Y6 Karpaz Residential Trip Blog/Day 4

We have all woken up a little sleepy on our last morning of Karpaz as yesterday was so busy!

Yesterday, the children visited the monastery in Dipkarpaz and learnt about the history of the site. The children showed excellent listening skills and asked thoughtful questions; afterwards they created detailed drawings of different aspects of the monastery. They were also able to fill their water bottles up from the 'fountain of eternal youth' and hear the story as to why it was there. Finally, the children were able to buy a well-deserved treat of a yummy ice cream.

We also spent some time on the beach. The children tested the floating vessels which had created yesterday, and we were amazed to see every single one floated! We also set the children a sand sculpturing competition and had some amazing results. The children worked so well together and created some beautiful sculptures. After that, we tested their strength in tug-of-war and played team games on the beach.

After washing all the sand off, we had our scrumptious final dinner with Hasan and then sat in our seats ready to watch the talent show. The adults were so impressed with the variety and standard of talent that was shown in this year's show! We were so entertained!! Finally, we all had a little dance at the disco and finished the evening with a hot chocolate.

We started to share some of our best memories so far and it was lovely to hear all the moments that the children have enjoyed! Everyone has had a fantastic trip and we are excited to see what activities are happening this morning!

There are still so many photos to show you! Children are welcome to bring their memory sticks in to save them all on!

We are aiming to return back to school around 2:30pm. The buses will drop the children off by the south-facing green area where the school buses park so you can collect your child from there. If you would like your child to get the school bus home, please inform the school before 2:00pm so they can let the drivers know.
