We're on our way to JCA!

We're on our way to JCA! 1
We finally arrived about 3:15pm after stopping for lunch along the way. We quickly got our bags off the bus and went to our first activities. 

First afternoon’s activities - Trapeze and Archery Tag

Day 1 Update:   All enjoyed activity yesterday afternoon (as you can see from the pics). Dinner was pasta and all children enjoyed a good meal. Had film night (Matilda) last night and enjoyed some sweeties! Every child was in bed by 10:30 and most asleep. Just about to go down to breakfast-very excitable morning!

Day 2 Update


Round up of day from group 1: everyone attempted the trapeze this morning. It was quite far out so none could quite catch it. They doubted it was possible so obviously Miss Tamsett was forced to prove them wrong! Sensory trail proved very muddy much to their delight! Then we had laser quest and grid of stones. Mollie and Tyson were amazing at remembering where the lights were and they worked well as a team. Aerial trek we combined with group 2. All loved it and Mason enjoyed swinging across rather than doing the obstacles. Fear of heights conquered! Off to dinner in a bit!

Day 4 Update


It’s our last full day and the children are having great fun. They have all learned the timber dance ready for the disco tonight. We’ve just finished breakfast which included waffles! Miss Charman and Miss Cryer have been plaiting hair all morning and are now experts!!

Off to start our fun packed day...

Last morning activities

We are expected to leave JCA just after lunch to return to school. School will update you an estimated time of arrival. Be prepared for our dirty washing! See you all later!
