Off on our snowy walk!

We are all wrapped up and off on our walk into the snowy countryside.

The Kennet and Avon is iced over and it was great fun throwing snow and stones.

Next stop a hilltop lunch.

Thanks for all the lovely messages everyone. Keep them coming.

Maps, climbing, teamwork and…..mud!

Good evening everyone,

What an amazing day we have had today!

This afternoon we had a really exciting time tackling the ropes course. All the children impressed us with their commitment and the way they supported each other in true St Michael’s style.

After a truly scrumptious dinner (a full turkey roast followed by steamed pudding) we headed to the woods with our torches for the ‘night line’. The children had to guide a blindfolded friend around a really challenging course, climbing steep banks and scrambling under fallen tree branches in mud up to our elbows.

After a few squeals, giggles and muddy slips, we headed back to the warm house for a hot chocolate and a swift change into ‘pjs’.

Weary but full of excitement, the children retired to their bunks in anticipation of another incredible Braeside day.

All seems quiet…..so far!

Bring on tomorrow!

‘Today has been epic!!! What a place!’ Erin

‘It was just amazing! I can’t believe how cool it is here!’ Matthew and Theo

‘I can’t wait for tomorrow, I never knew it would be so much fun!’ Connor

Arrived!

We’re here!

We have already had a look around the grounds and spent the morning exploring Devizes. They had a big brew on at Wadsworths Brewery this morning and it turns out the children were not too keen on the smell.

Still we have found out some amazing things about the local area.

An exciting afternoon ahead!
