Thorley Hill day 4

Today we went to Conway Castle we had a guide called Morgan she showed us around the castle, it was amazing. We saw loads, the king’s room, the prison tower, the great hall, even the stables (but there were no horses of course).

Neil (one of our guides) introducing himself

Neil explaining defences to the children.
Orienteering this was quite a hard activity we got lost only once (wow) everyone else got lost too! (hahaha) But although we got lost we still came 1st (we are group 4).


We're lost!

Still lost......
We all went on the swing it was fantastic !!!!!!
