First group of the year – a big thanks to The Leys Primary for making it such a great week! We had a lovely week, working on teamwork, life skills and trying new things, and we gelled beautifully. By the end of the week it was like a well-oiled machine, with loads of excellent progress on being independent, so much so that the Friday morning departure-chaos was pretty minimal. Throughout the week the teamwork was a joy to behold -we even had some sort of magic on the first night as a completely blindfolded group managed to make a golf ball travel through our maze like it had some kind of homing device fitted! Not many lambs yet at the farm, but lots of really good questions that showed the children were really interested. Gorge walking was cold but taken in good spirits, canoeing was new for everybody but you wouldn’t think so for some in the end, and we all loved the cold crisp visit to the top of Twmpa. We also had snappy bushcraft sessions with really imaginative shelter designs, got to try a bit of climbing, walked in the dark, and had a go on the new low ropes course.
Thanks for a smashing week, surely this is a sign for the rest of this term!
