Ingleborough Hall – Tuesday

We got stuck into a full day of activities today. Group 1 and 2 were involved in the long walk across Crummackdale and Norber and then traveled through Austwick Village. We were exhausted after the 9.3 mile walk!
Group 3 experimented in Gorge Scrambling where they climbed up a dry gorge and made their way through small spaces in between the rocks. We trekked through Yordas cave and through streams of water.
Group 5 faced their fears by tree climbing and group 4 explored Clapham Village and learnt about the history of the Farrar family. Each group rotated their activities and had an eventful day.
In the evening the children enjoyed activities such as trusting their partners whilst taking part in the nightline activity and using bat detectors to search for bats in the night. Those children involved in the long walk had a night off in the  Ingleborough Hall cinema!

Here are some pictures of the activities we have been involved in today.

Ingleborough Hall – Monday

Today we set off the long anticipated residential to Ingleborough Hall. Upon arrival we took our luggage into the outdoor classroom and made our way to collect our walking boots from the cellar. We then ate our lunch as we couldn’t hold our hunger anymore!
We then set off on a mile walk to the Ingleborough Show Cave. In the cave we learnt about the rock formations, we saw the reflective city in the rain water and learnt about stalactite and stalagmite.
When we arrived back, we ate our tea which was jumbo fish fingers, pizza and chips followed by brownies and chocolate sauce.
We then had a fire alarm test and ended the day with stories with Sita by the campfire. Just before bed, Mr Rhodes read chapter 3 whilst we drank hot  chocolate.

Take at look at some of the photographs from yesterday.
