9.09am
 
The children slept well.  They were up bright and early this morning and ate a hearty breakfast of hash browns and sausages at 7.05am.  I am glad to report that although it's raining in Wokingham, it is dry at Liddington.  The children are about to head out for their first activity.

A busy morning was had by all. Lots of the children went raft building and tried their hand at the Zip Wire. Others took to the climbing tower for a spot of abseiling and then completed the Sensory Trail.
 
The weather is holding and it has remained dry and mild all morning. We are trying not to be too envious as we've been reliably informed that the sun is actually trying to peep through the clouds over Swindon!
 
The children are excellent ambassadors for St Paul's and the PGL leaders and all of our staff team are extremely impressed with the behaviour and levels of team work they are seeing from our pupils.
 
They have been so supportive and encouraging of one another that everyone is pushing themselves to the limit, even giving some of the most daunting activities a go.
 
Message from Year 6 - wish you were here.

The main activities for the day are over and the children are enjoying some 'down time' before dinner. 
 
Meal times are an event in themselves. There are freshly-prepared hot or cold options available at every mealtime and a self-service salad bar for children to help themselves to as much salad as they like at lunch and dinner. Homemade soup is available most days and there is plenty of bread and fresh fruit available, as well as hot and cold drinks.
 
Today has been physically demanding and we have some very tired children who are looking forward to fuelling up in the dining hall before going off for this evening's activity.
 
The PGL group leader was very impressed by how polite and well mannered our pupils were at breakfast this morning. The canoeing activity leader for Mrs McBain's group said that she "had never known a group to listen so well to instructions and to be so sportsmanlike."
 
The children are a credit to St Paul's and we are proud of every single one of our trip goers.

After a long and busy day, lots of our lovely pupils were exhausted by the time they had completed their final activity this evening. They children have had a fabulous day and are looking forward to further adventures tomorrow.
