Wales Adventure – Update 1

Year 6 have begun their adventure into Wales today, ready for an action packed week! After a long but exciting minibus journey, children arrived in the rolling countryside of Wales, greeted as always with traditional Welsh weather too!

First stop was a visit to St Fagans Welsh heritage village. This was filled with historical buildings, which are remarkably relocated and restored on site. The children were given a demonstration from one man making leather clogs by hand (Β£80 for a bespoke pair) each of which takes 10 hrs to make! Mr Plow ordered some to teach PE in!! Another man in the mill gave a fantastic historical talk about Anglo-Saxons and the origins of the English language.

All children are now safely un-packed and devoured a hearty roast chicken dinner before heading outside again at 8.30pm! This was for the night hike! A walk of 4 miles in rain and puddles up to our middles to test the waterproofs and walking boots! We can confirm that the waterproofs are all now tested and that we are all a little soggy!!

All were asleep by 11pm, after PJs and hot chocolate to warm up! Keep an eye on the Blog for further updates in the coming days! As well as this, to check out what those that haven’t gone to Wales are upto, click here!
