This week's trip day involved a drive down the road to Robin Hood's Wheelgate Theme Park. And what a day it's been! We just wish we had more time in a day to visit every one of the attractions. We skipped from zone to zone making use of all of the activities in each from the play parks, the ball pits, the vertical slides, the rides, the water park and we even had time to pet a few goats! Without a doubt one of the highlights of the day was watching Team Extreme perform their BMX, Scooter, Skateboard and Rollerblade show. It had out hearts racing as they performed their tricks and it the first time a lot of the children (and even some of the staff)...

Hoodwinked 2018 is a trail through the heart of Nottingham to find the 33 robins that are "a modern-day take on the traditional stories of our mischievous outlaw outwitting the Sheriff of Nottingham with skills of camouflage and cunning." with a number of name relating to Nottingham such as "Ay up me duck", "Lacework" and "Goose Fair, Goose Fowl". Today, we took the kids on the trail in 2 different groups to see which group could find the most robins. They 2 groups set off in different directions as the trail can be done starting from any of the 33 robins. They both took their maps and set off for 2 hours before meeting again in the Old Market Square for lunch and then continued...
