After a reasonable night for most we had to wake everyone up for breakfast this morning. The weather looks hot and sunny again.


Activities today include low ropes, bike skills and survival skills. A day in and out of the woods for year 6 today so it is bound to be full of surprises.

After dinner underground maze and orienteering. Lots of fears conquered tonight and then the teachers ambushed the children with water pistols and a bucket purely to cool them down.

All safely delivered home after our mammoth coach journey on the hottest day of the year.

Manor Adventure was as the children put it the best trip ever. 

What a privilege it has been to spend a week with all your children in the glorious sunny Shropshire, the staff at Manor Adventure were taken by the manners, attitude and politeness of SJF and we think you are all pretty special too. We are all very proud of you.
