Group 3 - Canoeing


Today we all changed activities and were looking forward to what we were up to after hearing stories from each other. The weather was much more favourable and we managed to stay much drier. We had a nice walk across a local hill and followed that in the afternoon with a walk through a river. If anyone sees any wellies floating down a river, they may have belonged to one of us before the strong water washed them off our feet. 

Our caving group were very brave and faced some of their fears in the caves. We have been supporting each other when we have felt nervous and praised one another for the way we have been tackling challenges.

The children who went canoeing worked well in teams to learn new skills and some of them even managed to paddle whilst standing up. It made the canoes a little more unstable though. As we were wearing buoyancy aids and the water wasn't too deep, we knew that we would be safe if we did fall in.


Our evening was spent competing in an orienteering competition around the house. We looked at our map to work out where the symbols were hidden in the building and had to write down the letters at each location.
