The last 2 days have been so jam packed that it has gone in a flash, but the fun has not stopped here on the Isle of Wight! Sadly the weather has not been our friend however we have battled through with our shorts, rain coats and happy hearts.
A trip to Robin Hill Country park was the first port of call where we found our stomachs in our mouths after no less that 3 goes (IN A ROW!) on the colossus swinging ship (Mrs Voigt and Miss Lees managing 1 go before realising age was not on their side!) Most lost their voices with all the screaming and some children were even brave enough to let go of the bars!!
After an impressive falconry show, a hill rolling competition and another stomach in mouth moment at the 4D cinema we had lunch on a wet and windy hill surrounded by some feathered friends (white doves, peacocks and peahens including an albino peacock that Mrs Turner secretly hoped would sneak into her bag and home with her!)
Next came some canopy tree walks and squirrel runs through an array of crazy climbing equipment in the forest. Filled with seaside air and muddy knees we headed for dinner and onto our evening entertainment.
Bowling was the order of the evening. Some children confidently taking to the lanes and others discovering they had never bowled before, but all gave it a good go even if some of the techniques were very questionable!!
Some very lucky strikes meant Benedetta, Teagan, and Katie C won a prize and we finished off our fun filled evening with some singing and comedy compering on the coach where Mrs Turner discovered a microphone (much to the teacher and driver’s dismay!)
Our last day on the island began at ‘Amazon world’. Flying, howling, scratching and jumping creatures both big and small awaited us. The highlight being a sneaky lemur who decided Aaron’s head was a good look out post. He played it so cool even the keeper was impressed!
