The eagerly anticipated Y5 Penpol Camp took place last week at Porthpean and what an enjoyable trip it was!
On the first day, the children (and the teachers) took part in climbing and archery before a feast of a tea – a delightful roast dinner. After a contented sleep, drifting off to the sounds of three tractors working away in the field next to us, we woke, had a full English and got on with the day.
Day 2 consisted of cycling, problem solving and a rather exhilarating high-ropes course. It was great to see children and adults push their comfort boundaries with this. In the evening, Penpol, led by dance expert Rocky, busted some moves on the dance floor at the disco before a peaceful sleep ensued.
After packing in the morning of the last day and another fine full english, it was down to the beach to take part in some paddle-boarding, kayaking or coasteering, complete with slate-made make-up!
It was a superb few days made all the better by the glorious weather and friendly experts who guided us through each activity. Thank you, Porthpean!
