Marton go down the mines!

After breakfast we went to Llechwedd Slate Caverns. We went on 2 tours down the mine and learnt about how hard it was for the Welshmen who mined the slate. We could not believe how dark, cold and miserable the conditions were for children as young as 10.

When we reutrned to Plas Nantglyn it was time for some team building challenges. We worked in groups of 6 and received points for how well we completed the activities and our teamwork.

In the evening we had to have the campfire inside due to a deterioration in the weather - again! 

We have all had another brilliant day and are looking forward to the Sealife Centre and the Sun Centre in Rhyl tomorrow.  

'Oi, get down from there!!!'

2 trips underground and we have only lost half of them!!!

'Guess which pet your child will ask for next?'

Task 1 - Can I have mine well done please?

Task 2 - Old man Parker heard that more pork pies were available on the other side of the stream.

Task 3 - The first spillage was rather obvious!

Task 4 - Anyone for croquet?

Task 5 - Teamwork is the key to the Bottle Run.
