Today, it poured, and poured and poured and carried on pouring but our Y6 children were a real credit to the school and to their parents.  We were not able to have any of our planned fresh air and run around breaks and kept busy all day listening and looking!  Staff received several positive comments from members of the public, tour guides and people in shops about the behaviour and courtesy of our pupils AND how interested and knowledgeable they are!  It really is a pleasure being here with such a super group, even in the rain!!!
Tonight at the Youth Hostel we have missed our usual cricket, football, parachute and wide games in the grounds but have kept well occupied with lots of different activities going on, a film and of course the England football match!  Tea was much enjoyed by all with lots of empty plates.  We have been fortunate that the other school are at the theatre this evening so we have had the whole hostel to ourselves - a big help. This is the largest group we have taken away with all of Y6 here - all 61 of them plus 8 staff!  See the very cosy bedtime story - Roald Dahl - biscuits and drinking chocolate :)
Today we enjoyed the tour of Shakespeare's Birthplace followed by 3 hours spent in the theatre looking at the exhibitions - look out for the gory hand and the costumes - and with a behind the scenes tour. 
The weather forecast is better for tomorrow. We are heading off to the drama studio in the morning for the RSC workshop on Midsummer's Night Dream.  Next will be a picnic on the river trip and a visit to the butterfly farm. We hope we can go the GREAT adventure park before returning to the hostel for tea - then back for the Stratford Town Walk with ghostly tales before collapsing, I am sure, into bed!  Everybody is well and happy! :)
