Learning Together, Achieving Forever

Avon Tyrrell - Day 2

The children settled really well last night and slept brilliantly after enjoying an exciting night walk yesterday evening. They have all been incredibly respectful of one another and very understanding of how important sleep is to ensure that everyone is feeling their very best. 


To launch day two, the children energised themselves with delicious pancakes, berries, maple syrup or chocolate sauce! We then enjoyed a jam-packed day full of activities, including: climbing and abseiling, mountain biking, orienteering and mini beasts. All of the adults have been blown away by the sheer grit, determination and courage that the children have displayed throughout the day. Some children even confronted their fears and despite feeling nervous, truly gave their all to each activity. We have honestly been so impressed with all of the children and can see the Great Binfields values shining through in their attitudes and behaviours, despite it being quite cold and muddy. Cooperation, resilience, creativity in their problem solving and aspiration to succeed have been in abundance over the past few days. It has been so wonderful to see the children working together so beautifully. The respect and kindness the children have shown each other reflect the same values being taught at school during our Anti-bullying week. We will continue to ensure these messages are being encouraged throughout the week. Miss Lyddon popped in to surprise the children and got to see these values in action. The children were so keen to show off their skills in the different activities to her.


This evening, the other half of the children are setting off on their night walk and are wrapped up for the cold, whilst the others have a shower and get in their pjs, ready for a film and bedtime.


Here are some reviews of the day:

“I LOVED the climbing wall and abseiling to the bottom. I felt a bit nervous but ending up on the hardest course and reaching the top was my proudest moment today.” Thomas


“I was so proud that I was able to scramble to the top of the climbing wall. I was really looking forward to it and it lived up to my expectations.” Poppy R.


“After a busy day, I refilled with a yummy roast chicken dinner. I like that we have lots of different options if there isn’t something we love.” Dylan.


“I had fun mountain biking today BUT I did end up landing in the mud after a slippery bit, even with some help from my friends!” Maddie.
