Mercury Class had our first Reading Cafe yesterday. We read a book by Lauren Child called “I want a pet”. The children made animals they would like to have as a pet. There were some interesting creatures!
On Friday 30th June we held our annual whole school Race for Life event starting with a Zumba warm up. It was a huge success with lots of parents and family members also taking part. We have already raised lots of money for Cancer Research and the sponsorships continue to come in. Will we reach our £1500 target? Thank you to everyone who supported our Race for Life event.
On Thursday, it was time to visit Eyam Museum to learn about the plague. We had lunch in the village then took a stroll to the cemetery to look for victims from many years ago!
Then our final task was at Dark Peak to complete our soil testing, to compare to White Peak & Briston, before returning to the hostel for some well-deserved free time!
Wednesday was set to be a tough one after Triathlon Tuesday, but everyone was keen and ready for the day. We set off for Castleton to carry out our Traffic Survey. Once completed, we grabbed lunch and set off for Mam Tor. With the incredible heat, it was a tough climb but we persevered and all made it up in good spirits. Once we reached the summit, we posed for a pic then started our descent towards Blue John Cavern – a much-needed cool down underground! Then it was home for food and lots of sleep!
Triathlon Tuesday went down without a hitch. The weather was warm and breezy which meant that the return journey on the bikes was a little harder to manage but everyone did fantastic! We then explored White Peak and carried out soil tests to be able to compare them to those in Briston. After heading back to the hostel for dinner, we had a fab swim at Matlock. A great day was had by all!
