Isle of Wight – day 5

We enjoyed exploring Carisbrooke castle today before catching our ferry home. Well done Year 6 – you have been a brilliant class to take to the IOW 😊

Thank you parents for welcoming us back so enthusiastically.  It was a lovely way to arrive back! I hope you enjoy hearing about our adventures first hand and everybody catches up on their sleep! A few photos from our final day are above.

(We have a few items of unclaimed clothing – found in the rooms the boys were sleeping in – please come and claim them next week if you think they are yours.)

Isle of Wight – day 4

Hurray! We completed our 10 mile walk challenge today.  Everybody did brilliantly and we are really proud of everyone for their resilience and perseverance as it was a hilly walk! We had great views and it was lovely to see so many children encouraging and helping their friends along. Well done Year 6. The teachers are really proud of you 😊. We also had many lovely comments from members of the public about how well behaved and polite Wellow children are which was wonderful to hear.  We have a campfire to look forward to tonight before we make our way home tomorrow.

Isle of Wight – day 3

We have had another glorious sunny day and had a great time visiting Osborne House where we explored the house, had lunch at the beach and visited Swiss Cottage.  When we got back to the centre we headed straight down to the beach for some rockpooling.  Lots of crabs, shrimps and fish were found. We are about to go swimming and have our evening games. A few photos from today are below.

Isle of Wight – day 2

Despite feeling a little tired today, we have explored the village and learnt about some of the history and people linked to Bonchurch. We’ve also learnt about smugglers, played lots of team games and seen sea defences and the effects of erosion at the beach.

Year 6 are currently enjoying some adventures in the woods before our evening activities.  Some of our photos from today are below.

Isle of Wight – day 1

We have arrived safely. Our ferry crossing was calm and we had great views from the Open Top Bus. We explored the Needles Battery and all went on the chair lift.  After a delicious dinner and swimming in the pool, we have been down to the beach and explored the woods by torchlight. We are looking forward to a good sleep and more adventures tomorrow.  A few photos from day 1 are below.
