After a very quick change, the children were given the challenge of building their own rafts and floating them in the outdoor pool.
Each group was given equipment such as barrels, rope and planks of wood and they had to work as a team. The idea was for them to listen to each other and share their ideas.
Once the rafts were built they had to wear life jackets and safety helmets before they entered the pool. Unfortunately, most of the rafts fell apart once on the water, but the children walked across the pool with all the parts of the raft.
The children had a great time, even though the water was ‘quite cold’. After racing back to change, the groups dressed ready for the climbing walk and the Gladiator rope course. All of our children have faced every challenge and have been successful, even when they thought things were beyond them. Some have shown great leadership potential and others have shown they can work within a team.
