The Children will be updating this daily.



Today we have gone to Ripley castle and have had a tour around the castle. In the shop we all had to buy a postcard to send to our family.  We have just finished the amazing night walk.  Now just about to go to bed.    


This morning we arrived at school at 8:00 and we got on the bus at 8:30. The journey to Ripley took about 2 hours. We got off the bus to go to Ripley castle. Carol, Showed us around Ripley castle. After we went back to the bus and had our lunch. Then we went to Cober hill to find out who we were with. I’m with Anya. Then we got changed for tea. For starter we had leek and potato soup, for our main meal we had Sheppard pie and for dessert we had rice pudding. Today was really fun.     



We have had a spectacular day at Cloughton! Firstly, we set of for Ripley Castle and we had a tiring journey but we soon arrived. It was very exciting finding out about the history of the house, the beautiful garden scenes! Once we had our lunch and bought our postcards, we travelled to Cober Hill. The tea was delicious plus, our table was the quietest! Everyone was full after the meal! Next, we got dressed to go back out for the night walk. We navigated where the North star was (with the help of Mr. Lile)              


I have enjoyed the time at Ripley Castle. I liked the tour that Pat gave us it was really interesting. Before we got here I got butterflies of who I am with in the room. I am with Charlotte and Chloe.

I loved it, I hope we have a good day tomorrow as well.

Today we had our first breakfast at Cloughton, it was very nice. Then we went to Robin Hoods Bay. First we went rock pooling, that was so fun. Secondly we went in to the old lifeguard station and did a quiz. Then we went on a really long walk around the village. I really enjoyed today.

Me, Connor and Oscar woke up and got our room ready, it was hard work! The breakfast was so delicious (I couldn’t finish it).When we all finished we set off to Robin Hoods Bay. First we went to the old coastguard museum where  we learnt about the sea and the tides. We then did a tour of the town and then did some rock pooling. I worked with William and we found lots of things. We even found the shell of a dead  crab and a load of hermit crabs which I held. We have just had tea it was tomato soup, chicken pie, and peach crumble.

Today was the first breakfast at Cloughton! It was so delicious we had coco pops, a cooked breakfast and then we had toast. After that we went to Robin Hoods bay and the old coast guards station. We found out loads of information! Then we went out to do rock pooling. Then we came back and had tea. We had tomato and pea soup, chicken pie then peach crumble. My favourite part of the day was the food because it is soooo good.

This morning I have had my first ever breakfast at Cloughton, it was yummy! My best bit so far was going to Ripley castle because it was sooooo amazing. There was a glistening waterfall, it looked like it was going up instead of down which was kind of weird! We went to Robin Hoods bay, we had lots of fun and I went rock pooling. I caught 5 different sea snails. One snail was quite gruesome. The snail spits on the shell of a sea animal and makes a hole then drinks the animal, YUCK! Then we went to the old coastguard museum which was epic. I got a gift for me and my family, it was a “make your own crystal.”  I bet me and my mum will have fun with it. I’m going to give my mum, step dad and sister some crystals. Yesterday I went on a dark cold nightwalk. We shouted “WE ARE CHUTER EEEEEDDDE!!!” We saw some lights flashing at us we signalled S.O.S . Watch out, there will be more adventures to come....

Today was our first breakfast at Cober Hill, it was delicious! We had cereal which was coco pops then we had a cooked breakfast and lastly we had some toast.

I was very excited for the day’s activities because we went rock pooling at Robin Hood’s bay and visited the old coastguard’s station. We learnt a lot about the coastguard’s responsibility as a coastguard. After our trip to Robin Hood’s bay our legs we’re super achy because we had to walk up so many hills and stairs.

For tea we had tomato and butterbean soup for starters then for main we had chicken pie and then for dessert we had peach crumble.

I am super excited for tomorrow!



Today we had a perfect breakfast. First we had coco pops then we had a cooked breakfast that had eggs, sausages and beans then we travelled to Robin Hoods bay. We did three activities, rock pooling, a tour round the village and then we looked at the coast guard place where they told us about about what happened in the olden days and then we went home.






When we went on the walk I and Zack took photos and videos.
