This week in Everest we have had a great week filled with outdoor activities. We started our week at Equine Assisted Learning in the rain and the wind.
Our boys showed some serious resilience against the weather. They were still as keen as ever to get on their horses and get stuck in. Lee and Tristan did some work over obstacles in the field and are learning how to do rising trot.
On Tuesday the boys all went off site to Forest School. No ants were eaten this week (or so I am told…). Tristan, as ever, looked amazing in his camo gear. They also managed to bring back a stag’s skull which is going somewhere in the Everest house.
For the rest of the week we have done lots of outdoor play as a team. We have become a pretty good team at rounders and ever took on the girls on Friday. Charlie has discovered a love for nettle tea and seems to need to stock up on supplies daily.
We have been absolutely thrilled with the extension the work the boys have been taking on this week. All of them have been showing a serious interest in the Second World War which we are studying in English.
The Geckos continue to be a massive hit here. Lee is a pro at putting them to sleep by cuddling them and Charlie calls them ‘his babies’ and is in charge of feeding them and cleaning out the tank.
