Water Park Day 2

Posted by Mr Waywell on Jun-26-2018

After a sunny first day and lots of exercise, most children were asleep by 10:30 last night.

Today children had to wake to make their own pack lunches at 7:30.   Everyone managed and then we tucked into a cooked breakfast before today’s activities.

Pink group began the day with some ghyll scrambling.  All of the group got stuck in as they climbed up the ghyll with lots of opportunities to jump in the water.   Teachers were very impressed with the effort made and teamwork (though they pretended it had sharks…with some of the children believing them!)  In the afternoon they took part in some high ropes.  Again the group were very brave and gave it their best shot in climbing the totem pole and the wrecking ball.  So many overcame their fears with everyone jumping off the wrecking ball.

Blue group also began the day with some ghyll scrambling.  Again they all embraced the activity, climbing quickly, jumping in all of the pools and impressed the leaders with their determination so much that the group were challenged to climb the last part of the ghyll.  Everyone who wanted to got into harnesses and used ropes to climb to the top.  Once there, they slid down a large stone into a pool of water.  (I did it and know how scary it was…so those who did were very brave!)  In the afternoon we got some tandem canoes and paddled down Lake Coniston with some stop-offs to play games.  With the beautiful weather it was a lovely day out!

Red group began their day with the high ropes.  They also did the totem pole and Mrs Whitehead was really impressed at how the children overcame their fears and tried to stretch themselves.   The group then had fun on the low-rope assault course.  In the afternoon the group also went into the ghyll.   The team work was brilliant and Mrs Whitehead added that they were so thoughtful of each other’s feelings and supporting each other.

Everyone is now eating enchiladas for tea then we’re off to play games tonight.
