Robinwood – Day 2
Tuesday morning began with all the children being treated to a cooked breakfast before the morning activities began. From 9am, Year 6 were taking part in a wide range of tasks which tested their resilience, teamwork and cooperation skills. Highlights included problem-solving Crystal Maze style tasks in the Dungeon and the Crate Building Challenge. However, most challenging of all was the Piranha Pool, where groups had 40 minutes to complete a series of puzzles in order get themselves across a murky pool of water and out of their escape room, before a throng of bloodthirsty piranhas were released into the water below! Luckily all the children survived with arms and legs intact.
After a brisk lunch, Year 6 had the opportunity to buy treats and souvenirs from the tuck shop and have team photos on Lord Dobroyd’s grand staircase in the centre of the castle. Then it was straight back into action, with the children thriving in high-flying exploits on the Zipwire and the giant swing.
Tea tonight was a choice of pizza and pasta, before we finished the day with two more challenging tasks. All the children went to bed tired and happy with their day’s work.
