Jan 21st - We are learning about Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution. Within that, we will be looking at inheritance next week so for homework, could you complete Task 1 of the Darwin activity sheet below. Task 2 and 3 are optional. 

The children will be coming home with their "SATs BIBLE" this today. They are to decorate the front cover as they wish. 




Welcome to 2022! We hope you all had a safe and restful Christmas and are ready for the term ahead. 

Please visit the tab on What we are learning this term, to find out just that! 

Let's keep up the reading, numbergym etc and ensure your PE bags come in on a Monday and home on a Friday.

A misty final full day at Arthog. One group had a stunning end to the day as you will see below. The children have been exploring, building, splashing, canoeing and walking through clouds. I had a stowaway on my canoe, Mr Agnew enjoyed a stunning sunset and Mrs Hetherington witnessed some amazing knot tying. Here are a few pics from today's groups. We are on a nightwalk this evening to finish their legs off!

    Our evening walk was a lovely end to the week. We were sat on Fairbourne beach in the dark, torches off and listening to the waves come in.This was us making our way along the embankment. 


One last night of sleep and then one more activity in the morning and we will be on our way back. Departure is 1pm and I will message school to say we are on our way.

Day 3 Group 2 (1).JPG 

We have been Orienteering around the centre this evening, after our roast dinner! Not sure if i've mentioned the amount of food these guys are eating! They are having a whale of a time. 



The early morning ping pong was a competitive affair. Laurence tries his hardest, but he knows who the true king is! 20211116_075900.jpg 

The amount of food these children are shovelling away is fantastic... They have seconds and sometimes, thirds! 




Some of us have been in a rafting race. They had to build the vessel first. We also took a moment to appreciate some beauty in this wonderful part of the world.

The nightline was lots of fun this evening. The sheep were not impressed with our attempts to make our way around the obstacle course, blinfold and holding on to a rope. Great team work and communication again. We have some tired children this evening. It is time for bed! Goodnight 



DSC07577.JPG We arrived after a nose bleed and the sick bucket working overtime. After lunch, Team tasks on the field this afternoon. We've lost a tooth but I have been told the tooth fairy doesn't visit Arthog due to Brexit so Beau will have to wait until we get home on Friday. All good so far and we are about to do our first dorm inspection. 

Lord Randall has been surveying his subjects of the manor! Xander rolled and rolled and rolled, helmet flying! The evening activity was a very close competition but the winning team was Rory, Beth, Irie and Ana. They have received their prizes and eaten them already.

We are currently starting our conservation John Muir Award diaries and it will soon be bed time! 9.20. Day One..... Fingers crossed for a 10pm lights out! We are currently on schedule!  Here are a few more pictures from this afternoon....DSC07570.JPG
