On Friday the 12th October, 5J had their first class assembly all about their residential at Ingleborough hall where they did loads of outdoor activity like caving, gorge scrambling, tree climbing and lots of other exciting activities. As well as talking about the residential they went on, they shared their comparative reports on Idle and Clapham. One similarity was that they both have people who are famous for certain things that they did or invented. In the assembly, there were 4 people that read some of their work. They then showed us some country dancing videos before performing another dance that Miss Javed had taught them.
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.
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.
Last night, Year Four went to a meeting about the Ingleborough Hall residential trip with Mr Rhodes, Miss Lea and Mr Patterson. The meeting was all about the fun activities that we would be doing whilst were are there such as: tree climbing, caving, gorge scrambling, a village studio and a LONG walk. They told us all about where Ingleborough Hall is, what it is like to stay there and how much fun it is! The residential will take place in 1st few weeks of the Autumn term and all the parents and children there were very excited and can’t wait to go. There was just one last thing that Mr Rhodes said – we have to learn how to tie our shoe laces. If you want to find out anymore about this year’s Ingleborough Hall trip go onto our blog.
Today, with the help of Miss Lea 5L pulled off a fantastic assembly. The assembly was all about Ingleborough Hall and what work they did to prepare for their adventure and the work they did afterwards.
The assembly started off by talking about maps and what contour lines are. They then went on to tell us what they did the day they got there. They went to the famous Ingleborough Show Cave and they explained all about the myths behind the stones. They then told us that they went on many more activities like Gorge scrambling were they had to climb a dry river bed: also they climbed trees and went caving under ground where there were a series of challenges that were difficult in their own way.
They had a rhyme that was:
Lois was like Dr.Foster though she didn’t go to Gloucester but still went in a puddle right up to her middle and was nearly never seen again!
Year 5 had a fantastic time at Ingleborough Hall and loved putting together a fantastic assembly for us all to watch and enjoy!

Today Year 5 arrived at Ingleborough Hall and after getting their kits issued it was straight into action as we were off the the Ingleborough Show Cave. In the caves we learnt all about the rock formations. After a quick march back to Ingleborough Hall, we had a fire alarm test before it was time for tea. Once tea was finished the children had a chance to explore the grounds and play outside before campfire stories with Dominic. Check out the pictures below and leave us a comment.

It would be great for you to be present/involved with packing so they are aware of what you are taking.
