Today was a great day we did: canoeing, rock climbing, zip wire, assault course and a very good talent show.
During canoeing, we built two canoes , we co-operated by working together to get across the lake for little competitions. These were catching balls and racing to Buoys.
Secondly, we went to rock climbing and only a few of us made it to the top.This was really hard because other people had to hold us up.
Next,we did an assault course which got us so muddy but there was a small version of the zip wire. That boosted our confidence to go on the bigger zip wire.
After, it was time to go and try the huge zip wire. Our hearts was racing when I got up there. Suddenly, Nigel counted down from 3.2.1.It went past so quick,before we knew it, the zip wire was over.
In the evening the fun really began. The talent show. We walked into the dark room as the stage suddenly lite up, the host , Cher, Emma and Melissa, started the show. The judges, Alicia, Simon and our very own A, Man, Der. After the first act we had a very special guest appearance, Mr David Walliams. We had around 16 amazing acts that preformed for us. They were so talented. We had boy bands, expressive dance and many more, let's just say, interesting acts - it was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
Later, we finished the day off with a nice hot chocolate and a chat about the days ahead of us.
Then we went to bed and went straight to sleep 😉.
CHER, AIMEE AND INDIA.
Thursday 26th January
Today was an amazing day. First of all we set off in a mini bus ready to Ghyll scramble. When we arrived at our destination we had a look at all of the birds that were being fed in a hut. Then we went down to the Ghyll where we were started to climb up the stream.Jagged rocks surrounded us as we climbed up the powerful stream.Then we saw a dead sheep with it's head separated from it's body still covered in flesh.As we reached the end of journey we saw a water filter with powered a turbine.Finally, we reached the end of the morning and then walked back to the mini van.
After lunch, we did archery which was so fun🙂! As our group leader (Mr Kelly) joined in. Also we had a small tournament which was so great. However, Mr Kelly won 🙁😦! Nigel our instructor taught us how to use a bow & arrow. Then we had to go to Ghyll Head's humongous garden this was where we would find our next task.
Orientating. First we were given a map so we could do this activity. We used the map to help us navigate the location of the stamps. It was hard to navigate but we kept going some groups found seven stamps. When the bell went it signalled that the activity was over. It was a great last full day at Ghyll head.
