The Phoenix Primary School & Nursery, Leinster Rd, Basildon, SS15 5NQ
We are finally here! I was beyond excited all weekend . Everyone was at school bright and early and ready for the trip. A huge thank you to my amazing staff for all their hard work this morning.
We set off ahead of schedule and the weather was incredible. So much better than last year’s rainy start. We arrived about 11am and were very excited to have Harry as our Course Director for the second year running.
We emptied the coach and all went and unpacked in our rooms. I was so excited to be back here - especially as the sun was shining!
We had lunch and then went out for the afternoon’s activities - ice breakers, trust and rope skill activities. The children were all amazing and had a brilliant time.
Dinner was burger and chips and Mr Irons thoroughly enjoyed it! Miss Chapman and Mr Irons were in charge of the tuck shop today and this proved very popular with everyone.
The evening activities were either Owls and Mice or staying in. Miss Chapman, Mrs Allan and Mr Bushell went outside for Owls and Mice while the rest of us stayed at the centre playing games. We’ve had the best day! Can’t wait for tomorrow.
Sleep tight everyone. We will be back in the morning.
The Hilltop Crew!
