Waterpark Day 4

Filed under: Year 6 Memories

Green Group had a lovely morning sailing down Lake Coniston on the catamarans. They learnt how to steer the boat using the force of the wind. When they arrived at their destination they had a lovely picnic in the sunshine and enjoyed an ice cream. They then walked down the side of Lake Coniston enjoying the countryside. The final part of their journey day was spent back on the lake where they sailed back to Waterpark for a lovely tea.

Blue group sailed on Lake Coniston first thing this morning learning how to become budding sailors, with some children zooming across the lake using the wind to propel them. Luckily no boats capsized and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the new experience.  Another wet afternoon followed with the children kayaking on the lake learning different methods of paddling.  The highlight of the afternoon was launching the kayaks off the jetty with the children inside them.  Once again no one capsized….What an amazing day Team Wetherlam!

The red group had a fantastic morning kayaking out on Lake Coniston, learning how to use their paddle to navigate along the water and through the wind. When they arrived at their destination, they enjoyed team games of kayak netball and world domination. They were able to practise their skills and had lots of fun, with only two capsizes! To finish off their morning session, the children slid down a canoe balanced on the jetty – it made a perfect slide and they got very wet. After lunch, we adventured through the woods and made our way to a local rock face. Harnessed up and raring to go, the children were extremely brave and resilient whilst they manoeuvred themselves towards the top, giving them all a spectacular view of the whole of Lake Coniston. All in all a perfect day!

Pink group took on an amazing challenge today – they walked to the top of the Old Man of Coniston!  The group arrived at the foot of the mountain at 11am and then made their way to the top with a few stops on the way and a lunch break by a beautiful tarn.  The children were so tired yet still soldiered on to make it to the top.  The children were very proud of themselves, as was I!  It took us 1 hour 40 minutes to get up there with our 20 minute lunch break (the fastest Year 6 group our instructor has ever had!)  With our record time we had time to walk down the far side of the mountain to take in the scenic view and have our second lunch by a second tarn.  In all we walked 10km and climbed a height of 500m…amazing!
