When we got on the coach we were so, so happy and excited this was our first residential ever. When we arrived Nick our guide showed us to our cabin. We made our bed, some were better then others after that we had lunch it was jacket potato.
After lunch we went orienteering we all enjoyed it - it involved a LOT of running some had to stop and rest - we started very easy but it got a lot harder.
After orienteering we had river study then we stopped to have a play. Everyone put a lot of clay on their face and pretended to be warriors. After that we had a camp fire.
The next day we went and dressed up as Ancient Iron Age warriors and made fire with this interesting tool. It was a lot of fun and we got to go in a roundhouse. it was built 10 years ago but it felt like it was built thousands of years ago, I loved it -thanks Nick! Then we went pond dipping I found a lot of fish and one shrimp. Yanna and Tahlia even found a newt then Nick taught us about the life cycle of a fish. Then we went to lunch, it was pizza; after lunch we said good bye to Nick and left on the coach it was very bumpy and pretty.
