The Brecon Beacons

Posted in Adventure, Forest School, Geography, Kindness, mental health

We had a brilliant time on our residential to The Brecon Beacons in Wales.

We had a very smooth journey and stopped off at Bristol.

 

When we arrived we popped our things into our tents and then got on with our first activity, which was climbing.  We enjoyed challenging ourselves on the different courses and encouraging each other.

 

We settled into our tents, had dinner and then enjoyed the evening activity of robot wars.  To earn points to build our robots we took part in some fun team games first!

On day two we had a go at katakanuing!

We walked back to the main site, got changed, had some lunch and then had fun working together on night line and mission impossible!

After dinner our challenge was a creative, alphabetical scavenger hunt!

We slept very well on the second night and on Wednesday morning we enjoyed archery and catapults!

 

After lunch we went on a short walk but it was so hot that we decided to come back to the camp and have a water fight instead!

In the evening we toasted marshmallows on the campfire and sung some strange campfire songs!

We were having so much fun making memories that our last day had come: high ropes, bushcraft and then in the evening, generation game fun!

 

For bushcraft we made shelters and lit fires.

It was time for our final evening activity, the generation game!

Finally it was time to go home. What a brilliant, action-packed week we had!
