Day 1 - Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds

Well, after a slightly delayed start to the journey, we eventually got on our way!  It was an uneventful journey to the Royal Armouries, and after a well needed lunch break we split into two groups to enjoy the museum.

This evening, after a lovely meal of lasagne and chips (followed by lemon tart) we all enjoyed a stroll on the beach.  The pebbles provided the entertainment, with some children building towers and others holding their own version of a 'shot put' contest.  There were quite a few soggy feet by the time we left!  This group of boys were particularly proud of their creation, which was undoubtedly the largest on the beach.

Day 2 - The Great Orme Copper Mine

Today we made our way to the top of The Great Orme.  We were first in the queue for the tram ride up, and enjoyed wonderful views of LLandudno on the way up.  At the top, the children enjoyed a talk by the ranger, which included learning about the native fauna and flora and hunting for fossils.  

In the afternoon, we visited the Bronze Age Copper Mine.  A number of children found themselves facing personal fears, but all made it through the mine unscathed.  They they were then encouraged to burn off any remaining energy in the play park.
