MONDAY

We have all arrived safe and well in Ghyll Head! As soon as we got here, children were given time to make their beds and unpack before we went out for the afternoon activities. Two groups of children went for a walk around the local area and enjoyed seeing the cows and the sheep! One group went Ghyll scrambling and really loved jumping into the river at the end (even though it was cold!) and the final group climbed up Gummer's How and back down. We all then had a delicious meal of fish and chips and completed the nightline walk in the dark and the rain! We had a great time! The children will be keeping you updated on the rest of their activities this week! Keep your eyes peeled and we will keep you posted! Mrs Walsh

TUESDAY

Ruby-Jean:

I did climbing up a mountain and zip lining. I loved it! My favourite part was when I went up the really tall tower and jumped off. I have also done canoeing. I loved when I jumped in the lake. It was very cold but I got used to it. Miss you mummy, very much. 

 

Diego:

Today we went in caves. I really enjoyed climbing through the small parts. Yesterday I like when we went hiking.

 

Natalia:

I enjoyed the zip line a lot and when we did the scavenger hunt. I had lots of fun on the lake. We did a lot of jumping in at the lake. We had so much fun.

 

Pa:

Today I had so much fun! We did zip-line and I tried really hard to jump off, but I couldn't. We did canoeing - it was really fun. We went to the other side of Lake Windermere and we went exploring to find some things that looked like creatures or animals. We were doing some races to get balls and points.

 

Muminah: 

I did caving and it was good. My favourite part was when we went to the second cave and the water was very deep - it came into my boots! I'm having a very nice time but I miss you a lot mum and dad.

 

Jennifer K:

I went caving and it was beautiful. After we went in the second cave, there was a waterfall and the water went in my boots. The first cave wasn't as deep so I thought the second cave was the best. I love you mum and dad

 

Logan:

Today I loved doing the zip lining and when we went canoeing I had so much fun. I loved it when we did the scavenger hunt and my favourite part was doing the zip lining although it was scary at first.

 

David L:

Today I enjoyed going caving. The best bit was when I had to try and fit in the small gaps! Yesterday I enjoyed getting scared whilst doing the nightline. 

 

Holly:

Today I went on the zip line and I was really scared, but when I got up, I got used to it. I tried getting the money in the envelope but it was really hard. After that, we went canoeing. First we went all the way to an island and we had a race back to the house. We got to jump in which was really fun, but the water was really really cold! 

 

Leighton:

Today we went canoeing in Lake Windermere and my favourite bit was jumping into the lake at the end. Yesterday we climbed a mountain and it was really fun! 

 

Olivia:

Today I went caving and it was very fun. I got soaked by all the river water and slipped a couple of times on the rocks under the water. We went in 2 caves and we had a challenge where we had to turn our lights off - it was pitch black! I had a fun time. My favourite part was seeing the crystals on the cave walls and seeing them shining in the dark.

 

Kyus:

Today we went canoeing at the start of the day. After we went canoeing we got to swim in the lake. The water was FREEZING but most of us still jumped off the jetty into the lake. Then, we went ziplining and almost all of us managed to jump off. It was so fun that I kept asking for another go, but we had to go.

 

Lacey:

Today I went canoeing and we did races. We split into 2 groups and we did who could row the fastest. We went near an island and we made a fire, and we put holly and leaves on it and it made lots of smoke. Yesterday we did the nightline.

 

Zaideen:

Today I went on a very high zip line. At first I was scared, but when I jumped down it was really fun. We went canoeing and we had to go from island to island. When we got back we all jumped in the lake! 

 

Matthew:

Today we went exploring in massive caves and I nearly broke my torch by bumping my head! My favourite bit was when we went in the second cave which had water everywhere!

Paige:

Today I went on a ginormous zip-line and I also did canoeing and collected balls on the lake. We went across to the other side of the lake. I enjoyed it.

Andrew:

Today I had a really fun day. We went to a cave in Yorkshire and we went into two different caves. The first one was really great and the second one was amazing, but it had a lot of water! My favourite part was when everybody went into the second cave. We turned our torches off in the caves and we tried to touch our hands together when we couldn't see them!

Dominique:

Today it was a really fun day and we all had fun on the zip wire and it was a really really big one. We went across the lake and we had lots of fun. 

 

Ahmad:

Today I conquered my fears and did the unimaginable! We went to a cave in Yorkshire and explored them. I crawled through the cave system and through tight spaces, even though it scared me. My favourite bit was ducking down to go to the next section.

Jennifer L:

Today I enjoyed the zip line and the scavenger hunt and I liked when we went to the Ghyll yesterday and swam in it. My favourite thing so far was the zip line.

WEDNESDAY

Zarghona:

We went down to the boat house today and we had a lot of fun going across the lake on canoes to a different place that we hadn't been to before. When we got back, we got to jump in the cold water, even though it was very cold! After that, we got back and had our lunch, then we went out to do an obstacle course. After that, we had to go on a really high rock climbing wall. It was very fun climbing it, but when you wanted to come down, your friends would let you come down. My favourite part was the canoeing where we could race and see fish in the lake.

 

Sandra:

Today I went down the zip line even though I was scared. I tripped off the top because it was too tight and flew down! It was really fun, even though it felt like I was going to fall. This was my favourite thing about today. We went on the zip line yesterday as well. 

 

Macie:

Today we went rock climbing on the beach and half way there, I fell. When we got to the top we had a great view of the ocean and the sand. I was so excited to get to the top of the hill.

 

Mehran:

Today we did rock climbing and yesterday we went to the Tuck Shop. I bought a water bottle and hopefully tomorrow I will buy some sweets.

 

Erin:

Today we did rock climbing and we did the low ropes course - there was a mini zip line on there. Yesterday we went into the caves and it was fun. 

Maaria:

Today we went on the mini ropes course and we had 20 lives and we had to try not to lose all those lives by touching the floor. I didn't like the ones where you had to walk on the ropes. My favourite part of the mini course was the mini zip line at the end. Then we went rock climbing at the beach and I wasn't very good at it, but I tried my hardest. Yesterday, we went caving and I fell down a few times. Then we went into another cave which was filled with water up to our knees and it was very fun. 

Matthew:

Today we climbed up a massive wall with ropes attached to us - I fell off multiple times! We went to the beach afterwards in a mini van and we did some actual rock climbing on actual rocks. We went inside a cow barn. My favourite thing was when we went down a natural slide inside a cave - it was trippy because I thought I was upside down. 

Shelly:

Today I enjoyed doing the rock climbing and I think it was really fun because I got to the top of the wall and I like climbing so it was really good. The canoeing was really fun because I had never tried it before and I got to do it today so it was really fun. I enjoyed jumping in at the end because I like jumping in water.

Marshall:

Today we went rock climbing. I enjoyed it because I am scared of heights and I went higher than I thought I would. We also went canoeing - my favourite part was when we could jump in and we made Mrs Walsh jump in, even though she thought it was too cold!

Lois:

Today I went on the zip line and I screamed my head off! I went on it twice today and yesterday I went on it once. My favourite thing about

today was the low ropes course and I nearly split my pants from doing the splits!

Rea:

Today we went canoeing and I felt a bit sick because the waves were very bumpy. We went on a mini zip wire and it was very fun. There was a mini obstacle course with that too. After that, we went rock climbing and it was very fun and tiring at the same time. My favourite thing was the rock climbing.

Uzoka:

Today I went and did an obstacle course without touching the floor. Afterwards, I fell flat on the floor! We went canoeing and at the end, we jumped in the lake - it was absolutely freezing! We also did rock climbing - I went to the top 3 times. It was awesome!

Ayesha:

Today I went on the mountain and had some lunch. Then, I climbed across a cliff and my favourite bit about today was when we got to throw some quick sand at each other and find some seashells and walk across the lake.

Remas:

Today we went canoeing and the water was really cold. I jumped in 3 times and it was really fun! We went rock climbing and that was really fun too. We went on a mini zip wire and my favourite part was the mini zip wire.

Mason:

Today we did a little bit of zip lining and we did a low ropes obstacle course without touching the floor - me and Zaideen did it twice without touching the floor. We did a little bit of rock climbing. My favourite bit was zip lining.

Tosin:

Today I went rock climbing and we went in quick sand and we also talked about how the rocks were made of limestone and how the tide comes in. Then we started throwing mud at each other. My favourite part was when we climbed the mountains.

David K:

Today we went on the zip wire for a little while. After that, we went on the mini obstacle course and if we fell on the floor, we lost. I made it all the way to the end. My favourite part about that was the mini zip wire. After that, we went rock climbing and I made it to the top 10 times!

Ellie-Lee:

Today we went on a mini obstacle course with a mini zip wire and we did some rock climbing and then after that we went on the coach to a place with real rock climbing. Then, we climbed up the rocks. My favourite bit was the mini zip wire.

Corey:

Today we went on an obstacle course and my favourite part about it was the mini zip line. We went canoeing and we all jumped in the lake afterwards. After that, we went rock climbing and my favourite part of that was when we abseiled back down. My favourite thing was rock climbing.

Ayomide:

Today I went on the zip wire again and then we went on a playground and we had to work as pairs and support our partners to get around without touching the floor. Then we went rock climbing and my favourite part was the zip wire.

GHYLL HEAD'S GOT TALENT!!

THURSDAY

Olivia:

We went scrambling over rocks at Humphrey's Head and it was really hard trying not to slip. After that, we went rock climbing and zip wiring. I had finished the climbing and I jumped off the 10metre zip wire, even though I was scared!

 Corey:

Today we went zip lining and rock climbing. The best part was the zip lining. We did scrambling as well - I got to the end without falling off.

Ayomide:

Today we went caving and climbed a waterfall. The best part of the day was climbing up the waterfall.

 

Matthew:

Today we went zip lining and rock climbing - I felt like I was going to fall off the top of the tower. Everytime I tried to get to the top of the wall, I kept on falling! 

Muminah:

Today we went rock climbing and zip lining. It was fun and zip lining was the best part. Rock climbing was a little bit hard.

Logan:

We went on a walk with no adults to support us, and we had to make it to a bench with an amazing view at the top with only pictures for directions. In the afternoon, we made a shelter out of ropes, a tarp and some sticks. My team had the best shelter - we had a play area out the front and a chair in the middle.

Zaideen:

Today we went into a very dark cave. We had a team and we had to make it to the end of the cave without the adults and with no torches on. We went in a river to do climbing and we were getting splashed by the waterfalls. We had to climb lots of rocks to make it to the top.
