Wonderful Week 2018 - Day 3 Update

Wonderful Week Day 3

Creepy Crawly Roadshow
Today the ‘Face Your Fears’ group have conquered lots of fears by holding lots of unusual insects and animals. All of the students had the opportunity to hold the animals and learn all about them. After break they took part in an eating challenge where the students tasted lots of interesting things. They were really surprised at some of the foods that they liked which they had presumed they would have hated!

The Challenge!
It’s been another day full of challenges in Scotland! The students have enjoyed playing laser tag, mountain biking, kayaking, sailing, zorbing, archery – not to mention playing on an inflatable water park! All students are having a fabulous time and are looking forward to another fun-filled day tomorrow!

St Mary’s Bake Off
Today was bread day! The bakers enjoyed learning the skills of needing and proving to get the perfect loaf. They also made some dough which they later used to make pizzas for their lunch – yum!

Prop Making
Lots of hard work has gone on today in props! The students have worked fabulously on the intricate details of their props now that they have completed their main designs. We are really looking forward to seeing the completed props at the end of the week.

Xtreme Action!
Students and staff have had a great day at the Chill Factore in Manchester. They spent time on the climbing wall and in the snow park. They are all really looking forward to tomorrow’s activity of the high ropes!

Football
The footballers are all looking rather tanned after another day in the sunshine. Fleetwood Town FC have bene working with the students on their passing, dribbling and shooting. Another great day had by all!

Sports and Leisure
The Sports and Leisure group have had a wonderful day at the Chill Factore and The Trafford Centre.

I love Blackpool
Once again Blackpool has not disappointed! All students have had a wonderful day at a variety of locations: Blackpool Tower, the Sea Life Centre, The Dungeons and the zoo.
