Dol Y Moch
It was raining very heavily, when we arrived at Plas Dol-y-Moch. As soon as we arrived at the centre, we had fish and chips for tea and then collected our kit. Then the children spent time making their beds and getting settled into their dorms.
After such a long coach journey and busy evening, the children (and staff!) went to sleep very quickly. Although this is the first time away from home for many of our children, they have got used to their new surroundings very quickly.
After breakfast this morning, the children made their own sandwiches and met their instructors for their first activities. Groups A and B did kayaking and rock scrambling at the beach. The majority of the children, and even Mr Somal and Mr Davenport, plucked up the courage to do the ‘Dol y Moch dive’.
Luckily, we had a bit of unexpected sunshine this afternoon. All of the groups went to the beach to do either rock scrambling or explore rock pools. The children were also really excited to see jellyfish and crabs.
After pizza and chips for tea, the children worked together to escape the labyrinth, whilst others completed a night-line.
All of the instructors, and staff, have been very impressed by the way our children have shown a growth mindset. They have encouraged and supported each other brilliantly.
We are all eager to overcome more challenges tomorrow and build on what we have achieved today.
