Wednesday - Middle of the week
Another eventful day in thick fog and mizzle! It was a slower start this morning but everyone enjoyed a much better night's sleep. After another mamoth breakfast session and morning assembly, two groups went out on a wild adventure day where we left the grounds of Heatree and walked out on to a wild and windy Dartmoor. We went poo trecking to work out what animals were there and we explored the vegetation that could be found growing wild. After a break stop, we walked to Hound Torr where we went rock scrambling - finding our way through small nooks and crannies in the granite rock structures. We had lunch on the torr and then gradually walked back to Heatree.
The other groups were either exploring the low adventure activity (in teh mud andt water tunnels) or abseiling and climbing. All the children again challenged themselves to go as far as they could - we are incerdibly proud of them. In the afternoon, there was raft building for some and archery for others - again some serious contenders for Robing Hood.
After a dinner of sausage and chips, followed by chocolate cake and chocolate sauce (the favourite meal so far this week), three groups enjoyed movie night and snacks whilst the other two groups went on a night walk and stopped for a snack in the woods.
Back at the house, it was hot chocolate before bed and lights went out at 10.15.
