Astley Burf day 5

After all that dancing last night, everyone slept very well. Once everyone was up and we'd had breakfast it was time to pack up and check the cabins were tidy. When everyone was packed, we split into teams and went orienteering around the camp site. Despite the rain, everyone had fun.

We dried off in front of a film before having lunch.

Soon the coach was loaded and we said our goodbyes to the Astley Burf staff. Although we were sad to leave we all have lots of happy memories of our week at camp.

Mrs Ashby would like to thank all the staff for all their hard work this week, and all the pupils for being so well behaved.

Astley Burf day 4

This morning we had to wave goodbye to Mr Chamberlain who had to head back to school, but we welcomed Mr Edney-Evans in his place. After breakfast we packed up our swimming gear and headed into Stourport. We went swimming and had a lot of fun.

When everyone was dressed we headed over to the park for fish and chips.

After letting our food go down, we had time for a play in the park.

When we got back to camp we had some free time before packing up our belongings ready for tomorrow.

After tea, we all put our glad rags on and headed to the Rec Room for the last night disco. Mr Chamberlain had supplied us with music and instructions on how to be a DJ. We had a slight glitter ball problem, but fortunately Mr Edney-Evans managed to rig up a high-tech solution.

The disco was great fun. Almost everyone joined in with the dancing, and we were joined by Mrs Doman, Mrs Duckworth, Mrs Ruston and Mrs Sidaway for the evening.

When the disco was over, everyone went to bed ready for our last morning before home.

Astley Burf Day 2

This morning we got up early ready for an exciting day of activities. Once the cabins were tidy (ish) we split into four teams to tackle the high wire, team games, mountain biking and the climbing wall. Everyone tried something new and overcame their fears.
