The whole school enjoyed a tasty Christmas lunch today.Thank you so much Gemma for all your hard work – lunch was amazing!

On Thursday Revd. Sue led our special assembly in the Abbey to present our Poppy Banner.   It was a very moving time especially hearing the names of soldiers from the village who lost their lives during the wars.

Yesterday saw our second Harvest Festival in the Abbey since we re-started having our service during the school week.  It was great to see so many parents who were able to join us.  I was very proud of all the readers, who did an amazing job – well done!  A big thank you to everyone, who was able to bring some foodstuff to support the Wallingford Food Bank – I know it will be greatly appreciated.

Another good nights sleep by all – it’s definitely getting harder to get some people up in the morning!!  Another cooked breakfast and we were ready for the day!

By 10am this morning we were back on the beach playing in the sea, building sandcastles and practicing our circus skills!  The weather was so spectacular it felt like a summer holiday! Finally about 12 o’clock we headed back up to the site to add more wet sandy clothes to our washing pile, changing them for dry ones (they’ll soon be dirty too!) and headed off to problem solving games!

After lunch the activity they are very excited about  going to do Side-by-Side – this is where they get to drive Motorsport buggies around a course.  This will be followed off by a game of volleyball before dinner and a mini-Olympics this evening.

It has been fantastic to see everyone trying new activities and overcoming their fears.  Also the care and respect they have shown for each other has been superb always supporting their peers and adults throughout the week!

They should sleep well again tonight I’m sure!

So many stories to share on their return.
