Monday 21st January
Hello from Ingestre! All the children have settled in and had a go at making their beds. There were some interesting results, but with a bit of guidance and support, they all now have a bed to sleep in, that looks like a bed!
Following a tour of the building with their tutors, we all had a hearty dinner of sausage and mash with several children going up for seconds. This was followed by discussions about the wide variety of arts and then the children had their introductory session with their specialist tutors, getting to know them and starting to generate ideas and basic skills for their week's projects.
Tea was baked potatoes, beans, cheese and tuna toppings, followed by Sam's birthday treat and some chocolate crispie cakes. In the evening after tuck shop the children enjoyed watching The Lion King in the centre's cinema, before retiring to bed.
I'll try and get some pictures up tomorrow, but we are all looking forward to our first full day tomorrow.
