The first activity was verbal and non-verbal communication, it was little games such as the wheelbarrow race and leap-frog. Secondly we went over to bridge-building - this involved mental skills. We were given 20 straws, Blu-Tack and a piece of string. We had 25 minutes to come up with a thrilling bridge design. In the end, to test whether it was a pass, our coach ran a toy truck over it…..my group had passed! It was a steady bridge! Next we headed over to boot camp, in my eyes this was the hardest activity out of the lot. It included weightlifting, press-ups, running etc; everyone was so tired!
After lunch we gathered together for the final event as a year group. Relays! I love running so I was extremely excited. We were put into teams and the races began - running, hopping, jumping - everyone was breathless, however very overjoyed. The day was nearly over, there was only one thing left, the awards! I happily received a medal for my running along with others. The aim of the day had obviously worked; I made loads of new friends, I was tired but the enjoyment was immense!
