Angle Bay had some amazing rock pools, we found: a shally, four different types of crab, some sea stars and winkles. We even escaped back to the bus before the rain came down!

 

In the afternoon we visited Pembroke Castle which is an impressive example of a Norman castle.   We learned about barbicans, murder holes, keeps, dungeons and oubliette! Beech class will happily share their knowledge with you when we return!

We enjoyed a relaxing evening, writing our diaries, playing games and chess in the common room and listening to a shared story before bed time. 

Day 1 at Stackpole!

Added on by Maple.

Arrived safe and sound at 1pm, in the driving wind and rain. Settled into our rooms then a lovely lunch! We then prepared ourselves in full rain gear for a walk to Broadhaven beach. We've seen a giant pike, a murmuration of rooks, founds a mermaids purse from a blonde ray, some jelly fish washed up on the shore. We climbed up through the dunes to see the view " wow it's awesome!" " amazing" " l want to bring my mum back here" These were just some of the responses from the kids. Sorry no photographic evidence as it was very wet when we set out but it soon cleared up. 

Down time before dinner!

Following dinner we started our John Muir Conservation Award diaries, there's been some great writing of today's activities.

Anti-Bullying Presentation with CLT

Added on by Chloe Turner.

During Snack and Story in Beech class this morning, three members of the CLT (Children's Leadership Team) gave a fantastic presentation on anti-bullying. The children talked about the work CLT have been doing to tackle bullying and discussed strategies to stop bullying with the children in Year 6. All children said this presentation was very well put together (they only had half a days notice!) and delivered, and how useful the information was.

Averages...

Added on by Chloe Turner.

This morning in Beech we worked in learning partners to find out different 'averages'. Children found out 'the average time children in Beech class spend on electronic devices/reading/playing outside/playing video games...'. Miss Turner was impressed by how well the children approached this activity, they worked well with their partners and as a whole class, showing great problem solving skills! Well done Year 6!
