Thursday 10th February 2022 - Aylmerton Trip - Day 4

The children have had an extremely busy day! Following breakfast, we went to Horsey to see the seals. The beach was completely full of them! The children were amazed by this experience and we saw plenty of pups. On our way back to the coach, the children were able to explore a 'pill box' (concrete peep-holes) used during World War II. 

We left Horsey to go to Sea Palling, where we had lunch and an ice-cream. This was followed by a trip to Wroxham to explore the Norfolk Broads on boats. We went on three different boats and each child had the opportunity to steer the boat, observe the wildlife and take in the surroundings. We even saw Jamie Oliver's boat!

After this, we headed back to the Centre for dinner before going to The Reef for an evening swim. We then returned for our evening drink before the children settled in bed for the evening, in preparation for the final day tomorrow, where we will be going to Cromer.

The children have been fantastic this week and have made us all incredibly proud! They are looking forward to sharing their experiences with you tomorrow when we return. We will be back at 2:30PM.

Wednesday 9th February 2022 - Aylmerton Trip - Day 3

Another action-packed day at Aylmerton! The children have had an excellent day. After another filling breakfast, they completed pirate-themed bushcraft activities whilst dressed as pirates. These involved being shown how to make fires safely, building a water proof shelter to protect them from a monsoon (teacher's revenge), walking the plank and fleeing from a stranded boat!

After lunch, the children's activities were woodland fun and hide building. This involved them using their senses and adapting, when they weren't able to use certain senses. These included blind-folded challenges, where the children had to listen to see if they could catch who was trying to steal the keys from under their chair, following a guide rope around a course with obstacles and unfamiliar noises and detecting items that don't belong in woodland. This was then followed by hide building, where each team had to build a den that was tested to see how water proof they were (teacher's revenge part II).

After the evening meal, it was time to buy things from the shop on site before the disco started! The children settled well in their dorms and are ready for our busiest day of the week, tomorrow!

Tuesday 8th February 2022 - Aylmerton Trip - Day 2

The children have had a wonderful day. After a very filling breakfast, we stayed on site in the morning to complete different team building activities. We started by making our own soup in our groups, before making fires to cook the soup. Whilst the soup was cooking, the children completed four different activities: getting through the spider's web, escaping the lava from a volcano, the agility course and a bomb disposal activity. These required a number of skills including: following instructions, communication, co-operation and good listening. The children were then able to try their soup before receiving their scores for the activities and then had lunch.

After lunch, the competition continued and each group went on the monster trail around the Felbrigg Estate. This involved map reading skills to find a letter at each clue to then solve the anagram. On our travels, there were monsters lurking, armed with water pistols! The children thoroughly enjoyed this! We returned for the results and feedback from the instructors. The children then got ready for the evening meal, before having movie night and then settled in bed ready for another action-packed day tomorrow!

Monday 7th February 2022 - Aylmerton Trip -  Day 1

 

The children have had an excellent first day! We arrived at the Education Centre, the children went to their rooms and got themselves settled before having lunch. We then drove to Cromer before walking to West Runton looking at the effects of erosion and searching for semi-precious stones. When we arrived at West Runton, we found out about the West Runton elephant and explored the rock pools.

We then headed back to the Education Centre to finish sorting out the rooms before having pizza and wedges for the evening meal followed by jam roly poly. In the evening, we then went for a twilight safari, exploring the Felbrigg Estate. We returned to the centre for hot chocolate before bed.

The children are all very excited and have thoroughly enjoyed theirselves.

Pictures will follow tomorrow evening.
