All children took part in Tunnel Trail at different points during the day within their individual groups. During this activity the children got to explore various sizes of tubes and tunnels and use these to work together to help teammates through the tunnels from the outside using only instructions to direct them. They played various games inside the tunnel such as infected and code finding challenges.
Group 1 and 2 took part in Aeroball, Giant Swing and Survivor challenge where the children got to test their survival skills building a shelter, carving tent pegs and making fire with flint and steel.
Whilst group 3 and 4 built buggies, abseiled and completed the challenge course, they all worked really well as a team to complete the course together without losing their lives.
After reading letters from home and visiting the shop to spend the last of their pocket money the children took part in wacky races. They got to be zombies, lay eggs and make a longest line they could for their team to beat the others. Great teamwork was demonstrated by all.
