Restful Residential!?

Res 5

Watergate have had an action packed week after a wonderful weekend.

On Friday, Watergate embarked on two mini buses to Wepre Park. We had a wonderful morning exploring the forest, pond and park before walking up the castle to have lunch. The children completed a nature hunt, spotting flora and fauna and took pictures to document their adventure. The children were impeccably well behaved, representing themselves and the school brilliantly.

When we returned to school, the children created their camp and once we had tents and teddies all set up, we settled down for family dinner. The children were thrilled at the opportunity to be the only class in school and took full advantage of the free playground. In the evening, we shared cookies and milk in front of a movie before retiring to our rooms for story time.

On Saturday, Watergate were excited to wake up and have breakfast together. As the children packed up their camp, UK Military School surprised them and we marched outside for drills, team building challenges and friendship activities but the surprise didn’t end there. The children were so excited to find a giant, inflatable assault course in the hall. We had hours of fun racing, running and jumping through the inflatable- what a super morning.
