East Barnby residential 2013

Day 1:
We have had a great time constructing shelters in the forest. This was a brilliant task, with much teamwork, planning and effort needed. Warm sunny weather made the task that bit easier, and the resulting shelters were all super - and very individual in their designs.
Day 2: 
It's been all 'hands on deck' for canoeing to Whitby. The need for teamwork took on new heights today, as we worked against strong winds and tidal flows to navigate all the way to Whitby by boat. We enjoyed pirate games and an island lunch before trudging through the mud at Whitby harbour to reload the boat trailers. Much experienced and much learned about rivers, the sea, different environments and the forces of nature! 
Day 3:
Our outdoor climbing (fully roped, and known as "trad climbing") was in a sheltered disused quarry in Ravenswick. The climbing was an exhilarating and rewarding pursuit, and due to listening, cooperation, teamwork and knotting skills being outstanding today, the children were able to beylay each other. This meant everyone was able to do bouldering, followed by three rockface challenges. Everybody showed amazing confidence and excellent climbing ability. Well done everyone!
Evening sledging:
The dry ski slope was a very popular evening activity, and the slope's water sprays coupled with the howling wind really made for a 'winter sport' experience!
Day 4:
Beck scrambling included scrambling through cracks and crevices between rocks, both wet and dry, and crossing the beck. Now we know the importance of waterproofs!
In the afternoon at Runswick Bay, we were hunting for creatures, living and fossilised. As the tide was fully out, there were plenty of fossil finds. Bags coming home will likely be much heavier than the bags that came with us!
Day 5:
Orienteering was a good energetic finish to the week's adventure activities. Map reading really improved through the morning, as the challenge was to achieve the best time. Our study of Whitby finished the visit.
