Here is a wee comment from each of our P7’s about their experiences so far.
Finlay – I did the cat-walk this week, it was really high and we had to climb up
a tree and then walk along a beam. Then we could jump off the beam or hang off. It was
really good and fun. It felt quite scary when I got to the top because I didn’t think it
would feel that high – but it did!
Thomas – Hi Mum and Dad. I really enjoyed the tree climb. We had to climb up a tree which
was twice the height of the cat walk. Half way up I didn’t think I could go any more and
only wanted to do a few more steps but Mrs Hay and my group encouraged me to do it
and get all the way to the top to ring the bell. I felt relieved when I returned
to the ground!
Dillon – Yesterday I did the mohawk walk with my team. It is a team building
activity where you have to work together to figure out how to get across the
low-wire obstacle course. I kind of liked the activity, I had a new experience
and I’m pleased that I tried it because now I know that I like it.
Euan – Yesterday I did the night-line activity and I really enjoyed it because it
was a fun, new experience. Also, Mrs Hay gave me a pile of muddy pine needles and
because I was under sleep-shade I didn’t know what it was but I did know that my
hand was then very muddy.
Ben – Earlier in the week I did the mohawk walk, it was really fun and it was a
team-building activity where everyone in my group had to work together to solve
the problem of how to get across the wire. I really enjoyed this activity and
I think my team did really well.
Jack – I did archery this week and we were taught different safety rules and
how to use a bow and arrow. I hit the target board three times. I really enjoyed
it and would like to do it again.
Cameron – Yesterday I did the night-line walk, I really enjoyed it and we were
blind-folded so we couldn’t see where we were going. I walked into lots of trees
and fell over lots of times. Mrs Hay put pine needles down my back because I kept
peeking out of my uncomfortable, wet and soggy goggles.
Today is our last day and our pupils are taking part in a mixture of the following
activities – the day hike, tree climbing, archery, cat walk, raft-building, night-line
and the mohawk walk. Tonight is also the disco and we are all excited for it!
