Today saw groups go out on the Canadian canoes and mountain biking. Such coordinated kids we have never seen before - who knew that if you paddled on one side, a canoe would go round in a circle??!! Endlessly!!
With three in a canoe, children had to assign themselves the roles of: looker, support and powerhouse. Unfortunately, the lookers failed to look very far at all and lots of crashes were had! With a superb instructor (George), the children enjoyed several games (ask them all about the penguin game!) before going off on an adventure across the lake. Mrs Sherlock and Mr Phelps made a formidable team until Erin, Melissa and co ploughed straight through them!

As well as our water-based activities, the children have all attempted the off-road mountain biking today. After an initial run through of safety procedures and bike checks, everyone was thrilled with having to don the latest in hi-vis fashion! They took off on a route that took them around the perimeter of the lake, through the beautiful botanical gardens, past the 'abandoned school' and ended up at small park at the far end of the complex.
