Year 6 Residential Day 2

All in bed and quiet by 10..... but extremely early start, some tents awake by 4am! Camp Leader had words!!! Breakfast of sausage, hash brown, beans and bread....lots of wood collecting for the fires! Now, we're doing Wilderness First Aid!!

It was very cold in the tents last night, we're all wet, muddy and cold! Spirits are high though!!

 

Weather is not cooperating!!! Too windy to move off site so we've made camp bracelets using macrame, we've whittled our own tent pegs using very sharp knives( lots of hovering by Mrs M!!)!

Made our own individual pizzas for lunch which were cooked in the pizza oven!

Tent time while the wind was a little high then out for building campfires, campfire games and songs, roasting marshmallows and then Mr D learned how to prepare a whole salmon! 
Dinner was pan fried salmon, noodles and stir fried vegetables!

Due to the high winds, we had to evacuate our woodland site and move to an open field! The children were brilliant, packing, carrying their stuff and setting up for the night. 
Mrs M was prowling and their wasn't a sound after ten o'clock except for the howling wind! Mrs W lost her tent's fly sheet in the middle of the night!!
