19 children from year 5 and 6 went on a trip to Dol-Y- Moch from 1st February – 5th February. We really enjoyed learning about the environment in Wales and how to be independent. During our trip around Wales, we took part in activities such as: orienteering, castle exploring, canoeing, mountain biking and slate mine exploring (we had to climb the mountains to get there). Despite all the hard work we did, we got many treats – we went to the beach and had ice-cream from the best shop in Wales. We loved our trip and would like to say thank you to Mr Watson and Miss McElvenny for supporting us and also soaking us wet with the hose pipe (José). The three main rules we had to follow were respect, responsibility and resilience, which we all successfully achieved.

After a long coach ride in the heat the children have arrived safely at Dol-y-Moch and are excited to start their activities.
A group of 19 year 5 and 6 children completed an outdoor adventurous activities course this week. We had great fun learning new skills like bed-making and making sandwiches as well as taking part in more adventurous activities. We challenged ourselves with lots of outdoor activities such as canoeing, mountain walking and mine exploration as well as learning map skills and finding our way round a route in a forest. We also visited the beach and scrambled over the rocks. Everyone enjoyed an ice cream and the sun even made a brief appearance whilst we were on the beach. Well done to all the children. They were a credit to the school and learned a lot.
Pupils will be off to Plas Dol-y-Moch on Wednesday 22nd July. They are all busy packing and asking lots of questions. Remeber to check the equipment list provided by the school and have everything prepared well in advance.
Please aim to be at St. Elizabeth’s Primary School at 1.00pm, the coach leaves at 1:30pm.
It is about a 20 minute walk from John Gulson Primary to St. Elizabeth’s Primary so please leave in good time.
All the pupils are very excited and I am sure they will have a great time.
