An exciting time was had by Y6 on their residential this year as they took up the challenges of coasteering, surfing, sea kayaking and the Anglesey weather! Toasting marshmallows on the beach (in the rain at one point) and building sandcastles (as the tide came in) all added to the sense of adventure.
