Canoeing on Coniston
Every other year year we take the tinny ones from Langdale school over to Coniston Water and paddle out to Peal Island, the famous Wild Cat Island that stared in Swallows and Amazons.
I picked the team up from the school and we headed over in the Real Adventure minibus with the canoes on the trailer behind.
Its impressive how a team of eleven 5, 6 & 7 year olds can all get together and carry a canoe to the lake!
We rafted the canoes, split into 2 teams and quested to the island for a spot of lunch and a few games then back to our ships for the journey home packed full of fun including Excalibur and brain freeze.
