Hooke Court 2019
Day 1
We enjoyed a smooth, uneventful journey to sunny Dorset and after our packed lunch we set about building rafts to paddle round the lake. The children learnt how to tie a variety of knots and worked co-operatively to successfully paddle and steer with a partner. This evening we had fun on the low ropes course before returning to our accommodation for board games and birthday cake.

Day 2
The children slept well and started getting up around 7am for showers and breakfast. Then after an early morning production sing in the sunshine, we set off for our first activity of the day: bridging the moat. We had a picnic lunch, followed by den building in the woods. On our return, we visited the gift shop and enjoyed some free time in the adventure play area. This evening we enjoyed a bbq before getting ready for the barn dance. The weather has been glorious and the children and staff have had a really great day.

Day 3
We have had a fabulous medieval themed day with outdoor cooking, wattle and daub building, jewellery making, tapestry weaving and a banquet. This evening we enjoyed singing round the campfire before hot chocolate and bedtime stories. It has been another sunny day! Looking forward to our coastal walk in the morning.

Day 4
For our final day of residential we visited the beautiful coast line of Durdle Door before our coastal walk to Lulworth Cove for a picnic and an icecream. The weather was perfect and the view was spectacular. It was a great way to end what has been a fantastic 4 days.
