Y5/6 Snowdonia Residential 2016

Day 1: We've had a fantastic first day in North Wales. En route to Llandudno, we visited SeaQuarium and saw all kinds of ocean and freshwater sea life - including Seal feeding time! We went on the Conwy Castle, which brought much excitement of exploring, climbing towers and looking at the height and the views - but also thinking about life in the castle and how it would have been back in the 1400s. After a group of us ventured up Great Orme, this evening we've all been on the beach and had a fab time with all kinds of beach activities in the evening sunshine.

 
Day 2: We began with an incredible tour of Electric Mountain, seeing the workings of the Dinorwig Hydro-electric power plant deep inside 2km of mountain tunnels; some of us visited one of the oldest Welsh castles, Dolbadarn Castle built by Prince Llywelyn the Great. We then travelled up Snowdon, where we had fantastic views with clear sunny weather. After football and frisbee in the park and a trip along Llandudno pier, we went to the Ski Village for an action-packed evening of SnoTubes, tobogganing and golf.


Day 3: Starting off down the deep mine at Llechwedd, we learned about the history of Welsh slate mining, and had a go at some mining activities ourselves. We then ventured into the treetops for exhilarating rides and climbs across the high ropes. Our evening out at AstroBowl was a lot of fun - and Mr P scored two strikes in the last round to win overall with a score of 134 - Harry and Viktoriya came next with fab scores of 124 and 107!


Day 4: At TechniQuest Glyndwr in Wrexham, we were busy with all kinds of amazing hands-on science activities - gravity defying airflows, centrifugal forces, tricks of light and reflections, and a zinc-crystal glowing wall. We then had a Lego robots workshop, and built roaring lions! After more amazing science experiences, we spent the last of our pennies in the TechniQuest gift shop before heading back home - very tired but having had a great residential stay in North Wales.

Well done everyone for such a superb residential visit - we had so many comments from the places we visited about how well behaved and thoughtful our school children were - a real credit to the school.
