Year 6 enjoy their trip to Lockerbie Manor
After waving goodbye to the rain in Blackburn, Year 6 arrived safely at Lockerbie and were soon showing true Westholme spirit competing in a wide range of activities from: crate stacking, zooming down a zip wire, initiative games and racing round an obstacle course. A crate day was had by all!
On day two, the sun continued to shine brightly and the sky was clear. The children were awake early in anticipation of the next round of activities and for their breakfast. The boys and girls enjoyed numerous adrenaline pumping action packed activities including: a high rope course, kayaking and canoeing. Evening entertainment was a disco which was enjoyed by staff and children alike. It was a fantastic day in a beautiful setting.
The morning sun once again appeared on Sunday. Although it was a little bit cooler, the children layered up and showed great spirit, improved team skills and courage out on the activities.
After a scrumptious Sunday roast everyone headed back out for the next round of activities which included kayaking and canoeing. Battling the elements, the children – under the watchful eye and guidance of the instructors – soon showed some superb handling skills.
The other groups were successful on the low and high ropes, shelter building and the blind trail. Over the course of the day many children overcame a fear of heights, showed immense courage and gave their all. Teamwork was displayed and the children thoroughly enjoyed the day.
It really was a wonderful experience that they will remember for years to come.
