In the limestone cave, we found stalactites and stalagmites. Everyone showed great determination and resilience and managed to get through all the small  gaps and even sat in part […]

The day with all the birthdays

Good morning from Pixies Holt. Everybody slept well and we are full of energy for the day ahead. We’re all looking forward to lunchtime and 4 birthday cakes 🎂!!

Dinner time and night walk

For dinner, we had as much pasta and bolognaise as we could eat, followed by homemade raspberry sponge cake and raspberry ripple ice cream.  We then found our torches and headed out for our night walk. We followed the river and navigated our way to a clearing where we switched off our torches and enjoyed […]

Moorland and woodland walk

      This afternoon, we walked up and up and up into the woods. We learnt about deciduous and coniferous trees, as well as different moss and lichens. Some us were brave and tasted some gorse whilst others lost their shoes/boots in the bogs. All were recovered. We climbed a tor with stunning views […]

We’ve arrived

We arrived safely just after 11am. After a tour of Pixies Holt we went to our rooms and tried to make our beds!! We’re now enjoying our lunch before our afternoon hike.

See you soon 🙂

After a McDonald’s we have just left Bristol. Some big hugs from the children are on the way 🙂


The children all had a brilliant time at Legoland. Sorry for only a few photo but we were having to much fun. We are now homeward bound with 16 very tired children.  


What a very tired bunch of children we have this morning. A very good night sleep had by all. Filling ourselves up now before Legoland 🙂

Day 2 Part 1

Body Board

Some photos of this morning’s Body Board session…

…and then this happened!

We’d just all settled down for the night when the fire alarm went off. We were so impressed with the children who got up, put a hoodie and shoes on and headed down to our assembly point, just like we practised. They also sat very quietly whilst the Instructors checked everyone was out. We’ll just […]
