On Wednesday 9th May – Friday 11th May, our Year 5 children have recently enjoyed a two night, three day residential trip to Conwy. They took part in a YHA spy training camp. YHA School Trips have teamed up with Walker Books and author Anthony Horowitz to produce this thrilling Action Adventure package based on his spy thriller Storm Breaker. ‘Spy Academy’ involved taking part in a programme of activities designed to find the next super spy, Alex Rider. They completed code breaking activities, orienteering and team building games. The children had the chance to try their hand at archery, visit Conwy Castle and they also completed an arduous mountain hike!
Year 5 finished off this fantastic residential with a trip to Bounce Below, where the children, and leaders took part in their final mission.
We are glad to report we have many promising MI6 spies in the making at The Firs. We saw some wonderful initiative, resilience, problem solving and physical prowess over the three days!
