After a tearful, eventful and some would some would say comical start to our trip (exploring the local area ... on FOOT!) we have arrived safely.  The ferry crossing was relatively calm, with no travel sickness, and plenty of excitment at 'going abroad'.  

The centre is lovely, and we have all settled in well.  The evening meal was a welcome warm feast to combat the winter chill.  No rain, snow...or sun yet (although there is still time).

Urgent:  Can parents please wire some more money to the children...judging by the amount of stuff they carried from the shop, they have spent most, if not all, of their pocket money.


Postcards from Isle of Wight...

Year 2:  Mrs Dodd and Mrs Hughes hope you all have a stupendous WOW day tomorrow and wish they could be there.  Can't wait to see the pictures!

Year 3:  Miss Pattimore and Jon say hello and make sure you are all working hard.  They look forward to seeing you on Friday!


In the meantime, to keep you amused, watch the latest roundup from day 1 in video form...

Thinking of you all having fun on your first night. Hope you manage to get a few hours sleep - no doubt you'll need tonnes of energy tomorrow. It's very strange here without Bobby, although I'm quite enjoying the novelty of walking into a room and NOT being ninja kicked or light sabred! ;o). Enjoying all your updates and looking forward to seeing the vid when it uploads.
Ms Jennie Stallwood - 11 Feb 2013 - 20:59
Hi Chris,
Hope you have settled in well, and are enjoying your cabin together with your friends. Matt beat dad at pool, and has been playing on your ipad(hope you don't mind). The house is quieter without you, Matt is bored without his fighting partner !! Have a great time, hope you get to go quad biking, and make sure you share your secret stash !!!
We miss you. Love mum, dad & Matt xxx

Hi James, glad to hear you all settled. I have eaten my first dinner without you helping me.
Enjoy your first full day tomorrow. Hope you all get some sleep tonight, and the poor teachers.
Consider your iPad gone as I'm getting very good at using it for online clothes shopping. Woo hoo.
Love you big boy. Will check in daily on you all.
Mrs Kerry Hunt - 11 Feb 2013 - 21:57
Hope you all had a lovely 1st day. I was thinking about you when I saw the snow coming down today. Did you get a chance to play with the snow? As I was reading some of your persuasive writing (yes I am marking your books even though you are not at school), I came across some lovely paragraphs about your wishes to be with your friends this week. Were there any surprises? I hope you are all fast asleep at this time of night...dream on Miss Jordaan.
Miss Marianna Jordaan - 11 Feb 2013 - 22:01
