Holland 2018: Final Report

Good morning to all our readers, thanks you to those who have been in touch, our travellers love to read your comments.

Today was our second cross border incursion to our third country – The Kingdom of Belgium.

Our visit to Bobbejaanland was accompanied by some beautiful weather and we had a great day in the sunshine. It all got too much for our First Aider (Jill Johnstone) who required to seek attention at the Medical Room, she was advised by the attending staff that there was little that they could do about ageing.

The young team continued to make the most of the great weather and the many thrill rides of Bobbejaanland before collecting Jill and taking her for a cup of tea and a wee scone.

The return journey had many sleepyheads recharging batteries for our final evening in the amazing  Hotel Op De Boud .

Bowling and Karaoke until bedtime.

All the staff would like to thank the parents and carers for entrusting your fantastic young people to our care for the past week. They have been great company and a real credit to their families and the school.

This is our final blog post of the trip as we have no internet access on North Sea Ferry.

See you all on Thursday afternoon.





Holland 2018: The quiet day

Long lie this morning, breakfast at 08:00 Dutch time – which is Tuesday in the UK

The agreed collaboratively planned lesson:


  • To develop responsible team working skills where nobody is left behind
  • to provide multi-venue opportunities to show resilience and perseverance under pressure, requiring resourceful quick thinking to solve real life problems as they are encountered in a unfamiliar environment.


  • By tackling the Europe’s largest high ropes course and associated Alpine Roller Coaster
  • Water based activities in the fun filled Mosaqua pool
  • Team working at LaserTag at Valkenburg Agogo.

Our planned intention is to avoid added vomit as previously conducted self evaluation and reflection has identified that this is now an activity which we have all achieved Level 3 Secure by the end of S1 (although we will obviously not be using this language in reports)


  • Why not

Holland 2018: Phantasialand report

An early start this morning for our cross border incursion to the Bundesrepublik Deutschland to the amazing Phantasialand

Today has been a full on festival of fun, food and fast coasters, and today we really have seen it all – sometimes twice!!

The lesson sequence was:

Breakfast – Bus Journey (sorry Coach) – Tuck Shop – River Quest – Ice Cream – Colorado Adventure – Churros – Talocan – Chocolate Strawberry kebabs – Taron – Bratwurst mit brötchen – Chiapas die Wasserbahn – Chicken Nuggets – Black Mamba – BREAKFAST AGAIN – Maus au Chocolat – small sips of water

Every day is learning day and today the unintended learning intention has been around the motion path of vomit from a small boy on a recently halted Roller Coaster. Todays experiment would appear to indicate that it does not travel very far but can cover quite a significant surface area, even of bits not in the initial motion path. It would appear that it can also cause other coaster users to have a delayed exit whilst park staff enact their  “Code Lumpy Carrot” decontamination procedures.

Fortunately the shop on the park carries a small range of garment suitable for small boys covered in puke and the fun was able to continue after the learning had stopped.

An important feature of any science experiment is reputability, on this occasion following an extensive and involved self-evaluation exercise it has been decided that effort to repeat this experiment would be best delayed until next year.

As predicted in yesterdays blog comments there was much more screaming today – “CAN I GET A SICK BAG” was a feature of the return journey.

Monday is the rest day – and learning more stuff!
