Miss Bramley's group
Last night, we did a mini Olympics with 6 activities involved. Mrs Barnard`s group came 1st and our group came 2nd - 1 point behind the winners. We also did a quiz with a bonus flag round, the Quizard Wizards (Ollie.P, Isaac, Joshua and Tyler) came first.
Today we woke up again at 7.30 and went for breakfast. This morning we had: cereal, toast and a cooked breakfast of bacon, eggs and beans. We then went to Robin Hoods Bay. We had 3 activities: rock pooling, a walk round the Village and a quiz about sea life and erosion. When we were rock pooling, we found a crab that had lost 2 legs and a pincer. We were amazed to find out that the crab could possibly grow them back. We also found out about “driller killers”, sea snails that spit acid and eat limpets.
Our highlights of the day
Amelia- I really liked going rock pooling because we got to learn about things we hadn’t seen before and rummage through all of the rocks.
Willis- I liked the village walk because I liked finding all of the buildings that matched to the pictures.
Harry- I enjoyed the Old Coastguard Station where they had a wind tunnel and you could make a hurricane.
Ollie.P- My favourite thing today was the walk because it was really nice weather and I liked finding out about all of the buildings.
Ula- I loved rock pooling because I found a hermit crab!
Isaac- My favourite part of Cloughton so far was the walk around the village because even though we got lost a few times, I enjoyed seeing all of the old buildings.
Nancy- Personally, I thought that the village walk was really nice because the atmosphere felt different to what it is like at home.
Ben- I enjoyed eating our lunch looking over the sea.
We all loved eating chips!!!
We are looking forward to the movie tonight (the BFG) and Bempton cliffs tomorrow.
Mrs Barnard's group
Yesterday we did 17,462 steps it was tiring. Last night, team Barnard won the mini Olympics we won with 154 points . Our team name was the Whitby Warriors.
Today we went to Robin Hood’s Bay. We all enjoyed the rock pooling but got very tired climbing up the stairs and hill. We learnt about the tides, fossils, erosion, sea levels and about houses dropping off the cliff!
In the rock pools we found: hermit crabs, some fossils, shells, sea snails and a dead crab. Noa found ten hermit crabs and Tobias found twenty seven. Mrs Barnard found an anemone- it can paralyse a fish but it does no harm to humans. After, we went to the park where Tyler saw the biggest slide he has seen.
Our daily highlights:
Elodie - “I liked rock pooling, I thought it was fun.”
Oliver- “I enjoyed going in the Secret garden and playing tig.”
Noa- “I liked sharing the chips with the teachers.”
Lucy – “I enjoyed rock pooling because it was my first time.”
Eric- “I liked playing in the park because Mr Hattersley was hilarious!”
Tyler – “I really liked going around the village and spotting things.”
Tobias- “I enjoyed learning about everything today.”
Grace D – “I enjoyed the rock pooling and catching all the hermit crabs.”
Tonight we are watching a film. Hope we don’t fall asleep!
Mr Head/ Ms Spurr
Last night we did some mini Olympics and it was really fun. We did throwing a bean bag, goal kick and more fun activities. This morning we went for breakfast and we had: Beans, Bacon, Egg, Toast and cereals. Very tasty! We really enjoyed breakfast and then after breakfast we went to the beautiful Robin Hood bay. We had the chance to go rock pooling and a walk through Robin Hood’s bay’s history. We caught crabs, snails and lots of different shells and creatures. Then we went to the park where we sat and relaxed for a little while. Next we got on the coach for about 45 minutes and chilled out some more. We had a lot of fun today and we are thrilled that we now have Miss Spurr as our leader. We are hoping to have lots more fun in the following days that we have to come.

Miss Mackinder's Group
Today we went on an amazing trip to Robin Hoods Bay. First we travelled down the hill to the old coastguard station. Then we found out what activity we were going to do. Our group’s first activity was doing a quiz which we had to read some facts on the walls to get the answer. Next we went rock pooling and we got a bucket to fill and collect creatures. Then we had lunch. Mr Hattersley very kindly bought us some chips at lunch time to go with our sandwiches. After lunch we went on a photo walk trail around Robin Hood’s Bay. We found out lots of facts about the history of the town. It was mostly filled with fishermen and traders. A lot of people drowned at sea in the past. Their families made sure they wore special named jumpers so they could be identified.
When we got back we went into the secret garden and played a few games. We went on this massive slide and so did the teachers! Miss Mackinder and Mrs Barnard had a collision and they both fell on the floor. Miss Mackinder still has mud in her ear!
