Our Walk up Pitch Hill
It’s been nice going up a hill. I didn’t fall in the mud so I didn’t bath like the others! Up the hill the sight was foggy but I thought it worth the time going up! It was fun going down and something epic happened – one of the girls saved me from bathing I held on to her while she had to hold on to the fence! I will remember her as the girl who saved a man from taking a bath 👍
Climbing in Sayers Croft
Today, we went climbing. We did a course where we had a harness that went around our legs. Some of the things were a skateboard, a climbing wall with foot holds and hand holds and a massive green net that we had to get through. After the net, at the end there was a zip-line, which was probably the most exciting bit, although all of it was fun.
After that, we did the gladiator challenge where we had to climb as high as we could, and I reached the top. We put on orange or blue helmets and that put us into two teams – the blue team and the orange team. The people who weren’t climbing pulled the rope for the climber, so we were in charge of the climber’s safety. The person at the end had to make sure that the rope did not go into the mud, and put it in a red tray. When the person wanted to go down, the person in charge would lower them down with a small black leaver, and we would have to feed the rope in.
As everyone had done both things by then, as we had split into two groups at the beginning, we were allowed to do bouldering across the building, and we were warned that there was an overhang on the inside. There was nothing to attach us to the wall so we stayed near the bottom of the line and went round twice, but then the time was up and we had a to go.
What a Team!
We played lots of challenges and games. It was fun but also hard!
This afternoon, we got to do the gladiator challenge. It was extremely tall and difficult . We all had a laugh when one of the teachers climbed the gladiator challenge. It was made out of wood, ropes and ladders.

The Third Day!
Today we are doing rock climbing and bouldering. It was really fun and we managed to climb the wall.
