Residential - first full day
What a busy day! After breakfast, two groups went climbing and abseiling where we were all challenged to do as much as we could. Two groups went raft building where all the building was successful yet some chose to jump in the pond afterwards - it was cold! The final group tried out the low adventure where mud and scrambling were the order of the day.
After showers (for those that needed them) and lunch, the climbing groups went raft building where again there was amazing team work and cooperation evident and some chose to jump in the water. The raft builders went climbing and some children amazed themselves at overcoming their fears. The low adventure group showed their Robin Hood credentials on the archery field.
A lovely evening meal of chicken pie followed by syrup sponge and custard was enjoyed by everyone before three groups went out on a night walk and two groups stayed in for movie night.
A late night snack and hot chocolate saw them all ready for bed. At 10.15pm lights out, some were already fast asleep. Everyone had a good night's sleep.
