Another fantastic day in Lincolnshire. Fortunately, we have had no rain yet.
The children have had a great day with some very challenging activities, including vertical challenge (climbing up various obstacles to reach the summit) and the giant swing (videos to follow soon - you have to see them to believe it!)
And tonight we have finished off the day with a disco which has expended more energy with some pupils becoming quite sweaty in the process. Mr White also came to join us for tonight's festivities and I think he was exhausted just watching the children.
Needless to say, they are all absolutely exhausted. Cameron and Ben both asked if they could go to bed half way through the disco.
Finally, we have had a talent show with some outstanding skills demonstrated on stage by the pupils of St John's. There was singing from Maisy, Isabelle F, Millie T, Lana and Chloe, some beat boxing from Finnley and some crazy comedy from Toby, Seb, Jake, Charlie H, Mitchell, Oliver, Daniel and Andreas (think I've remembered them all!) After a clap-o-meter style decider, Finnley and Chloe were crowned joint winners. Congratulations to them both.
We are off to pack up all our things now, this may take longer for some than others. And I'm certain they will all be asleep shortly too.
Last day tomorrow then we can't wait to get home and tell you all about it!
P.S. Photos are taking an extremely long time to load up onto the website due to slow internet connection here so I am putting on what I can but a lot might have to wait until the weekend. Sorry it cannot be done any sooner.

What a fantastic day here at Caythorpe Court! We have completed many exciting challenges including: rock climbing, sensory trail, all aboard, abseiling and archery. Furthermore the weather has been on our side! Lots of blue skies and no rain.
Take a look at some of the photos.
Tuesday 1st December
What a fantastic day we have all had! The children and staff can't believe how much fun we have had and how much we have learnt in such a short space of time. This has been topped off with three full meals today, starting off with a cooked breakfast with bacon and eggs, meatballs and pasta for lunch and chicken or cottage pie for tea so you have no fears that we are eating very well indeed. And we have needed to because we have been outside all day doing some extremely energetic activities. Here are some of the highlights from today so far:
So as you can see we have had so much fun and laughter today. Please look at the links above to take a look at the photos.
And they all slept the whole night through from about 11pm!!!!! Hopefully, I have not just jinxed this.
They are really doing you and St John's Church of England Academy proud with their behaviour and attitude in every aspect of what we are doing.
Enjoy the photos.

All the children are settled into their rooms. Strangely, the girls corridor is much quieter and tidier than the boys??!!
We had fish finger, chips and curry for tea, everyone has eaten well.
Tonight we are on an orienteering challenge in the dark!
More updates later.
Don't have too much fun without us!
