Day 3 – Loch Insh

A great day for ducks and all Law Primary kids. By day three there are very few dry clothes in our dorms but we have all had a fantastic time on the water. The loch has been so calm which had meant some epic journeys up the loch, we’ve visited remote islands and Mr Barnes almost made it to the River Spey. This morning some of us enjoyed problem solving, a chance to be on dry land for a couple of hours. During this session the girls trashed the boys at assembling a tent, we all became entangled in knots and we managed to engineer our own tripod to cross a deathly moat. Just a normal morning here at Loch Insh. Robbie has also had a fabulous time joining us with our activities. Just today he has been kayakking and sledging on the dry ski slop, even getting `some air’ off a jump; demanding to go higher and higher up the slope.
In the afternoon a group of us did some sailing, we mastered all of the basics and we had a chance to test our skills by sailing home in The Big Storm; well a wee hailstorm to be more precise. Here are some shots from today; look out for Mr Barnes’s funky cycling kit. I did miss a fantastic photo opportunity last night when Miss Skinner became entangled on the assault course netting until she was left flailing and hanging upside down. Thankfully the children were able to help her down as the teachers were too busy giggling – sorry Miss Skinner. Tonight is the final disco before a morning of further activities and a lunchtime departure. Getting those washing machines warmed up!!

  1. I not to mention my friends came analyzing the nice things from the blog and then immediately developed a terrible suspicion I had not thanked the website owner for those techniques. Those men ended up absolutely very interested to read through all of them and now have in reality been using these things. We appreciate you really being well accommodating and then for having this sort of outstanding things most people are really wanting to discover. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to earlier.

  2. I was suggested this website by my cousin. I’m not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my difficulty. You are wonderful! Thanks!

  3. An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I believe that you must write more on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic but generally people are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  4. Thanks for another fantastic article. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.

  5. Thanks , I have recently been searching for info about this topic for ages and yours is the best I’ve discovered till now. But, what about the bottom line? Are you sure about the source?

  6. Hello there, I found your site via Google while searching for a related topic, your website came up, it looks good. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  8. The photos tell the tale. A great time had by all.The Middle Area have all read your blogs during this morning’s assembly and they are hoping that they will get the chance to go to Loch Insh in P7. Super Cool Not! was the comment they made about Mr Barnes and his cycling gear. And I am afraid they all giggled when they heard about Miss Skinner hanging upside down in the climbing net.
    Well, we have had a wet playtime and primary 4 have all done an accelerated Reading test. Hope they have done well. Where would you rather be? reading test or Loch Insh? No contest. Have a safe journey home and enjoy all the spoiling you get when you get home.

    James; it is still soaking wet in Manchester. After cycling in this morning I think I was about as wet as anyone who has had a dunk in the loch. Looking forward to hearing all of your stories

  41. It looks like you are having a super time at Loch Insh (I am guessing it beats maths and spelling back here at school?) Hope you managed to avoid falling the loch (too many times!). Say hi to everyone else in P7c from me too and make sure you are looking after Mrs Barbour and all the other teachers- I hope they have all managed to avoid falling in the loch too! I cannot believe Miss Brodie did not get a photo of Miss Skinner hanging upside down…
    Mrs Foster.

  42. Hannah – It’s good to see your smiling face on the photos. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Got plenty of extra washing powder, hot cocoa and cosy blankets at the ready!! Enjoy the disco tonight. Mum xxxxx
