Don’t worry about a thing.

Don’t worry about a thing has been our motto this week.


Healthy body, healthy mind.

We did an assault course in P.E. and parachute games.

We have visited the forest and collected sticks and bark to make a lovely Easter story scene about Jesus’ last week; the children were really enthusiastic and we talked about how Jesus must have felt on his last day. If you need any extra support you will find learning links on the main school blog page.

Take care everyone.

We will leave you with a little piece of happiness, hope it makes you smile as it did us.

Our last night reflections…

“We didn’t realise we were making memories ,we just knew we were having fun”.

Last night we were inspired to experience more of our Wild and Free opportunities making fires, star gazing, night-time nature walking and toasting marshmallows over a campfire. It’s been such an achievement for all the children to stay away from home.


They have been superstars. It’s been a massive honour to have experienced this with your children. Thank you!

“Always remember you are braver than than you believe

Stronger than you seem

Smarter than you think

And twice as beautiful  as you ever imagined . “

Bendrigg Group 1-Day 2

Today’s activities included zipwire, rock climbing, snake slide and abseiling.

The cracking comments just kept on coming !!

“My confidence is growing like a snowball rolling down a hill.”

“This is the best experience of my life.”

“I found my brave.”

“I wish Ladywood was at Bendrigg all the time… can we stay another night?”

The highlights for the adults have been the friendships and teamwork that have really flourished and all their smiles are real. Lifelong memories to treasure. The children have really shown determination and perseverance. We hope Group 2 have as much fun as we have had . We love Bendrigg!
