Hello parents & families,
I've had a wonderful day visiting everyone at Laches Wood. The children are all absolutely fine. I have taken part in a search and rescue fun challenge and after that I learned the skill of archery. The children were far better than me!! Some groups were BMX cycling through the woods. (Well done Katie Dickinson, you were a star!). I've seen children learning bushcraft skills, toasting marshmallows and cooking delicious bread on a campfire.
The accommodation is extremely comfortable and I see your children are well trained: everything is spick and span!!
I will put photos on as soon as possible!

It looks like the children are having great fun! They also are lucky with the weather!
Don't think I'd be brave to go up so high!!
I'm visiting tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Wednesday 29th April
The weather has been glorious again throughout the day and in to the evening unlike back home!!!
Another busy day that started with a good breakfast and room inspection (much needed!).
Activities with groups I, J & K included search and rescue in the morning. Mrs Chadwick was a surprise visitor and helped to rescue the pilots from an aeroplane wreckage.
Groups L, M & N started the morning off with bushcraft where they worked together to build shelters to protect them from the elements. They also cooked some bread dough and marsh mellows over an open fire. They were scrumptious.
This afternoon different groups took part in archery, BMX biking and indoor caving.
As we write, the children are searching for treasure. To help the children sleep we will be finishing off with a nice cup of hot chocolate and biscuit before going to bed ready for another early start tomorrow - we are off to Cannock Chase, deer hunting and a habitat expedition.
See you tomorrow for another update.
Laches Wood - Monday 27th April 2015
Arrived safely at 11.45am. Children settled in to dormatories, unpacked, had a safety talk and given their agenda for the week. Lunch consisted of a full english style breakfast which was a very welcome sight!!
Children have completed their first activity - Groups I, J & K had a great time on the high ropes and challenged themselves. Groups L, M & N suddenly became Robin Hoods when displaying their super archery skills.
We have just finshed our evening meal and will be searching for clues on the Photo Trail this evening.
Watch this space for further information tomorrow evening.
Photos will be added as soon as possible.
