2022 Calshot Day 3!
Day 3 UPDATE!
Wednesday Lunchtime Update
We have put together a video of some of the things we have been doing today. Click on the link and it should work - hopefully!
Day three already!
Time seems to be flying by and already it is Wednesday! The pupils are still asleep and everyone settled down really quickly last night. A good night’s sleep really does make a difference during the day as we are really busy all of the time.
The forecast says overcast with a chance of some sunny spells. Had a quick look outside this morning and it is a little windier, which makes it feel colder than the last couple of days.
Yesterday was a really good day and so many children achieved things that they thought they couldn't do. This week is about challenging ourselves - not just the activities but for some being away from home, sharing bedrooms or trying new food. The weather was amazing , it was cold but lovely in the sun. 4 groups did an activity on the beach, which was really nice, where they searched for items on the two sides of the spit and compared the differences.
We had so many compliments from Calshot staff about teamwork and behaviour - it was great to hear. Before we go to bed every day we reflect on the day and talk about the activities, achievements and some of the funny moments. It is a really nice time when we all come together before heading off for showers and bed. So far the favourite activities are skiing, which we do 3 times, and climbing, which we do twice. The food at all mealtimes is being enjoyed but, so far, breakfast is the most popular!
Once again we will try and update some photographs later on this evening of some of the activities. (Check out the photos on the Day 2 folder if you didn’t see them which were added yesterday evening - they are at the bottom of the page. Sometimes the pictures don’t come out in order so don’t panic if your child looks like they are wearing the same thing - it is possible they were taken on the same day but uploaded on different days!
There are lots of different activities today including some groups skiing plus archery, initiative course, cycling in the velodrome and team swing. There are also 4 groups going in the New Forest for Darkwater Discovery, which is based on a river near here and is a great chance to get out in the local area.
Check back tonight for an update and keep an eye on social media for a few pictures during the day.
