🧳 Diary of the year 6 travellers! 🧳
Friday 19th May
Well, we’ve come to the end of a spectacular residential. Our bags 🧳 were all packed and we went for our final breakfast 🍳 of the holiday. It was a bacon 🥓 , fried egg 🍳 and hash brown kind of day for most of us. Some children had cereal 🥣 and yoghurt.
We did the final checks then headed towards our bus 🚌 waiting point. We had to take a minibus 🚐 to the main coach because it was too big to get down the lane to Calvert. The children 👧 👦 were fab. It was a long journey to the airport! Lots of traffic 🚗 🚙 🚗 🚗 🚙.
We arrived and checked in immediately before going through fast track security. Only 3 bag checks to do!! 🤩 Almost immediately, our gate was called and we went off to gate 27. Bristol airport was very busy and we stuck close to our group leaders. We were so rushed we didn’t get to stop at McDonald’s! No fries for us 😞!
We were all amazingly patient when waiting for the plane ✈️. Now was our last chance to raid the teachers 👩🏻🧔♂️sweetie 🍬 and fruit 🍏 🍎 🍊 🍌 stash!! Mrs Sullivan 👩🏻🏫 bought us all some water🚰 and then we boarded the plane at 14.20.
The flight ✈️ was fairly uneventful, just a chance for us to finish all the crisps and sweets 🍬 we still had. The trip had one final surprise for us. As we came into land, the pilot 👨✈️ misjudged the runway and couldn’t land!! So we had a double take off and a double landing 🛬!! When we finally did land, everyone was extremely excited to see our families 👨👩👧👨👧👩👦👨👧👦👨👦👨👦👦👩👧👧👨👨👧 - we said goodbye 👋 and that was the end of our adventures.
I think we will all sleep well this weekend!!!!

Final note from our teachers:
We have had a wonderful time with the children this week. They have behaved beautifully and really challenged themselves. Their resilience and determination never failed to impress us. We were also seriously impressed with their dance moves!!!
A huge thanks goes to our dedicated PSFA who raised the funds to send us to Calvert. The children will hopefully remember this experience for the rest of their lives.
Thank you so much for your support and for your trust in us to bring them back in one piece! Now, time to collapse!! 😆
Many thanks, The Staff Team - Deanna, Lou, Chris, Christine, Paula, Cat & Caitlin
