On Tuesday all of the children went a day walk. The red and blue groups went a walk to the KIng’s Caves and the green group went to Coire Fhionn Lochan. The walks were really interesting and we got to do lots of fun activities on them like lighting fires and toasting marshmallows. On Tuesday night we went rock pooling at the front of the centre. We found all kinds of interesting wildlife such as starfish, crabs and limpets. We also learned about the work that is being done by COAST to protect the sea life around the Isle of Arran.
Today the children all got to experience the climbing wall and also got to go gorge walking. The green group were split in half so the boys joined the red group and the girls the blue. Everyone tried their best on the climbing wall and most of us got to the top. We all had an amazing time gorge walking. We got the chance to walk up waterfalls, swim in the river, slide down rock slides into deep pools and also make a 7ft jump into the water. It was amazing!
Here is what the children liked about the last couple of days.
Katie: I felt very brave when I jumped off the 7ft drop into a pool of freezing cold water. I was proud but a bit cold.
Nicola: I loved the gorge walking. It was freezing cold to start with but got warmer after that. I got to slide down the rocks into the water. I was really happy!
Sam: I really enjoyed climbing the rocks using my knees, hands and feet. I jumped 7ft into a pool of water. It was exhilarating.
Viviann: I loved the gorge walking. It was tricky because the rocks were slippy. I slid down the rocks and jumped into the water. I felt excited and happy.
Ethan: I really enjoyed the gorge walking even though I got really wet and fell five times. I loved sliding down the waterfall. I felt proud.
Kayleigh: I felt really proud today because I slid down a waterfall and jumped 7ft into a pool of freezing cold water.
Sophie: Yesterday we climbed a mountain and reached the top. I jumped on the stepping stones and slipped into the water. I felt soggy and heavy./ I kept laughing because everyone else tried it and ended up just as wet!
David: I enjoyed my climb to Coire Fhionn Lochan. I couldn’t believe that I could climb so high and make my way back down. I felt very proud that I managed it.
Jasmine: Today we went climbing and I managed to climb to the top of the climbing wall. I felt nervous when I had to belay for Nicola because I had to make sure she didn’t fall. I felt glad I didn’t drop my friend.
