We have already had such a wonderful time! To get to grips with the Lledr Hall grounds, we split into teams and played Crack the Code, racing around Lledr to find hidden codes for us to decipher. After a substantial dinner of spaghetti and meatballs followed by sticky toffee pudding, we headed out again, this time to go on a night walk. When we finally made it back to the hall, we had just enough energy to sing Happy Birthday to our Birthday girl before heading to bed. Our next big adventure...falling to sleep!
Today was a full day of mountain adventures - we've never walked so far! Mr Edlington and Mrs Butler took us off the usual route to dip our toes in a refreshing pool. It took heaps of effort to get to the top but the view made it all worthwhile. We will sleep tonight...
We have had an a-ma-z-i-n-g day! Not wanting to start off gently, we jumped straight into the high ropes, climbing and clambering high above the ground. Afterwards we went to walk along what is called The Fisherman's Walk, where we were secured to the side of a rock-face as we made our way along a gorge. The heights put some of us out of our comfort zone so it was a huge success when everyone said that they would definitely do it again. The best part of the day was when our group grew by another member!
Our incredible first morning started with joking around on the jungle gym - it was brilliant! After swinging and sliding through the morning, we spent our afternoon in the gorge. Some of us overcame our fear of the water and have a lot to be proud of. We loved getting into the water on such a beautiful day and can't wait to find out what's next.
Today's epic quest had us set off to the summit of a mountain. We worked so well as a group to support each other and raise one another's spirits as we trekked to the top. The sights were spectacular and we made friends with quite a few sheep. Lots of human friendships were forged too, and we all feel that we've really accomplished a great feat!
We had a fantastic morning in the gorge here at Lledr Hall. It was a tricky challenge making our way up the steep rocks and not to forget the biggest challenge of putting on our wet boots!! We loved jumping in and sliding down! Then in the afternoon we conquered the Jungle Gym, working together to get the bucket of water all the way around, even across the swing too!
For many of us, the trek up Moel Dyrnogedd was the longest walk we have ever been on. The word of the day was: perseverance, and lucky for us we have buckets of it. We persevered on the way up, persevered on the way down, and persevered when our route was blocked for twenty minutes by cows. The weather was beautiful and the views were spectacular. We can't wait for tomorrow's activities!
Quite a few of us conquered our fears today, first on the High Ropes this morning, where we crosses the High Bridge and climbed up to the top of a very tall tree and completed the Bell Challenge. Then, from another great height, we worked as a team during the Fisherman's Walk. It was very high and scary at points, but we all made it to the end and felt terrific!
We started off our morning in the Jungle Gym, trying our best to stay up high and keep our feet off the floor - tricky when you're walking across a rope or wobbly bridge! After this we had time to work in pairs and do some orienteering before our lunch. This afternoon we were so glad to get into the cool water and explore the gorge. Working together, we made our way through strong currents and across slippy stones, we really loved floating in the water!
The high ropes were our first challenge of the day! Some of the ropes and bridges were shockingly high up - we needed nerves of steal to step out onto the Indiana Jones bridge. By the afternoon, we were well trained at crossing over high places, which was perfect for getting along the Fisherman's Walk. Some of us were still a little nervy with heights but you can see from the pictures that we all got stuck in and earned our dinner.
Our word for today was: communication. We really did need some work on this one at first. Lots of new activities have been added to the Jungle Gym that needed us to plan ahead and pass information between one another. It took a while for us to get the hang of it but in the end we did ourselves proud with how supportive we were towards each other. In the afternoon, we jumped into the gorge and had a brilliant time jumping off rocks and sliding into the water. What a blast!
It was our turn today to go on the longest walk of our lives: Mount Moeldyrnogedd! The sights were spectacular, our determination was second to none, and the weather was on our side! Our favourite part was stopping at our hidden gem, a stunning river with many waterfalls. We paddled and played, we didn't want to leave! Together, we conquered the six mile walk and helped each other to keep spirits high. What a wonderful last day!
Another day of challenges and in particular, conquering great heights! In the morning we went to the famous Fisherman's Walk and worked as an unbelievable team to all get across together, getting much more adventurous along the way! Then in the afternoon we went on the High Ropes course, perfected our balancing and lots of us tried some even higher challenges! We ended our final day with the Jungle Gym slide, filling every second of Lledr with fun!
We still can't believe that Lledr Hall opened up just in time for us to go. It has been an amazing week: we've taken on great adventures, persevered through tricky challenges, and been absolute superstars. Today, we're heading home so here are some extra photographs (and selfies) from what we've been getting up to in the evenings.
