This is an exciting day out for everyone, full of discovery, at one of the many beautiful beaches in North Wales.
We use locations on Anglesey and at Penrhyn Bay, and once there teams get to investigate a fabulous rocky shore that is teeming with sea life.
It is a challenge for some young people to try to find the well-camouflaged beasties in the rock pools, for some the challenge is identifying them, while for others it is facing fears and phobias and building up courage to pick them up!
Follow a river from source to sea, walk around a mountain lake or wander down the Aber Valley and discover the impressive waterfall at the end. You may look at how water speed or river shape changes and even take some measurements. You can guarantee that the experience will lead to a greater understanding of the ways that water has helped to shape our landscapes.
North Wales is not just about climbing mountains or canoeing across lakes. There is a whole different country with its own customs, language and culture that is here to be explored.
You can visit the impressive Conwy Castle and walled town and learn about its medieval history; look at tourism in Betws Y Coed or LLandudno (listed as an alternative town study for KS2); or visit the railway station and learn how to pronounce the longest place name in the British Isles – Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch – (and one that your spell checker may struggle with!).
After a day out discovering the environments and culture of North Wales, you will gain an appreciation of how learning outside the classroom provides you with a vital educational tool for use throughout life.
