Action stations at the activity centre! Form 6 were put through their paces on day three of their Yorkshire residential with a thorough workout on low ropes, Jacob’s ladder and parallel poles. And some thought they had come for a week of leisure! Now beginning to feel battered and bruised, Form 6 are getting a taste of life TRULY outside the classroom… Here follows their reflections on today’s experiences:
Four challenges, four tasks.
Surely, that’s not much to ask?
A tree climb, daunting and daring,
Hand blocks positioned, crazily challenging
Fifty feet into the air,
Looking so high it gives you a scare.
Yet it’s awesome at the top,
Feeling at home, despite a fifty foot drop.
Team building: carnage: a work in progress
Consisting of pipes and balls and water – let’s not digress.
Low ropes were wobbly and balancing was tough,
Shaking Mr Lewis off was difficult enough.
Jacob’s ladder, stupendously scary,
Parallel poles, at time it was hairy.
A challenge, really fun, paired work to achieve
The very highest beam – boy were we relieved.
Hearts a thumping,
Yet with Steve and Rory to guide and advise
Form 6 worked to gain personal pride!
A great day was had by all at Dalby Forest Activity Centre our thanks go to Steve, Rory and Richard.
