Sealyham 2019: Day 2

Our eager pupils were up bright and early ready for the first of many hearty Sealyham breakfasts. Fuelled for the day ahead, the thrill-seeking children set off for their activities:

Group 1 had an energetic start to the day with a trip to the beach for surfing. Luckily, the warm winds provided great conditions and everyone thoroughly enjoyed riding the waves. After a few tumbles into the sea, most of the group were able to stand up on their surfboards; not an easy thing to do. The afternoon ended on a high as the children tackled the high ropes through the trees, crossing the wobbly bridge, balancing on the ropes and confronting fears.

Groups 3 and 4 had their fair share of challenges: they braved the Pembrokeshire coastline as they jumped, climbed and swam against the open waves (coasteering is not for the faint-hearted!); they took to the range to test their archery skills; they worked hard on the low ropes, using clear instructions, spotting each other and working as a team to get everyone from start to end without touching the floor. In the evening, groups 3 and 4 displayed their expertise... at throwing wellies!
