Report by Maisie
First, on our action-filled day, we participated in raft races. The first round was won by Burton and the second round was won by our opponents. The rafts were ready made by the friendly instructors who gave us a push at the start – they were made from 4 plastic barrels, rope and wood.
Next, we had to put on a wetsuit on for Kayak training. There were three Kayaks, Tamsin shared with Samson, Harry shared with Connor and I shared with Matilda. It was splashing fun and my favourite activity of the day.
After that we had netball. To start it all off we played tag, it was lots of fun. I managed to tag lots of the other team. We split into two teams, in the end it was 3-1 to them.
Next, we played football penalties and most of us scored! We then had a match and we beat them 3-1, it was tough but we worked really hard as a team.
Penultimately, we played cricket. We started by throwing and catching. Then we played a game of rounder, everyone had a go at fielding and bowling, I hit the ball on the first try.
After lunch was the final race, we came 4th, 1st and 4th. We got changed and then it was reward time.
WELL DONE BURTON
