On opening the curtains this morning, the sun of yesterday had disappeared but at least there was no rain on the horizon. Energy levels were boosted by the fresh-faced Miss Parrot and Mrs Paterson who were eager to tackle their first activity after their arrival last night.
Despite the excitement of our first day in Castleton, the children were soon fast asleep in their bunks last night. For many, the 7am wake up call was a bit of a shock and there were some bleary eyes wandering the corridors of the Hollowford Centre this morning.
After a little bit of a delayed start, Year 6 made good time up the M1 and arrived in Castleton just before lunch - ready and raring to go! With a little bit of teamwork, bags were transferred from the coaches to the waiting minibuses which then whisked our belongings off up to the Hollowford Centre.
