Benmore Day 1

We all arrived safely, having enjoyed our bus drive through some snow and hail followed by a smooth ferry crossing despite the choppy seas!

Quick juice and a biscuit before heading into our groups to get kitted out in waterproofs, wellies etc for a walk through  the Benmore grounds.  It’s a wee bit chilly up here but we are all wrapping up warm and layering up before we go out.

We enjoyed a dinner of fish and chips before sitting down to write our daily diary.  Mrs Wilson has offered some prizes for best presentation in the diaries and best reflections so we are all trying really hard.

It started snowing about teatime so that meant we had to get lots of warm clothes on for the night walk.  It was pitch black when we set out but some great teamwork got us along the rope, past the obstacles and safely through the woods in the pitch black, no torches allowed!

We got back to the centre and were hosed down to get some of the mud off and then it was straight to bed. Lights are out and hopefully everyone is asleep as we write this up, dreaming about our activities tomorrow…

“when we got here we had to make our own beds!”  Sean

“tonight we went on a night walk, I couldn’t wait!” Mia

“it was a long journey to get here, but it was still really fun” Emma

  16. Good morning Miss Higgins! We’ve got lots of snow in Tranent. What does the scenery look like at Benmore? How was your trip? Did you have a good day yesterday? We worked really hard yesterday. In pairs we did one minute challenges to see how many star jumps we could do before the timer ran out. We learned about the celebration Holi and drew colourful chalk pictures in the playground.
