After a cold, wet, muddy start to the day, the team have had another amazing day at Caythorpe! They started off in an activity in underground tunnels, which they loved, then went abseiling! Despite nerves, both Annabelle
and Archie demonstrated incredible determination to combat their fears and complete the challenge....sterling effort both of you! During the afternoon the activities were Jacob's Ladder, which Mr Gooding arrived in time to see (and when the sun finally appeared!) ... and a mental agility challenge of Problem-Solving. During the problem-solving task, the quieter members of the group really shone and the usually more vocal children realised that listening was the key to completing the challenge successfully...so a great learning exercise! Mrs Ray was very, very impressed with the level of teamwork displayed by all during this activity.
Tomorrow morning the agenda is 'High Ropes' in the trees, and 'Rifles'- Wow! The group will be departing after lunch and will arrive back in school when they are able to go home immediately if you are able to collect them. Mrs Ray will stay in school until 3.30pm to supervise any children who need to remain in school until then.
Our Y6s have truly shone during this visit- Mrs Ray says they have ALL been stars, so supportive of each other, coped with challenges admirably and risen to all challenges! We are all very proud of you Y6 2014 - Well Done!
As I write, they are playing football in Onesies -including Rory -and Owen G is sporting his Dinosaur Onesie and woolly hat! I think Mrs Ray may have taught them some new card games too! I heard them all shout hello in the background, and they all sounded very happy! We look forward to hearing all about their adventures tomorrow!!!!
