Thank you!

Dear lovely year 6 children and your lovely mums,

I want to say a big thank you to you all for the special and thoughtful presents you gave me today. I love them all!

I so enjoyed being part of your Avon Tyrell experience and getting to know each of you even better. I loved watching you all having fun, encouraging each other and sharing new experiences together. Thank you for being such a great group – you made my job very easy!

Avon Tyrell Day 4

Another great day. After a delicious hot breakfast, all groups competed together to make the best raft to launch onto the lake.

Once we finished building, we had great fun and games with all the rafts. Our balancing skills were tested to the max- Jasper managed to fall in 6 times, Oscar and Olly twice!

Once we dried off we had a relaxing “Art in the environment” session.

This afternoon has been a mixture of zip wires, high ropes, abseiling and archery.

After a tasty dinner of spaghetti bolognese, we are now writing our  diaries before heading out for a last night campfire.

See you all tomorrow!


Avon Tyrell Day 3

Another action packed though slightly soggy day. We began with a delicious breakfast of croissants and pain au chocolats followed by our morning activities. These were  mountain biking and pioneering for one group and problem solving and zip wiring for the other.

Everyone then enjoyed pizza and potato wedges. Our afternoon activities included more biking and pioneering as well as problem solving and pond dipping.

Tonight, after a delicious roast chicken dinner the children are looking forward to the disco.

All the children have been fantastic despite torrential rain at times! They have encouraged and supported each other throughout the activities.



Avon Tyrell day 2

Another great day here at Avon Tyrell. We finished yesterday evening with a very exciting and informative night walk where the children found out about the history of the house whilst learning about light pollution and nature at night.

All children settled well and got a good night’s sleep. They ate a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausages  and beans before heading off for their activities.

Today they have experienced canoeing, low ropes, orienteering as well as some doing either shelter building or high ropes.

Once again they have impressed us with their determination and positive attitudes, their enthusiasm and energy.

We are about to head down for dinner (lasagne) before our evening activities begin.

unfortunately the internet isn’t strong enough to send photos so I will upload them at the weekend.
