6S residential Day 3
Wednesday 5th June | 7 comments
After a good night’s sleep, we had three quick activities in the morning in place of the planned canoeing due to wind speed.
Children spent 30-40 minutes on an orienteering activity and then spent a similar amount of time working together on a climb and a short bit of caving. The caving included a very tight crawl that was too much for some but lots of children managed it. Have a look at the video below to see why some children found it a step too far…
This was a terrific group who really tried hard and were impressively brave and courageous. They were good humoured and excellent company. They can all be proud of their many achievements. They were supportive of each other and any teasing (as seen in the caving video below) was gentle and affectionate.
We hope that the children bought all their belongings home: we had a few soggy girls’ socks that no-one claimed that got disposed of. We did bring back what looked like brand new, unworn H&M swimming shorts and gloves that none of the boys claimed to know anything about… We hope you have found their bags of soggy, dirty clothes and that they weren’t too smelly!

A very small cave right next to our camp (poor Ryan: at least he was brave enough to do it!)
Many thanks to Mr Garlick, Mrs Barraclough and Mrs Elam for coming along and supporting the children so well.
