Our last day at Ford Castle

This morning was our final morning here at a Ford Castle. We have had an amazing week full of challenges, many laughs and making new memories.


Day 3 and 4

On Wednesday we all went on a 6 mile walk to Etal and back. We were all very tired but had lots of fun at Etal Castle on the cannons.

Everyone was very excited for zip lining and crate stacking too. There were lots of smiles and happy screams being heard around the woods.

We also went into the woods to build and light our own fires and dens. We had a competition to see who’s fire would stay lit for the longest.

Day 2

Today we have been to Holy Island for most of the day doing a nature walk. We identified different types of wild life, went rockpooling and shell hunting and even saw some grey seals. One of The highlights of our day was a trip to the beach where we ate lunch, paddled (or charged) in the sea and climbed some Sand dunes. When we got back to the castle, we competed in an assault course (carrying a welly full of water whilst trying not to spill it) and had a fencing lesson.

Ford Castle Day 1

What an exciting start to our residential! Here are some photos of Miss Allan’s group from today. Both groups had an exciting afternoon of canoeing and doing the high all aboard challenge. It was an activity of pushing ourselves and trust.
