Today we put all the skills we have learnt in to practice, we took part in the adventure race which consisted of ten challenges:
pioneering, outdoor cooking, up and over, abseiling, river scramble, postman's walk, tunnel crawl, map location, mud crawl, retrieving our flags (from the other side of the river) and flying our flag.
This was a very close race with minutes in it between the teams. This week Westcliff teams all completed the challenge in record time, finishing an hour earlier than any other teams this year. This was due to how well they worked together, communicated with each other, listened and encouraged each other.
A great 3 days was had by all.
Today we took part in a rock scramble, rock climbing, weaselling, pioneering and up and over. We had a very adventurous day.
All the skills we learn will be used in the Adventure Race.
Today we arrived and had time to settle in, we had lunch and were soon getting ready for our first activity, a river scramble. This was good fun and very wet! In the evening we took part in outdoor cooking. We made cakes in a bag for our pudding.
Great nights sleep! Here they are eating breakfast and getting ready for the days action. Climbing, abseiling, weaselling and pioneering.
