English Urban Summer Camp: Day 5

Today has been all about the water. As the days get warmer we try to find new ways of keeping ourselves cool, and of course have fun at at the same time. So today after our breakfast we got ourselves ready for a water balloon fight and prepared our water guns. We also played hot potatoe, but this time we used a cup of water instead, when the music stops whoever has the cup has to throw the water over themselves. After such an eventful morning after our lunch we played some sport, Simon says, and our line game, practicing concepts such as in, out and on. Have a great weekend look forward to seeing you back on Monday.
