Class 3 have just returned from an AMAZING day at YMCA – what a way to begin our half term. There were many notable personal triumphs today with children showing resilience, huge courage and a willingness to try something new. Their support for each other was also very strong so that everyone had a day filled with good memories.
With the weather on our side, we enjoyed a giant obstacle course which ended in a very muddy boggy area which we had to literally walk the planks over. We learned to fire arrows with a bow – not something that is easy by any means. We also sailed out into the middle of Windermere in one large boat, working together to propel it along, singing at the tops of our voices and playing all sorts of fun games. The instructors Amber and Andrew were wonderful and they really enjoyed their day with such keen, eager and polite pupils who were a credit to Levens School! A big thank you to all who helped us raise the funds for these special YMCA days through our marathon challenge last year – this was a very worthwhile and wonderful experience.
