Y6 Residential – Day 1

Day 1 – River Dart

After a long and soggy motorway journey we were greeted by the welcoming staff at River Dart. No rest for the wicked, bags off and straight into the welcome briefing before a hearty lunch of ham, egg and chips.

Round Robin activity saw everyone charging around the grounds, swinging on zip wires, jumping over obstacles and the inevitable dunking in the leat, pleased to say everyone joined in and there were many giggles heard.

With a final hurray of the rope swing and a little splash in the lake for Mrs Atkinson, we set off to warm up with a shower in our rooms.

Dinner – which included chocolate cake for pudding – gave us the boost we needed for the Hemsbury Walk, a good 4 mile round trip to the site of the Fort, thank fully the rain had eased and everybody was delivered safely to bed.
