Residential

In September 2016 some of our pupils went to Doly Moch in Wales. The children have had a great time exploring the slate mines and visiting a local beach. There was enough time to stop off for a quick game of crazy golf. 

The following day the children went on a train ride fed the ducks and then went to Criccieth beach. 

 

 

In June 2016 we went to Calvert Trust in Devon. We are had a great time! We have been doing so many new activities and learning new things. 

On Tuesday we did abseiling, zip wire and canoeing.

 

 

On Wednesday we did some horse riding then went for a lovely swim. In the evening Exmoor Zoo came to visit and we held different types of animals. 

On Thursday we had a great day. We did archery, played at the play area, went on a rope swing then had an ice cream at the beach. After a busy day we had a party to celebrate the end of our week away and Dontae's birthday. 

On Friday we travel home to see our families that we have missed and to catch up for a well earned rest.

Well done everyone!
