Early start with the year 4 girls waking up at 4:44am! They were promptly sent back to bed. A big choice of cereal and a cooked breakfast set the children up for an action packed day of activities. The weather has been warm and sunny which has been enjoyed by everyone. All the children have taken part in Problem Solving, Low Ropes, Jacobs Ladder and Challenge Course. You can see from the photos how much fun the children have had and all the activities required team work and communication. As always the instructors have been great encouraging all children to reach their potential. It goes without saying, we have been very well fed today!
Arrived at Caythorpe and met our leader Callum who showed us to our accommodation. The children chose a bed and unpacked their luggage. We then went straight to lunch which was burger, chips, salad and a nice fruit pudding. The children have all done two activities this afternoon Quad biking and climbing. After dinner the children had the opportunity to go to the shop to buy some sweets and then went off to their evening activity Catch the Flag. We are looking forward to a quiet night but have heard a rumour about a party in one of the rooms!
After a hearty breakfast of bacon, beans and tomatoes the children set off to their first activity. These included Giant Swing and Sensory Trail. The children were harnessed into the swing and hoisted by their team before being launched into the next county!!!!!! Some good team work was seen when blindfolded for the Sensory Trail, an excellent exercise in team work and communication.
During the afternoon the activities were Vertical Challenge and Survivor. The Vertical Challenge is roughly 20m high and was climbed in blustery conditions, congratulations to the children who reached the top and a brilliant effort was made by all. Survivor involved different scenarios drawing on survival techniques including den building, camouflage and alarm raising. We are just about to set off for the camp fire.
We will see you tomorrow on our return.
Arrived safely and we were introduced to George our leader who’s been teaching us many ‘sing it after me songs’. After a tour around the site and games on the lawn it was then time for dinner. The choices were fish, pork loin chops and mushroom ravioli with chips, vegetable and unlimited visits to the salad bar. There was cheesecake and fresh fruit to follow. Everyone went back to their rooms to unpack their suitcases ready for tonight’s activity ‘ambush’!!!!!!! Early start tomorrow breakfast at 7:30 ready for activities including Jacobs ladder and vertical challenge. Lets hope the children have a good nights sleep!!!!!
