A great day for clock work sports.
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!
At the end of last half term, Years 4 and 5 took part in ‘Soul Space.’ This involves transforming a space into a calm and peaceful environment filled with fabrics, lighting and cushions along with different interactive activities and zones.
Throughout the session the Soul Space offers pupils the chance to access aspects of Christian prayer in an experimental way that a classroom couldn’t provide and encourages them to think and reflect on their own lives and wider world issues.
Parents were invited to come and take a look at the activities. There was lots of positive feedback!
On Monday 22nd May children from Years 3 and 4 were entered into a Mini Tennis event held at Easton Tennis Centre. They were first coached in how to play the game and were then split into 3 teams. Our A-team reached the final and came third overall. Thank you to Mrs Hill for supporting us on the trip.
