The rest of the week was full of a activities, a different one each day at a different venue across Manchester. It was all about team building and working together and Mr L threw himself into each activity. He was full of chatter each night when we collected him, telling us all about his day and how much he enjoyed spending time with his friends.
He loved the pond dipping, he was full of information about all the creatures he got out of the pond. He took part in canoeing, he's not a swimmer, so again I was unsure of how he would do on this day, but he loved it. He also did some raft building, which he loved. He loves anything with his hands and got stuck right in with the group. School have been great with him and pre arragend that he was a in a group with his most close friends. He was most looking forward to archery on the 3rd day, and he tells me he was really good at it! Conversations can be very few and far between with Mr L, so it has been lovely to hear him talk so animatedly about all the things he had been doing with his friends.
This is the first year that school have done anything like this for the year 6 children, and I think its a wonderful idea. Mr L now has lots of special memories with all his primary school friends, and it gave us the chance to see him do things he wouldn't normally do.
