On Tuesday the children had their Survival Day. They had a fantastic and exciting day despite the very cold temperatures! In the morning, they completed team building activities, collected equipment to survive and then built shelters. In the afternoon, they got to have a go at lighting and building a fire. After this, they cooked marshmallows and dough on the fire. The leaders of our day were incredibly impressed by the attitude and behaviour of the children – well done everyone.
