Wonderful Week 2018 - Day 4 Update

Wonderful Week Day 4

Today the Bake Off group have had a master class from Mrs. Flook on the art of cake icing and decorating. They then created their own fantastic designs including a unicorn, a sea themed cake and a mermaid.

The Week of Culture group have been preparing for their end of week fashion show tomorrow by having a dress rehearsal of makeup. They will be bringing in their own outfits and accessorising with scarves and jewellery.

The Year Seven group, who have enjoyed their time at camp, have now returned and today they visited the zoo.

Laser tag, the escape room and bowling was on the agenda for those participating in Sport and Leisure today after an exciting day at Chill Factore yesterday. Henry set the fifth fastest time up the climbing wall – a staggering 17.3 seconds. The instructors were amazed that Henry had no climbing experience and the determination and resilience he showed to get onto the awards board. Well done Henry!

Fears continued to be conquered by facing sharks at the Sea Life Centre and the darkness of the Tower Dungeons for both I Love Blackpool and the Face your Fears groups.

The finishing touches were being put to the props today by their group as they painted and soldered.

The Xtreme Action group have been out at Stanley Park on the high ropes course and the football team have continued their coaching with Fleetwood Town.

Sixth Form pupils have spent the day preparing for their visit to Edge Hill University tomorrow.

The students who have been to Barcelona and London are making their way home today and we look forward to hearing all about their experiences tomorrow.
