Day 2 at Lockerbie Manor

Day two was action packed.  With an early wake up call and an extremely filling full English breakfast everyone was raring to go.  Again, we were lucky with mild weather conditions for this time of year. 

2 of the 4 groups went canoeing this morning to the oldest Lock in Scotland, which was a whopping 1.5km in length.  In threes everyone got to grips with how to paddle and control the canoe, facing the elements and some of the instructors crazy tasks, like jumping up and down in the canoe and switching from one canoe to another.  Everyone loved it and said it was their favourite activity.

Other groups took part in the verrrry muddy obstacle course; climbing under and over tyres and wooden frames, which everyone enjoyed.  Zip wire was another favourite and all the children loved zooming down the 15 metre line. 

The evening challenged those who still had the energy to dance at Lockerbie Manor disco night.  This time was a great opportunity for Shavington Primary children to mix with Lockerbie Primary where they were able to exchange their dance moves!

Looking forward to our last few sessions tomorrow and we think year 6 will be ready for hometime as they've worn themselves out...
