Day two at Whitemoor Lakes.

Year five woke up positive and ready to go. We'd had a relatively early night about -11:30 p.m (!!) and a relatively early morning- the first room up was about 6:00 a.m. However, the weather forecast was saying that it was going to be better than Monday, so we were looking forward to a more settled day. The day began with a hearty breakfast of  bacon, sausage, egg and waffles. We had a full day of activities today, including the lake, as the winds had dropped. Although the instructor did say that the temperature of the lake was around 7° C. This did not put off the children who at the end of their activities decided they were going to plunge into the lake. Mr. Yeo also did this under peer pressure from Mr. Davey and Mrs. Baines did it from a gentle push by Sophia! Luckily we were all quickly into hot showers and so hypothermia was avoided. We are now heading off finishing our evening with a campfire and, as we look out of the window, a rainbow has come out to end our day at Whitemoor Lakes.
