Thorley Hill day 4

Another jam packed day, as I write we have only just finished our evening activities!

Once again the children needed waking at 7:30, a sure sign that we wore them out yesterday!

Today we climbed Moel Famau, Welsh for Mother of the Hills. At the top there is a tower built in 1810 to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of King George III.

The climb was hard work but the weather held for us and the view from the top was amazing.

The children had to cook their own lunch, lighting the fires took longer than expected but everyone was fed before we left for orienteering.


The orienteering went very well, no children got lost and Team 2 were victorious with a time of 40 minutes.

After tea the children took part in another one of Mr Gordon's famous wide games. This one involved me having a water pistol, no one got wet...

Once again the children have been superb today, they are looking forward to the multi-activity day tomorrow.
