On Monday 31st March 2014 Year 4 went on a residential trip to Condover Hall for 2 nights. On route we stopped at Wroxeter, which was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain. We explored the remains of the Bath house as well as viewing a replica of a Roman town house. We even tried on some Roman clothes. After a picnic lunch we continued on our journey down Watling Street!

 

Trip to Condover HallAt 2pm we arrived at Condover Hall and had our first view of the impressive manor house as we drove up towards it.  Immediately, we explored the site with our friendly instructors! We were organised into three activity groups – Cunning Cobras, Golden Eagles and The Cool, Crazy Celts.

Before very long, we were at our first activity! Throughout the week, whilst enjoying the sunshine, we experienced climbing, abseiling, archery, fencing, multi-vines and body zorbing. Even though some of the activities seemed daunting, we were all willing to attempt them and overcome some of our fears!

During the evening we took part in a mini Olympics as well as a campfire where some of us displayed our talents. Each day we enjoyed sitting as a large group in the dining hall to enjoy the delicious, rather large portions of food. Nobody went hungry in these few days!

Trip to Condover HallAn excellent time was had by all and there have already been many comments of, “When can we go back?”

Skye, “Climbing the wall was my favourite activity! Watching the other children climb inspired me to have a go, even though I was scared!”

Joshua K, “Condover Hall is the best because there are lots of amazing activities. Although the multi-vines were extremely high, I still got to the end because everyone was cheering me on!”

Robbie, “Archery was my favourite activity because I hit the middle of the target! Although I didn’t abseil, I was proud of myself for climbing to the top of the tower and glancing over the edge!”
