Thank you Mrs Cousins for the chocolate treats
After fun on the beach, we headed over to the Barmouth slab to scramble up the rocks. Team Ben were demons at rock scrambling reaching 500 metres above sea level. Along the way, we ate yellow gorse flowers for extra energy.
Can you guess the word?
On a cold, crisp morning, Mrs North’s group started the day with a walk to Barmouth to complete the town study. We found out that Barmouth grew to become an undistinguished but busy trading port, shipping out herrings in the 16th century. From the late 18th century Barmouth became a favourite stop for the travelling well-to-do. Charles Darwin being one of them.
These two big kids are having a whale of a time. Soaked to the core post canoeing after jumping in the lake. Cold, guys?
As the sun was tearing through the clouds, Mr Gerrie’s group headed off this morning to complete the challenge-inducing Trail Quest. Would the group be able to work together and complete the activities? Following nothing more than a map (with no adult guidance), the group had to locate many different challenges, work out what needed to be done and then decide on the best possible decision to overcome that particular task. Each time they successfully completed a challenge, they were given a new item to collect and take with them. At the end of the quest, they found they had an array of different things: chocolate powder, small chunks of wood, plastic cups, kindling .. but, what could they be for? Suddenly, it dawned upon them: hot chocolate! What more would you want on a cold winter’s day?! Success! Time for lunch, and then a spot of gorge walking!
