Year 6 - Day 2 Residential Trip 2017

Day 2

After a good night’s sleep (NOT!!!) we were ready for a hearty breakfast. This set us up nicely for our daily activities.

Katakanu

Walking for three hours (well, 20 minutes), we got to the lake and kitted up. Six in a boat, speeding across the waves, around the island and on to the glory of the finish line (after a brief pause to release some liquid from the red boat). Difficult at first but we soon got into a rhythm and will be rowing for GB at the next Olympics. How did we feel at the end? DRENCHED!

Climbing Wall

A challenging, vertical climb awaited us after lunch. “I was very scaresited,” said Rory (don’t ask). But it was exciting and a bit scary – a lot scary for some. But we all had a go anyway. Looking down made us feel like we were on top of the world, but we were just on top of the climbing wall (well some of us were).

Abseiling

None of us wanted to do it. Most of us did it. Most of us wanted to do it again. Standing at the top leaning backwards was petrifying, but we were determined to face our fear right in the eyes. Soon enough we were walking backwards down the vertical wall of terror. The feeling after we had got to the bottom was exhilarating, and we all felt like champions.

 

The staff have been impressed by our sense of teamwork and encouragement for each other and all in all, it has been another great day. Gregory even found a couple of new friends (Brecon Bear and Acorn).
