Thorley Hill day 3

Today we went up a mountain called Mother of the hills or Moel Famau (Welsh)
There were loads of breath-taking views, and loads of steep hills but we managed.
When we arrived at the top we saw the jubilee tower it was built in 1810.

At the top of Moel Famau


Then we went swimming at Eirias Park it was so fun! The best bit was splashing Mr Webb and going down the slide with him!!!

Feeding time!

Clean plates (and salad bowl). Well done boys!
Diary writing.
We played a game called wide game with Mr G, there were different colours of discs that represented different amounts of points! It was really FUN!!!

I LOVE WALES!!!!! By Ellie Elle and Elizabeth
Ready for Mr G's award winning wide game.

I've got one!
Thanks for all of the comments, keep them coming, the children are enjoying hearing them. I hope my class are behaving themselves Mrs Hughes!

Mr Webb

  13. Hello Year 6, it looks like you are having a fabulous time. I bet you are all tired by the evening - hopefully you are getting lots of sleep as well and not chatting too much! I have spoken to Mr Webb every day and I am really proud of how well-behaved you are all being - keep flying the flag for Thorley Hill! It is very strange here without you. Every morning I keep forgetting to ring the bell in the hall before I ring it on the playground, so all of the children are waiting for ages for the Teaching Assistants to come out. I will be very glad when my monitors for that job return -I guess the children, parents and carers on the playground will as well! I am looking forward to seeing all of you on Friday afternoon. Enjoy the rest of your adventure. Love Mrs Perez

  14. Love your comment, I LOVE Wales, so glad you are loving Mr G's games, I know you were looking forward to them Elle. Be gentle with Mr Webb, it sounds like he was a very good sport in the swimming pool. Very proud of you all. Can't wait to hear today's adventures. Last full day tomorrow, make the most of it guys. The house is quiet without you Elle, missing the dance runs, hugs and a trillion kisses. The nashes x
