Day Two

 

We had a brilliant first full day at Brecon in the glorious sunshine. The mountain walk group walked up Corn Du and took in the most spectacular views. Another group went canoeing, completing games and working fantastically as a team. The final group went down and explored the caves, completing lots of challenges and then experiencing waterfalls in the afternoon.

 

Tonight the children worked in their groups to complete team work games. They’re having a fantastic time and have settled down well for the night.

Another fantastic day today with the weather luckily clearing up.  One of the groups went canoeing on the canal and travelled about 4 miles down it.  They worked fantastically as a team and really supported each other to develop their skills.

Brecon 2018 Archive

Year 6 arrived safely at the Hampshire mountain centre in Brecon Beacons yesterday. After a tour of the building, the children went to their rooms to unpack and settle in before dinner.

The children were amazed by their view yesterday and in the evening took part of one of two activities. Half the children went on a local walk into the mountains where they learned more about the history of Brecon Beacons and experienced the mountains under the stars. The other group took part in photo orienteering around the building.

A stunning morning today! The sun is now shining as the children head off to their activities: caving, canoeing or mountain walking. After a good sleep, the children are  excited to get going! More pics soon!

Tuesday 

The children had a fantastic day on their activities! The canoeing group worked brilliantly as a team and took part in some games where luckily no one fell in (however quite a few people ended up in the reeds!)

Another two groups went off exploring the caves. They were kitted out in suits, helmets and head torches and the cavers were really excited to take part in lots of the challenges, particularly the toilet! They were absolutely fascinated with the caves and the formation of them.

The mountain walk was a brilliant experience for the children and they were amazed by the view at the top. They felt exceptionally proud of their achievement (although a bit tired after the steep climb!)
