High spirits on Dartmoor

Pixies Holt

3B set off after school in torrential rain but it didn’t dampen our spirits and everyone was very excited. On our arrival the Pixies staff welcomed everyone and treated us to excellent food as usual (there were lots of seconds, thirds and even a few fourth helpings!).

Saturday brought sunshine which made the weaselling and climbing even more fun. All the pupils were fantastic at getting stuck in and it turned out we had some superb climbers in the group who sped off at rocket speeds up the routes.

3B are great walkers and managed the Saturday and Sunday routes with ease and everyone had the opportunity to get to know one another. On Saturday night, the pupils got together in teams and built a range of fantastic balloon chairs for Dr Rowland to try out, some even came with footstools!

Form teacher Amelia Johnson said: “Overall, we had a wonderful time learning so much about each other and having lots of fun at the same time.”
