12 May 2022
On Wednesday of last week, a very excited Year 3 set off by coach for the beautiful Brecon Beacons where they were going to be staying for their first-ever residential trip. This was held in the lakeside setting of Acorn Adventure, in the village of Llangorse. As the coach entered the region, children could be overheard exclaiming, ‘Look at the mountains!’. It was already clear they were going to get a lot from their time away!
Throughout their time, the children followed a rotation of exciting activities in their different groups. There was canoeing and kayaking in the shallows of the lake, climbing on an on-site artificial climbing wall, a mini introduction to ‘caving’ through some man-made overground tunnels, a ‘night line’ exercise in blind-folded teamwork, a tug-of-war and even some ‘axe throwing’!
The children were fantastic in their participation: fears were overcome, as was some occasional homesickness; perseverance and enjoyment shone through by the bucket load.
Even during the transport problems that arose on the final day, the Year 3s never grumbled and simply got on with their extra activities and, finally, the journey home. Hearing the buzz and stories as they were reunited with their parents was just one indication of how worthwhile and enriching the whole trip had been.
Well done, Year 3!
