Simonsbath Residential

Class 2 had an absolutely brilliant time at Simonsbath it was literally non-stop from the time we arrived.

The older children enjoyed mountain biking and tree climbing, whilst the younger ones grass sledged and climbed. They all climbed the 3m Great Wall with such tenacity and with nothing more than a rope! After archery, the highlight was Stream Scrambling, where everyone got wet (even in their waders and waterproof coats!) and we had to tip Jack upside down to empty him, before he collapsed with the weight of water he was trying to haul himself along with! We had great fun Morris Dancing, and we are pleased to say there were no bashed fingers (as far as we know!) By the way, if your child says they don't know how to make a packed lunch, or make a bed, see Mr Walters first! A big thank you to Louise, Emily and Paul for taking such good care of us and giving us such a lovely time. This was our fourth visit and it was quite thought provoking how we have seen Louise's baby, Megan, grow up to be a 12 year old now - and Bramble the collie dog, who we saw as a puppy! Happy memories!
