All the Twos for Day Two!
Day Two in Little Canada started with the all important ‘Room Inspections!’ Today’s winners were from Room 2 from both cabins- Keishani, Nicole & Ruthmary, and then Ayobami, Darren, Ivan & Rafael! Their rooms were neat, tidy and well- organised, all before breakfast!
Following breakfast, and feeling rather full, everyone headed out to the first activities. Group 1 (Joshua A, Rafael, Isabella, George, Nathanael, Nicole, Jack, David and Ivan) began with the Giant Swing alongside Miss Soutter- who even got involved with the fun! They then moved onto Low Level Ropes Course. Well done to George and Isabella who conquered their fears on the Giant Swing- and even enjoyed it!
Group 2 (Tyler, Chibuikem, Nnamdi, Kosi, Hannah, Grace, Clodagh, Ruthmary, Frankie and Charlotte) set off first for the Low Level Ropes Course with Mr Humm. After that, they headed over to the Giant Swing. All of the children faced their fears, and enjoyed the height!
Mr Humm was very impressed by the bravery and teamwork on the giant swing today. Everyone had a go on it and each child worked as part of a team to pull the swing for the next pair to have a go on it!
Group 3 (Miguel, Darren, Isaac, Joshua M, Daniel Lo., Daniel La., Abimbola, Osayi, Masako and Ayobami) also began the morning with Low Level Ropes Course alongside Ms Oye, before moving onto attempting to climb Jacob’s Ladder. A big shout-out to Abimbola, Daniel Lo., and Daniel La., who reached the top!
Group 4 (Adam, Alyssa, Kalum, Tobias, Saphira, Edek, Maya, Nathan, Keishani and Torin) headed straight for the towering heights of Jacob’s Ladder with Miss Elston, before moving onto the Low Level Ropes Course.
After a little bit of free time, and some rain (unfortunately!) we enjoyed lunch and a trip to the Tuck Shop.
The afternoon saw Group 1 develop their skills in Fencing, before ending the day of activities with Trapeze- where they had to again face great heights. Group 2 began the afternoon with Trapeze then Fencing. Group 3 had a go at a Vertical Challenge before ending with Orienteering. Group 4 also ended with Orienteering, following a Fencing session.
Miss Allen spent the morning and afternoon darting between the different activities, and you can see a range of photos here!
Each day, the adults will choose Islanders of the Day, children who have been done something really well throughout the course of the day.
Day Two – Islanders of the Day
Ivan – Group 1 – Miss Soutter said, “He has got involved with everything, and has been very supportive of everyone when facing their fears.”
Daniel Lo. – Group 2 – Ms Oye said, “He has shown excellent perseverance and leadership, and he has been a real team player.”
Nnamdi – Group 3 – Mr Humm said, “Nnamdi is today’s Islander for facing his fear of heights when climbing the trapeze!”
Nathan- Group 4 – Miss Elston said, “Nathan has been a star today. He has really taken on board all of the safety tips, given 100% in every activity and been patient with his peers when they have found things tricky.”
Miss Allen’s Islander of the Day!
Ayobami has been super supportive of his peers in various aspects of Island Life, and he has been very helpful towards both his peers and adults. In addition to this, he has been keeping his room extremely neat and organised!
We now have a bit of free time, where the children can organise themselves before heading out to dinner, and then ‘Capture the Flag,’ later this evening. We miss everyone back in London, but we are all having a brilliant time! We will keep you posted with how we are getting on.
Ciao for now!
