Time for us to go home. This morning we all tested negative and are currently on our journey home, still expected to arrive in time for the end of the school day.
We have just left Oxford services and are still on track to be back at school by the end of the school day.
Just joined the M25 at the M40 junction.
Soon to be joining the M11. Expected arrival time is now 3:30pm
Just left the the M11 and joined the A406.
We have now joined the A13 at Beckton. Traffic is currently moving slowly.
Traffic got moving and we just turned off the A13. We are now by Asda.
We had a review of our time in Trewern. We don't just come to Trewern to experience new activities, we also try to develop independence, cooperation, a positive attitude and some life skills as well. Here are some of the comments that were made by the children.
- I was surprised I could wake up so early, maybe I will go to bed earlier when I get home.
- When my mum gives me new food, I won't try it, but I did at Trewern.
- I normally wouldn't be able to go a day without my phone.
- I got a much better night's sleep at Trewern.
- I made more friends here because we were communicating.
- When I got on the coach I was crying, but when I got here I was glad I got here, it was fun.
- I'm not used to staying without my parents. In here was different, I felt better. I had friends.
- I was surprised because I wasn't worried about my dog.
- Not having electronics brought us together more.
- I've made friends with someone in maths class. I've realised how funny and supportive she is.
- I like the interactions with people you don't normally talk to.
- I was surprised that I was able to get up in five minutes.
- I thought I would miss my family but I didn't because I was busy.
- We got to see more of people's personalities.
- The think my mum will be surprised because I tried the fish.
- It was nice when people were encouraging and helping each other.
The Trewern staff were very complimentary about our children and it was said that they were their best group in a long time. They were able to talk to them in ways beyond their years. It was also said how organised they were.
They really represented our shool well. The children worked successfully with many different people and kept trying their hardest, even when they felt like giving up. They were very organised around the house and were thinking ahead. We have been very proud of how they represented themselves and the school and all of us are thankful that their parents and carers have been able to enable them to have a very memorable experience.
