Lledr Hall 2019
Thursday 4th April
Perhaps the coldest Lledr ever!
Several children in Group 2 and 3 were nearly blown over to Dublin from the beach...but we had so much fun! Lots of fears were overcome whilst scrambling over cliffs and rocks, squeezing through holes and escaping from sinking sand. But the biggest challenge of all was the 'Fisherman's Walk'. We were initially scared as we looked down into the gorge, but quickly overcame our fears and at the end called out, "Can we do it again?"
Meanwhile over in the mine, Group 1 hiked our way through the forest to the slate mine, on the way learning how to wee in the great outdoors! After rapping our way through the tunnels, we had a romantic lunch in the soft candlelight! Heading up out the mine, it was almost like gorge walking but in the dark.
Thankfully all the energy we used up was replaced with a scrumptious tea of pasta and meatballs, followed by the biggest profiteroles we have EVER seen!
Now we are looking forward to a disco and film night and we can't wait to see you tomorrow to tell you all about our adventures. See you soon!
Wednesday 3rd April
We had a first today at Lledr - snow! But we all wrapped up warm and it didn't stop us from having fun.
Groups 2 and 3 went out for the day on an adventure down the mine. After a (chilly!) hike up the mountain, we explored an old Victorian slate mine, hopped on a boat and paddled across an underground lake and even had the chance to see what it was like in pitch darkness! On our way back down the mountain we enjoyed some beautiful snowy scenery.
Meanwhile, Group 1 spent the morning at the beach - yes that's right, THE BEACH! We got to practise our rock climbing skills as we scrambled along the coastline and we saw some jellyfish and crabs washed up on the shore. While we ate our lunch, we sat on top of a rock overlooking the estuary and admired the view. After lunch, we returned to Lledr Hall to try our balancing skills on the 'Fisherman's Walk' as we climbed along ledges by the side of the River Lledr.
We had a three course meal tonight of tomato soup, toad-in-the-hole and trifle for dessert - deeeelicious!
We spent this evening playing a selection of games and taking part in the Year 6's quiz. After supper, it is fair to say we are ready for a well-deserved sleep. Although we're tired from a busy day, we're excited for tomorrow's adventures!
Have a look at what we got up to today...
Tuesday 2nd April
What a great start to the week we've had!
We had a smooth coach ride to Lledr Hall this morning, where we enjoyed looking at the beautiful Welsh scenery and spotting local wildlife (including a Welsh dragon!) As soon as we arrived at Lledr Hall we got straight into an information-finding activity before stopping for a spot of lunch.
After we had our dinner, we were given our kit and then headed out on to the Jungle Gym. We had great fun climbing on ropes, crawling through tunnels and riding down the 'death slide'! Bradley 'The Brains' Moran made a superb team leader in the problem-solving challenges while Caitlin showed off her balancing skills on the ropes.
We were treated to a delicious roast chicken tea, followed by sticky toffee pudding for dessert - YUM!
This evening we got to know our way around the grounds by doing an orienteering activity. Miss said we were the quickest group she's ever seen! Then we had a quick supper before getting into our pyjamas and heading for our dormitories.
What a fantastic first day!
