Thursday 17th October
Today was our last full day and what fun we've had.The weather was certainly on our side again as we've had a dry, sunny day! Everyone loved their activities which were sailing, kayaking, high ropes, island adventures (including hot chocolate!) and finally two groups had their 'journey day' to Coniston and Cathedral Caves.
Tonight, we have eaten fish and chips with jelly and ice cream for desert and after, the children are going to visit the on-site shop to spend their spending money but not before the final room inspection has been carried out!!
Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed their time here at Waterpark and we are all so proud of their achievements this week! Well done to our wonderful Holme Slack children!
Wednesday 16th October
Today the sun shone and we had lots of fun! Some groups were on their journey day exploring tunnels at Cathdral Quarry while others rowed to Peel Island to make hot chocolates and then walked into the local village with lots of challenges along the way. Two groups sailed with perfect weather conditions and also tested their map skills by orienteering the grounds of Waterpark.
After a day full of activities they completed diary entries before eating a delicious roast chicken dinner, followed by fresh fruit salad.
With food in their tummy's they were ready for a game called Aliens and just before bed they all calmed down through a guided meditation.
Tomorrow is our last full day and we can't wait for more fun!

After almost 24 hours of trying to upload pictures from yesterday, we finally did it! Even without the internet, we are all having lots of fun.
Yesterday, we went kayaking, sailing and climbing. We had a tasty tea of pizza and chips, followed by jammy doughnuts and then we all went on a night time walk in to the woods where we did some star gazing!
Check back later (after 10.30pm) to hopefully see today's instalment - we are about to undertake our famous room checks before we have curry for tea and a night time activity!
