving problems on the challenge courses showing excellent collaboration and teamwork, climbing high and building shelters and fires in the woodland skills. Children have been using ‘challenge by choice’ to stretch themselves as Wray Common Citizens aspiring to be the best they can be.

Looking forward to our lunch outside on the picnic benches and some more fun, challenge and learning this afternoon.

Day 2 – Thursday at 22:00


After a busy day yesterday we had a night walk and camp fire which the children enjoyed. Tonight, the children entertained us! They had the chance to put on a show, working with their team mates from their own teepee to produce a performance of their choosing. The performances were amazing and we all had lots of laughs and fun! We then had an outdoor sleeping bag story time before heading off to bed ready for the final activities tomorrow.

After the super entertainer last night, and a great night’s sleep, we had another lovely breakfast, showed our gratitude to the kitchen staff and tidied our teepees and luggage ready for later. We have now headed off for our exciting, final activities: woodland skills and high ropes climbing, feeling refreshed and ready for a challenge
