Day 1 - Wednesday 8th June 2022
Butlin’s – Wednesday 8th June 2022
Arriving at Butlin’s around 11:30am, we unpacked our luggage and headed straight to the beach for a picnic in the sun – despite the intermittent light showers. The children enjoyed having lunch on the beach and then we did a competition to find: the most animal like stone, the coolest stone and the nicest coloured stone.
After lunch we went to the funfair. Our first ride was the dodgems – which the children loved – and then we went on the swings JUST as it began to rain. The children thought it was hilarious that we had to run through the pouring rain to find shelter.
Having played a few inside games to keep us occupied we headed to our rooms and unpacked before having dinner.
With full stomachs, we headed off for ‘Butlin’s Make a Millionaire’ – a treasure hunt around the grounds. We split in to two teams and raced to find miscellaneous items around the camp. Both teams did really well and we ended up drawing before watching the ending couple of songs in a show in the big tent.
To conclude the evening we played a game of football whilst some children wrote in their diaries.
The children are currently settling down for bed after a long day – no doubt they’ll sleep well tonight!
