Shakespeare class were extremely excited this year to be able to go on the annual residential trip to the Conway center after a few years of cancelled trips. Our big question has been 'What makes someone brave?' so of course, the trip was full of challenges! The trip formed part of our 'Outdoors and Adventurous' curriculum.
 
Our first challenge was leaving our parents, making our own beds and getting acquainted with the Conway staff. Some of us managed to not get stuck in our duvet covers and advanced on to raft building. Our rafts were a great success and we raced to be the quickest team to collect hoops. Only one team managed to dunk their teacher in the cold water! Some of us even went for a voluntary swim in the Menai Strait afterwards!
 
On the first evening, we tested our trust and teamwork skills as we took part in Nightline, trusting a partner to guide us around an obstacle course whilst being blindfolded. We also enjoyed our very own class disco and film.
 
The next day bought a huge range of challenges, starting off with learning how to paddle a canoe. We visited a small cave before paddling down the Menai Strait in record time. We spend time encouraging each other to abseil and also undertook some geography fieldwork, considering how land use along the Menai strait has changed over time. After paddling back and some well-earnt dinner, we enjoyed campfire songs and smores around the fire. 
 
With a good night's sleep, we spent our last day exploring different low rope challenges. Lots of them required us to work together as a team and to overcome fears if we were less confident.
 
What a wonderful trip we all had! All of the staff were extremely proud of all the children and the different ways in which they showed bravery.
 
With thanks to the Manor House and Conway Centre staff.
