Day 3

 

We slept very well and again, the majority of us needed waking up at 7 this morning.

We showered, got ready for the day and set off at 9.15am after croissants for breakfast.

 

We spent the morning at Calbourne Watermill, learning about the process of milling flour. We also looked in the history museums and fed the birds ( see out pictures!).

 

Then we were off to Alum Bay and the Needles to learn about glass making, how sweets are made, coastal erosion ( the needles) and the coloured sands found here.

 

4.30pm and we are on our way back to Winchester House for dinner then straight out again for bowling and laserquest later in Ryde.

 

6.30 bowling and laserquest fun. The photos say it all - we all had a great time!

Very tired tonight as not back until 10 pm for hot chocolate and bed.

 

No more posts (only a few Tweets) now as we are home tomorrow!

 

Plan for day : up at 7, breakfast, pack, room tidy then to Robin Hill country park for the day.  We will leave there at about 3 to go to ferry port.

 

See you soon!

 

The children have all been a pleasure to be with.  We worked out the 10 staff attending this year have completed 58 residential trips between us and this is our best ever group - well done Year 6!

 

Much more independence seen as the week has progressed:

 

How do I know what I can buy to eat at bowling? (another child answered - shall we look at this menu?)

What's the time? ( reply - Look at your watch) Oh yeah!

Wow, we've got a curved tv. We've only got a flat screen at home! (The tv was an old style deep one)

I wish we had a hair salon like this at school.

Bowling shoes are quite cool (not everyone agreed!)

Life is a fashion show.

The Isle of Wight is a good place for a holiday.
