Annual Year 5 Ironbridge residential hailed a success

Preparatory School pupils travelled to the heart of Shropshire for their annual residential trip.

The Year 5 Rydal Penrhos group visited Wilderhope Manor and Ironbridge over a two-day period, and managed to take part in numerous activities during their stay.

Their first port of call was the Museum of the Gorge, where pupils learnt about the history of the area and the important part it played in the industrial revolution.

They then travelled the short distance to Jackfield tile museum where they had a tour of the museum, in addition to taking part in a workshop where they had the opportunity to create their own encaustic tile.

Following this, the pupils visited the Ironbridge itself where they had the opportunity to sketch the bridge and learn a little more about its history and construction.

The following day the group visited Enginuity, an interactive design and technology centre where they toured around the exhibits and participated in a workshop.

Blists Hill Victorian Town was the final venue, and pupils got a first-hand look at what an education was like during the era.

There was plenty of fun to be had during the residential, which saw them visit a mini fun fair and a dry ski slope to further enhance friendships and experiences during another worthwhile initiative put on by Rydal Penrhos’ exceptional staff team.
