Year 6 are let loose on the Island

Wacky races was rained off so the children took part in some team games which included a bin bag fashion walk and hula hooping whilst blowing bubbles.

On arrival at Seaview Wildlife Centre, one child asked, "Will we see any wildlife today?" We were very lucky and did get to see lots of wildlife - ducks, geese, flamingos, ducks, geese, meerkats, ducks, geese, owls, ducks, geese, a few swans, penguins and some ducks and geese (are you getting the impression that there were lots of birds?). The ducks and geese were (over-) fed by all the children. We enjoyed feeding the penguins their lunch and the penguins enjoyed watching us eat ours.

We left Seaview Wildlife Centre and headed to Bembridge windmill. The children put their artist skills into practice by sketching and then watercolour painting the windmill and surrounding landscape. Terry and Chris, our tour guides, informed us about the windmill during an interactive tour. When the children finished their paintings, they enjoyed spending some free time playing cricket, tennis and rugby although some of the girls preferred to sit and chat - something we are getting used to.

Log on tomorrow to read about our final activities at PGL and to see if anyone can beat Miss Ridger's score at archery.
