This morning, Barassie Primary School P7 pupils arrived at Lapwing Lodge to join us for their residential camp. We started by making our beds and unpacking before heading out onto the field for some team building games. We had lots of fun with blind samurais, ninjas, giant rock, paper and scissors and group portraits.
We had filled French baguettes for lunch and then headed out again for some bigger team-building challenges. We had to lower the magical stick to the ground, pass the stick across the river, ski across dry land and even get our team through a spider web.
Then we had a game of Capture the Flag. The teams battled hard to steal the flag with lots of sneaking through the forest, lots of prison breaks and even a shoe lost in the mud! The red team were victorious.
After drying off a bit, we went to the sports hall to play extreme dodgeball. We had to protect our kings and queens, knock down the skittles and even get Indiana Jones’ treasure to the chest.
Tonight, we had Mexican nachos and fajitas for dinner, with French apple pie, or tarte aux pommes, and ice cream for dessert. We had some free time in the sports hall and games room before starting our evening activity.
Our egg-streme games kicked off with lots of silly mini challenges. Some people had to get a Jaffa Cake from their foreheads to their mouths, peel bananas with their feet, model balloon animals or even cover their faces with post-it notes! We had some quiz rounds too to gain points for our teams.
We ended the evening by transferring points into materials to build an egg protection. We built brilliant egg parachutes and tomorrow we’ll be dropping them from the roof! If they survive, we get to break the egg over the head of a mentor! We can’t wait!
We are now all tucked up in bed and ready for another action-packed day tomorrow!
