Another week has passed already and the children have just completed their second week in the UK and what a week! Let’s find out what they have been up to:
Monday was an exciting trip to Rochester Fire Station. The children tried out the uniforms and the equipment. Were treated to a fish and chip lunch. And cooled off in the afternoon sun with the water hoses.
On Tuesday, the children enjoyed an Easter egg hunt (well, why not!), horse riding and a picnic.
On Wednesday, it was time to hit the beach at Broadstairs! Belarus is a landlocked country and so for our new children this was their first time seeing the sea. What a picture on their faces!
On Thursday, they had a science fun day, featuring kitchen science, chromotography and bottle rockets.
Finally, on Friday the children had a fabulous day of activities at St Thomas of Canterbury School.
Phew, I think after that week they will be needing some rest!
We are very grateful to everyone who has helped us make this visit happen. We could not do this without the amazing support of so many people and organisations that donate money, time, services, activities, equipment and so much more. Big or small, everything is appreciated and you are all amazing. Just look at those happy faces and what you have achieved! Thank you.
