Plas Dol Y Moch

Standard

A couple of weeks ago, 30 children from year 6 were lucky enough to visit Plas Dol Y Moch – which is located in Snowdonia, Wales. The rainy weather did not manage to dampen our fun as we took part in some very exciting activities. We went kayaking, mountain climbing, rock scrambling, rock pooling, orienteering and even had an ice cream by the beach! Miss Hernon, Mr Pahal, Mrs Nijjar and Mr Stevenson were all very impressed by the way everybody showed responsibility, resilience and respect. Here are some photos we took from the trip.

Plas Dol-y-Moch

Good luck to all our Year 6 children who have travelled to Plas Dol-y-Moch this weekend.

The 5-day residential trip is a great opportunity for children to learn and develop independent skills through participation of lots of different outdoor activities.

Ms Hernon, Mr Stevenson, Mr Pahal and Mrs Nijjar will be keeping us updated as and when they get signal (it’s very limited in the Welsh countryside). Please remember, no news is good news!

Stepping back in time

Standard

Can you imagine being told that you must move to the countryside because the country is at war? In 1939, thousands of children were evacuated from busy cities like: London, Manchester and Birmingham. Children were sent away to small towns and villages to live with host families and the only way they could communicate with their family was the postal service! When was the last time you wrote a letter?

In today’s lesson, children stepped back in time and into the shoes of those evacuees in the Second World War. We wrote postcards to our families to inform them how we were settling into our new, countryside home.
