Cyprus Blog - Day Three

Everyone was a little more rested this morning although still needing a gentle wakeup.  The children were more adventurous with their breakfast and tried croissants for the first time.  We boarded the bus and 5 minutes later we had reached the back of the hotel!  The bus refused to move so Mr B went down to have a look, unfortunately he wasn’t keen on getting his clothes dirty today so they called for a new bus. Before we knew it, we were at school for the presentations from each country. First the year 3 welcomed the Polish and shared what they had learnt about Poland.  Poland then showed us their presentation.  Next the Spanish demonstrated some Flamenco dancing and a traditional dance whilst playing the castanets. The dancing was superb.  The year 2 children sang the Steps song ‘Don’t stop never give up’ and were very interested with our presentation wanting to know all about Appleby Horse Fair.  The next part of the morning gave the children time to visit classes whilst the teachers set up a display about England.  The Cypriot children came to visit the display and ask questions about England.  For lunch we had chicken and fruity salad. Chloe enjoyed the oranges and kiwi.  A popular meal as all the plates were empty.   Back to the hotel for a cool down with more pool action.  As it was still feeling hot we went on an ice cream hunt.  On our way we found a fig tree so we sampled a fresh fig. The girls thought they were quite tasty.   We soon found ice cream and walkedto the beach whilst eating them.  It appears Chloe still needs a few lessons on how to eat an ice cream without wearing most of it. Next, we hopped on the bus along to the marina for dinner.  The children ate traditional Greek Kebabs in pitta followed by more ice cream.  They promised to brush their teeth really well when we got back.  We finished the evening with a stroll along the marina front.  Mr B found the water fountains and encourage the children to run through the fountain whilst the water stopped.  He managed to get through and stay dry.  This was more than could be said for most of the children.  Whilst waiting for the bus the children played a clapping game which including some local children waiting for the bus.  The children have shown more confidence today joining in with the Polish and Spanish children and making new friendships. Another great day full of friendship and new experiences. We can’t believe how quickly the week is flying by.   Tomorrow we are looking forward to visiting the mountains.
