Friday 4 November – Camp Day 5

We have all returned safely from camp! What a fantastic week.

We were all a little tired this morning and everyone had to be woken up! After breakfast we enjoyed mountain biking and the tree climb. Then it was time to get packed to come home.

Before the bus arrived we had mushroom soup and sandwiches for lunch, then it was time to go.

We have all really enjoyed the week- our thanks go to Mrs Jeffrey, Mrs Fraser and PC Jones.

Thursday 3 November – Camp Day 4 Part 2

We have had a fantastic afternoon! We enjoyed the cat walk and the climbing wall. For dinner tonight, we had the choice of vegetable lasagne, chicken strips or turkey. Pudding was doughnuts and ice-cream.

After dinner we played some games and then it was time to get ready for the disco! Gavin has just arrived to collect us and we are heading off (with our glow sticks – thanks Mrs Jeffrey and PC Jones) to join children from the other schools in the grand hall for the disco. It will be great fun!

We are looking forward to mountain biking and the tree climb tomorrow morning before heading home.

Wednesday 2 November – Camp Day 3

We have had another great day at camp and enjoyed a visit from Mrs Imrie and Ms Beteta.

Breakfast today included a choice of porridge or scrambled eggs and sausages. For lunch we had baked potatoes. Dinner included the choice of pork chops, vegetable curry, beef stroganoff  or sausage casserole followed by a jam doughnut.

This morning we went orienteering and undertook the vertical challenge! The vertical challenge was quite high, but we all gave it a try.

This afternoon we all tried the sequoia scramble, including all the adults – PC Jones and Ms Beteta made it to the top and rang the bell! We also had a turn at abseiling. After our activities we had a balloon challenge to complete with Gavin (our Groupie).

After diner we completed today’s diary entry with the adults from school. Here are some of our thoughts:-

Mrs Jefffrey: It is non stop action! I loved the zip wire.

It was then time for Mrs Imrie and Ms Beteta to go and for us to get ready for our evening entertainment – a game of Cluedo.

We are looking forward to Mr Morrison visiting tomorrow morning and trying the challenge course with us.

Here are some photos of us today!

Tuesday 1 November – Camp Day 2

We have had a great day at camp!

We all slept well last night and had big breakfast this morning. Our activities today were the Trapeze, Jacobs Ladder, Zip Wire and Problem Solving. We all thought the activities were great fun.

Lunch today included soup and sausage rolls and for dinner we had the choice of sausage and chips or fisherman’s pie. We have gone out to a campfire tonight with Gregor, our groupie.

Mrs Jeffrey, Mrs Fraser and PC Jones are really proud of us and are very impressed at how well we are all working together.

We are looking forward to seeing Mrs Imrie tomorrow when she comes to visit – we hope she will post some photos of us here tomorrow evening!

Monday 1 October – Camp Day 1

We are delighted to report that Primary Seven have arrived at camp and all the children and adults are having a good time. Here is their report so far…..

After a very quiet bus journey, we got settled in our accommodation for the week and we enjoyed exploring the camp with Gregor (our Groupie). We played some games and then it was time to complete our diaries with Mrs Jeffrey, Mrs Fraser and PC Jones.

Tea tonight was yummy – a choice of Shepherd’s Pie or curry followed by jam sponge and custard and fruit.

After tea we had some time in our dorms before going off to the inflatable dome to play some games with Gregor and children from the other schools.

We are all having a great time and looking forward to the activities tomorrow.
