Today we went canoeing, so I got all of my equipment on. We went to the canoe store and wore a special vest called a bouyancy aid. Also we had to each hold a paddle.We went in the mini-bus.It took along time to get there but we arrived. We went in the canoe and went to go. It took a long time but we paddled and we stopped for hot chocolate. After hot chocolate we carried on and arrived. I was sweating to death!! I think Dol-y-Moch has changed my life.

Splish, Splash, Splosh!!!

Today was the muckiest day EVER! In the morning we went to a stupendous river called the Afon Dwyrdd. We had to paddle for 1 mile also we battled the wind because it was pushing us back! But then afterwards the wind and the tide was with us and it pushed in the right direction. (Here’s a tip: When you are canoeing in a river and the wind is with you, put your paddle up and let the wind do all the work).

Today was a brilliant day. We had to go underground and explore what the Victorians used to do in a mine when they looked for lead. It was fun because the water went over our knees and it was freezing COLD! After a while our instructor told us about a man called Mr.Jones who used to have a helpful dog and he worked in the mine. Basically what happened in the story is that Mr.Jones was blown up in a mishap and his dog went to look for his master. Legend says that Mr Jones dog is still alive and looking for his master so if you ever go underground in Bwlch y plwm be very very careful…

We were on the canoes today – we were having lots of fun. First we tried to get the boats over a gate. We had to lift it up high I enjoyed it then we went on the boats. I was in a group with Owais, Yahya, Blessing and Samaiyah – we were with Mr Shebl  – it was hard work but worth it. I liked it and I would give 9 /10

Canoeing and mines :D

On Monday 13th Feburary we went canoeing on a river. We were told to lift up the extremely heavy canoes.  When we were on the river we excitedly ran into the canoes. We then played a game – canoe ball. We all had fun!!!!! Later we went down a mine – the water was very cold and deep but it didn’t stop us going into the mine. It was really dark. We had some hot chocolate and explored further – it was very exciting in the mine.

Canoeing on the extremely freezing river.


Once we were in the river our feet were beginning to freeze however we had the courage to carry on. While we were on the river bank I felt tired and thirsty . It was really exciting travelling  on the river in a canoe. It was quite chilly and at the same time warm because we were using a lot of energy. Basically we had a great time!!!!
