Stubbington 2024
Friday
The last day of our residential! What an amazing week.
We have had fun, games, several Stubby biscuits and lots of laughs. We have made new friends, learned a lot and done things we didn't think we could.
We are so proud of every one of you. We hope you enjoyed your time as much as we did!
Thursday
WE HAD MANY VISITORS TO OUR MAMMAL HOTELS!!!!
It was so amazing to see that small mammals had been interested in our hotels and decided to spend the night. We opened each hotel carefully to see what was inside. We weighed them, measured them, decided on their gender and then gave them a name.
In the afternoon, it was Hedgehogs turn on Earthquake. They worked brilliantly in teams to bring the equipment and resources to the Earthquake victims!
Foxes took part in the Eggstreme challenge. Some of the ways they protected their eggs were so creative! Brilliant problem solving.
One more sleep to go!
Wednesday
Another fabulous day! After a good night's sleep and another cooked breakfast, we set off for our first session.
Foxes went to Earthquake! We had to deliver emergency equipment and supplies to victims of an Earthquake!
Every single person had a go at Lava Leap. We are all so so proud!
Hedgehogs tried their hand at lighting fires before pulling apart owl pellets.
After lunch, we all went into the conservation area. The local council want to use some of the land as a car park so we needed to prove that animals live there.
We looked around the conservation area for any signs of animals living there and then set up mammal hotels. We will check them in the morning and see if we have any visitors.
I lost my ipad for a short while today. I wonder who found it????
Tuesday
Who would have thought that today could have been even better!
After a good night sleep and a cooked breakfast, we were ready for the day ahead.
We split into our classes for the morning activities. Hedgehogs started the day with Eggstreme Challenge. We had to solve lots of problems to earn counters. We could then exchange the counters for materials that would protect an egg as it was launched across the field!
Meanwhile, Foxes went off to investigate and pull apart some owl pellets!
They then learned how to light a fire!!!!!!!!
After lunch (and a quick visit to the tuck shop), we were off again. This time, down to the beach!!!! We created our own rock pools, created sea themed sculptures and searched for fossils. We even found a few!

Happy Birthday to these two! What a place to celebrate your birthday.
Monday 
We're here!!!!!! Thank you to everyone for the send off this morning. We arrived (rather excitedly) and were taken to our dorm rooms, had a tour of the site, unpacked our suitcases and had our first meal in the Snuffle Hole.
After lunch, we split into our class groups. We were taken to a remote island where we had to build shelters before the storm hit. Some of our shelters were able to withstand the rain. Sadly, others were not!!!!!
Once we had escaped the island, we were taken to the Amazon where we had to help transport medicine around the jungle without stepping on the treacherous floor!
