Excited, impatient, enthusiastic- all of Amber class waited beautifully on the hill admiring other classes ice skating building up excitement.
We then then changed out of our shoes to skates and waited patiently around the edge of the ice rink for our go.
As soon as we were allowed on the ice all of Amber class gave it their best to be like Torvill and Dean. Unfortunately, it was so much harder than it looked! Everyone gave it a good shot with lots of perseverance shown throughout. Many of Amber class began using the penguins to stand, and by the end were enjoying skating around without one.
The photo above shows how much carnage was on the ice at times. One child struggling with the penguin and ten other people either already on the floor from a nasty fall or on their way down. I also took to the ice and unfortunately it wasn’t for me.
Most importantly though, throughout the whole session there was a smile on everyone’s face and it was great to have such fun. Well done Amber class.
