Nearly Bedtime!

Hot chocolate and a biscuit before bed after an exciting walk through the woods in the dark. We are all tired and looking forward to getting into bed .

African Drums

Having fun learning how to play the African Drums.


Flags are nearly ready!

Ruby, Ethan and Fred  - "We've enjoyed going into the tunnels and going into the jump ball pit. What brave children we are!"

 Arthur and Ben - "We liked the crispy, nice bread and sitting by the hot fire"

 All the children and staff are making the most of the soggy, wet weather!



Our flags are drying nicely while we get ready for our night time walk and African drumming session!






Cooking bread and marshmallows on an open fire...yum!


Making Flags


In our tribal teams we are designing and making our own flags!






Settling In!

Making our beds and finding our way around the site. It's raining but it's not bothering us too much. We are all eager for lunch!



We've Arrived!

 Now we need to find out where we are sleeping!

On our Way!

Children are so excited to be visiting Laches Wood today! We have already split ourselves up into 4 tribal teams: Chowanoc, Hunkpapa, Dakota and Wabanki ready for our activities!

 'We're so excited because we are going to do lots of fun activities and we are having a sleepover with our friends!' exclaimed Keira and Maisey.
