On Saturday night, we dressed up warm and cosy to go and spend our evening around the camp fire. Our PGL Leaders, H and Tom, got us off to a fine start with some ‘tall tales’ and singing games. Then we had to pass the test of the clapping game. Our initial over-confidence was quickly shot down as we realised our coordination skills had probably been burnt out by the SATs tests! Mrs McMillan’s coordination was so far gone that she couldn’t even find the seat and ended up sprawled on the floor. Unfortunately, our budding David Bailey’s weren’t quick enough with the camera and so this moment will only live on in the memories of those who were present!! Once the laughter of the game had subsided, we got on to the serious business . . . . toasting the marshmallows. Due to ridiculous Health and Safety rules (which are clearly made by people who haven’t been looking after 43 children constantly!) the children were not allowed to toast their own, or even any for us, so we had to wait on them hand and foot!!! They were quick to put in their orders of: ‘lightly toasted please’, ‘I want mine nice and crispy’ and ‘ooo I would like a nice caramelly one’ and before we knew it they were munching away. Another song led by H and we were then on our way back to the cabins for showers, bed and . . . SLEEP!!!!
Dum diddy dum diddy . . .
Mr Pearson had clearly done this before!
I’d like a really burnt one please!!
If you go down to the woods today, be sure of a big surprise! As part of our “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” topic, Moonstones held a teddy bear’s picnic. All the children brought in their own teddy bear and we enjoyed a yummy snack in the sunshine. We talked about healthy food and we all designed placemats with fruit and vegetables on them to help us to remember what is good for us.
A huge thank goes out to all the parents who donated food for our picnic. It was a proper feast!
We cant wait to eat them!!
The children also made Teddy Bear biscuits at the end of the week which were DELICIOUS!
We all have a turn at stirring the bowl!
Even our teddies had a lovely time!
