Trewern Day 4
Well it's so hard to believe that this wonderful adventure has just about come to an end. The children have continued to excel themselves - especially when you consider their level of exhaustion! Everybody has had an incredible trip and really work hard to try and achieve our goals of trying something new, developing a new level of independence and, of course, working together.
There are plenty of sad faces at the thought of leaving but I'm sure everyone is also looking forward to getting home!
Thank you for taking the time to read our blog and we will endeavour to add some more photos in the next week.
Trewern Day 3
The Godwin children have continued to excel themselves and there was certainly no sign of the classic 'Wednesday dip' today.
Group 1 ventured out onto the river Wye today to try their hand at canoeing - they proved to be very quick learners! The children were so strong that they were able to take their canoes down some small rapids and even had an opportunity to float down the rapids! Later in the day, the children spent some time in the indoor climbing centres. It certainly was amazing to watch these children conquer their fears and push themselves far beyond what they thought they were ever capable of.
Today was group 2's turn to explore Hay Bluff and learn all about the water cycle first hand. That was followed by a much closer look with some incredibly fun gorge walking - what an incredible experience. The children certainly had the time of their lives.
Group 3 had an action packed day which included learning how to BMX, trying their hand at some forest survival skills, excelling in archery and finally culminating in the always fun muddy puddle.
With only one day left, there is excitement at what tomorrow will bring but also sadness and disbelief that our trip has gone by so quickly; we certainly will all work hard to make the most of our remaining day however.
Trewern Day 2
What another incredible day here at Trewern. The weather has been absolutely beautiful and the only thing better has been the behaviour and effort of the children - a true credit to Godwin!
Groups 1 & 3 both ventured into the Brecon Beacons today and hiked through the forest. This culminated in an opportunity to visit Sgwd yr Eira - a fantastically beautiful waterfall deep in the heart of the mountain range. The waterfall provides a rare and unique opportunity to explore how these incredible wonders of nature are created, by giving us a chance to walk behind it and study it up close. The children of both groups excelled in this particular adventure and even managed to survive the 170 step climb back up!
Group 2 took part in a variety of different actives today including: BMXing; learning forest survival skills; trying their hand at archery; and experiencing Trewern's famous muddy puddle.
What an incredible day it was today for everyone and we are eagerly awaiting a variety of new experiences and challenges tomorrow.
Trewern Day 1
Today was our first full day in Trewern and it was fantastic! The children have fully embraced our goals and have been absolutely incredible!
Group one learned all about the water cycle by venturing up to the top of Hay Bluff to see the source of the Dullas brook. They also had an incredibly rare opportunity - not only did they get to meet, but also pet, some wild Welsh mountain ponies! Later in the day, they moved further down the brook and got themselves soaked - from head to toe - gorge walking.
Group two had an opportunity to walk through a beautiful forest, learning an awful lot along the way, culminating in a walk behind a waterfall.
Group three ventured out onto the Hay river and proved themselves very quick learners in the canoes. In the afternoon, they had the opportunity to show off their climbing prowess by conquering almost all of the different walls in the indoor climbing centre.
We are all very much looking forward to what adventures and challenges await us tomorrow.
