The day started bright and early. The girls were awake nice and early but little movement from the boys room so they had to be woken! We had a delicious breakfast of cereal, toast and scrambled eggs. The first activity was abseiling. Some of us were rather nervous but we were all determined to conquer our fears and have a go. We gave each other lots of encouragement which helped us a lot. Grass sledging followed this which was brilliant! We quickly worked out which sledge would give us the fastest and furthest ride. The stream walk was great and involved getting very muddy and wet as 'warriors of the forest'. Thank goodness we had old clothes and wellies! We were given a hose down afterwards and were very glad that the weather was warm and sunny. Finally we tried the archery. This required lots of listening and following the instructions really closely. It was really good and some of us would like to try it as a club please....
After a delicious dinner we enjoyed a trip to the local Kilve beach to look at rock pools and perhaps find fossils. It was such a lovely evening and the perfect way to unwind after a long day of activities. We stayed for about an hour. Feeling weary we headed back to site and our rooms, ready to have a great nights sleep in readiness for our final day. We are looking forward to out walk to the Quantock hills and then our return jouney back to school.
See you all tomorrow,
Kilve Court 2018
We had a smooth journey to Kilve this morning - even though we missed the turning and had to turn around! On arrival we made our beds and unpacked. Then we had time to relax and get ourselves ready for the team building activites.
After a relaxed lunch on the lawn, opposite the beautiful house, we took part in some team building activities. Our instructor was called Ian and he was very impressed with our team building skills. He commented that the crate activity that we completed was the best he has seen this year. After that we had some yummy cake and squash before returning to our rooms to eat our own body weight in sweets.
We had a delicious dinner sat together with our friends. After that we got ourselves ready to be zombies in the maze.
We are having a really good time and are looking forward to a fun packed day tomorrow.
