Thank you so much for all the lovely comments – your children are really enjoying hearing them. Apologies if you have not seen pictures of your child – we are trying to get everyone on but the connection is a little hit and miss!
The children (and staff) all slept like logs last night and we even had to wake some children up this morning! A more chilled out day today planned – a walk with a treasure hunt down to Troutbeck, a picnic lunch and then fun in the woods this afternoon.

Year 6 problem solving – working out how to get the rubbish in the bin… We’ll say no more on that one!!
Sun cream, sun glasses, hats and ice creams were the order of the day! We awoke to the sun breaking through the cloud which soon cleared to give us a glorious day in the sunshine. The children have been exceptionally well behaved today which was even commented on by members of the public!!Before we set out to walk the 4 miles to Brockhole:
- Heigh ho heigh ho it’s off to Brockhole we go!!
- Are you serious? Youe really expect US to walk up THERE??!!
- But all agreed the view from the top was worth it.
- An encounter with a “bunch” of sheep – the shepherd’s words not ours!!
Before walking home
Is this Lake Windermere?
Couldn’t resist these quotes from the children! No names but parents can you recognise your child in these?
Is this a steep hill?
Are we there yet?
Oh is that a real flower? I thought it was just for decoration…
Oh look they’ve had a haircut!
A tired but happy bunch arrive back at the hostel.
The children are really enjoying hearing your comments on the blog. We hope you enjoy the pictures. The internet connection is very slow – it has taken us 2 hours to upload these so apologies if you don’t get as many tomorrow.
Mrs Nixon, Miss Walker, Mrs Kendal and all!!
A lie in until 7am followed by a hearty 3 course breakfast with a view overlooking the view. Life doesn’t get much better than this!
All the children (and adults) slept well and are looking forward to a walk to Brockhole in the sun…(fingers crossed).
Miss Walker and Mrs Nixon
Just to let you all know that they have arrived safely at the Youth Hostel after having an absolutely fantastic day at Rookin House. I am reliably informed by Mrs Nixon that they will be updating the blog and adding some photos in the next couple of hours.
Hi blog readers, today was an exceptional day due to the variety of activities from quizzes to long walks roaming around Windermere. Luckily, The BBC weather forecasters were wrong (not a coincidence!) and we stayed dry! Hurrah.
As the weather was sunny we ventured on a long walk to Troutbeck village in search of the Post-Office, which had changed into a community store. Unfortunately only half of us were able to buy ice-creams (yes it was that dry) as the shop was only open until 12.30. That wasn’t the only surprise. Later in an unknown field in the Cumbrian highlands Mrs Robinson went on an unexpected trip, involving grass, water and sheep poo!
After lunch we painted the phenomenal view from the youth hostel which ranged from the mountains to the lake to a baby deer grazing happily. Shortly after as young Sherlock Holmes’ we completed a quiz which led us to treasure – chocolate!
Tonight we’re swapping our sweaty walking boots to our party clothes and we’re going to dance the night away at our disco!
Hopefully tomorrow won’t be too fishy! Goodnight to all readers see you tomorrow.

Hi folks, it’s us again but today writing it’s Holly, Rhiannon and Savannah.
Waking up this morning, we looked out of the window to see that it was not what we hoped. It was POURING IT DOWN! However, later it changed and became SUNNY.
Enthusiastically, dressed in our water proofs, we stepped outside to see our surroundings.
Despite the weather, it is a beautiful and a wonderful place to look at. We set off on our walk…
Striding out , Mrs Robinson led the way. Hurrying to catch up, we trotted along and finally reached our destination . At Brockhole , everyone enjoyed playing on the adventure play ground .
We had a lovely tea.
Missing you but having lots of fun.
Goodnight from year 6.xxxx
p.s. Mrs Farrar claims to have seen camels. But did she imagine them?
