The last post

So this is the final entry to the 2011 Northumberland Blog.  All the staff have thoroughly enjoyed sharing this learning experience with your children and we hope they have enjoyed their experiences with us too.  We think that a perfect end to a fantastic week would be to hear from the children that came with us and how, on reflection, it has helped them enter into this difficult and important year with us at Herringthorpe.

A huge thank you must go to all the parents who have been engaged in sharing this journey with us by following with enthusiasm our blog.  We hope you, the parents,  have had a week to remember like I know our staff and children have.

Thank you

  10. Hi its Charlotte, I had a wonderful time! The best part was when we went to make the sandcastles on the beach. I think our group learnt to work as a team really well, even the boys!I loved shareing a room with Ellis we had a lot of laughs! Here are a few examples: the time when the shower door fell of on Ellis, Our sliding wardrobe door got stuck and we couldn't get our waterproofs out. And when the toilet roll holder fell off, but we managed to fix it! I think our room was falling to peices!!!I would like to thank all of the staff for making it possible. And I would like to thank the hotel staff for making it a loveley stay.Charlotte xx

  11. Greetings from the top blogger of the week! er…or something!Matt has thoroughly enjoyed his trip and that's thanks to all the other children and staff who accompanied him. A massive, massive thank you to all who gave up their time (us teachers don't get much time as it is) to make this residential a success and an amazing experience for the children (and hopefully the staff too). The blog has been a great way of experiencing the residential with the children and I've certainly enjoyed it, as you may be able to tell!The house is now far noisier and Matt hasn't shut up about the trip since he got back. I expected him to be tired, but he's running on Duracell or something because he's still up and running.Massive thanks again, to all the children and staff involved. You're a credit to the school!Matt's Dad, signing off, at last!

  12. Hi everyone, its Matti here. First of all I would like to thank all my teachers for taking us on this fabulous trip.

  15. Ellis says shes had a brilliant time on the residential. she always enjoys the experience of being away from home and i think it does them all the world of good to have this experience and opportunity to do helps them become more independent. apart from the shower door falling on her(it could only happen to our ellis!!) i dont think shes had any negative comments. her and charlotte had great nights sleep by the sounds of it and the food was lovely apparently!!thanks to all the staff for looking after them and thanks for the blog to let us know what was happening everyday!

  16. Different to be back home. My favourite part was at bambrough castle and going on the boat. mrs.lindsey said that on the boat she likes it more of a roller coaster ride. Shareing a room with my friend charlotte kerr was brilliant we had such a laugh. The meals were fantastic my favorite one was spagetti bolagnase with french bread wich was garlic bread yumm!!!
