PGL - February 2017


Everyone had a fantastic time at PGL Caythorpe. They worked really well together as a team, overcoming nerves and tackling each of the challenges, including the cold weather and the snow! Take a look at the photos and see who you can spot.

Group 3 - raft building, zip wire, aeroball, archery, challenge course and giant swing. There was excellent team work during the raft building task and we all enjoyed watching each person zoom past on the zip wire. During challenge course, the group became spies in order to complete their mission.

Did the rafts float?

Workshop with Gareth Baker.

Gareth Baker worked with us, to improve our story telling. We worked in small groups and created our own 'tall stories', inspired by Gareth's fishing adventure. It all began with 'You will never guess what happened to me at the weekend.' We included actions, to help our audience.
