UKSA 2018 - Day 1 - Headteacher's Log
After a smooth journey to Gunwharf Quays 'Team Green' boarded the Jenny Boat to UKSA Central! The boat trip across the Solent and down the Medina to UKSA took just under an hour in the glorious sunshine and was made more entertaining with the sight of a Spitfire 'fly-by'. On arrival the children were taken through an orienteering exercise familiarising themselves with what will be home for the next 4 nights! And before you could say 'Ellen MacArthur' the children were in wet suits, buoyancy aids, safety helmets, wet shoes and on the water taking part in team games and pontoon jumps!
Bed making was next on the agenda which proved to be one of the most entertaining parts of the day for the staff!! EVENTUALLY beds were made, bags unpacked and toiletries aligned! It was then time for dinner and evening activities consisting of Human Board Games.
Tomorrow will sure to be a fun filled day with the children's first full day of activities!
UKSA 2018 - Day 2 - Headteacher's Log
After a good nights sleep by...most, the children were up for an early hearty breakfast to energise them for the day ahead. The children put their orienteering skills to the test first of all and had to solve a number of riddles including:
True story: A white horse jumped over a tower and landed on a priest who then disappeared, explain how this was possible...
The day activities finished with 'Wet Games' including 'Over/Under', 'Pontoon Hoops', 'Gladiator Duel' and 'Tightrope'.
Once out of wet suits, the children were then in to dinner where, once again, UKSA staff commented on how polite and courteous our school were when being served!!
Finally, to finish off an exhausting and fun-packed day, the children took part in crabbing and the famous 'Egg Drop' activity.
Tomorrow promises to be another 'cracking' day!
