Benmore Day 2

Food is definitely proving popular with large helpings being eaten at each meal – afternoon tiffin with cake also much anticipated. Groups today went caving (well done to Mrs Mercer for squeezing through the tunnel too), in the forest (where Ms Kavanagh took part in a race through a concrete water pipe), doing a gorge walk and dashing through mud on mountain bikes. Our class has been mingling well with the other schools, sometimes choosing to sit at other schools’ tables. It did rain a lot today, but we would all have got very muddy and wet anyway. Many thanks to folk leaving comments which we will pass on. We will try to get some photos on soon. It was a bit dark and wet for photos today and Mr Devereux thinks his camera has died in the rain. Oh dear.

I had lots of fun doing caving and crawling through small gaps, says Jemma.

I had lot of fun gorge walking, says Amy.

I had fun mountain biking because I splashed through lots of puddles, says George.

I have enjoyed all of the time activities. I have also enjoyed spending time with my friends. PS Hi Mum, says Alastair.
