Stackpole 2015 Thursday 29th January

What a great day we’ve had today! Both groups experienced mountain biking in the mud through hail, rain and wind. All survived and enjoyed the experience immensely. This afternoon we completed an orienteering course and returned to a super chicken curry with rice and naan bread followed by a delicious homemade cheesecake.

This evening, after a spot of bag packing, we have been fully entertained by ‘Stackpole’s Got Talent’. Kemble did us proud!!

The children are settling now for their final sleep here. Tomorrow we will all head down to the beach for the morning for a conservation session. We plan to leave straight after lunch at about 1pm.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Stackpole Wednesday 28th January

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIMG_1191Another great day had by all – the weather has been a bit more testing: wind and rain but still sunny at times. Both groups have been climbing over at the quarry and have completed a four mile walk around the coastal path. Stunning views and a chance to play on the beach. Tonight we feasted on roast pork with all the trimmings followed by jelly and locally sourced ice cream. After an attempt at a campfire we have been playing games in the common room and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows.

Tomorrow it’s mountain biking and the much awaited Stackpole’s got talent!

Tuesday 27th January – Stackpole day 2

Another great day today – the rain held off for most of it and we even had sunshine and a beautiful rainbow. The children all slept well and woke to enjoy a filling breakfast of cereal, toast, bacon and eggs. We then set off for our activities – orienteering and conservation work. After rolls, ham, cheese and salad we all set off to the beach to do some rock pooling. We collected a range of sea creatures including 6 crabs, a pipe fish and a blenny.

This evening’s meal was jacket potato, beans and cheese. This was followed by our nightline activity in the dark – the children will fill you in I’m sure!

All settling now, shattered after a full day.


Stackpole Monday 26th January

We arrived safely to bright sunshine at about 1.30. After a delicious lunch of rolls, ham, cheese and salad all three groups set off for a walk to the beach. A great time had by all digging and rolling down the dunes. Then a two mile walk back in time for sausage and mash, green beans and gravy, followed by apple crumble and custard.

All children now quiet in their rooms! Looking forward to a another sunny day tomorrow.
