Y6 Residential – Day 2

Wow! What a full on adventurous second day we have all had. The continuous rain has not put a stop to any of us or any of the activities that were planned for today.

After the first full night’s sleep everyone appeared ready and eager for a full English breakfast. All ate well, with a few strange combinations of food!

Today’s activities consisted of caving, high ropes and climbing.

Caving through Europe’s wettest, muddiest caves- kissing ‘Bishops Bottom’ for good luck, scrambling through the ‘Maggot Hole’ and squeezing through the ‘Cheese Press’  – culminating in a final mud slide!

High Ropes consisted of 21 different challenges through the trees including a zip wire. Lots of support and encouragement was given throughout, to all groups, with lots of children feeling a great sense of achievement in taking part.

Once transported to the climbing site, climbing began with the children being taught the key skills of belaying and tailoring before ascending the Leigh Tor rock face. The groups ended their day with a trek back to the site, fighting their way through the rain but keeping their spirts high. Luckily the ice cream man came to the rescue on their way home!

After some welcome, warm, showers we were all ready to eat again!:-) A fantastic dinner of pasta bolognaise gave us all the sustenance needed to complete the orienteering challenge… before retiring to bed.
