On Monday group 1 went to Hoy for three days. When we got there we went to the hostel and got showed around the building. Then we found out what groups were in. Then group A and B got ready for canoeing. Once we got ready for canoeing we went on the mini bus to go to the river. When we got there we learnt how to move forwards, backwards and how to turn as a group. After we got split into the teams for canoeing we went into the canoes and had a race. After the race we played a game called fruit salad. We had to remember our fruit and swap places with the other person who was that fruit. Then we did it whilst the canoe was still moving. Then we had another race we had some hot squash. Then we got to slide into the water by turning a canoe upside down.
Then the next day we did the Gorge walk and the bush craft. For the Gorge walk we had walk through a tunnel underneath the road. Then we walked a bit on the grass before we went into the water. When walking in the Gorge we had to be careful as some of the rocks were lose and it was easy to slip. There was some bits that were quite scary because we had to use a rope to get down the mini waterfall. We carried on a bit before we had to walk back up to the van. It seemed muck more easer going back up the Gorge than coming down. When we went back to the hostel we had some lunch then got ready for the bush craft. For the bush craft we made a fire and cooked marsh mallows on the fire they were yummy. We also made a big shelter as a group by using the big branches.
Then the next day we had to leave Hoy we all had a great time in Hoy but before we left we got to do one last activity. We did another walk there wasn’t enough time to do it all but we still had a great time.
