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.
Today,was 4L’s class assembly about their trip to Nell Bank and about what they did whilst there . They had a Countryfile theme with presenters interviewing their minibeast and pond dipping experts. These experts told us what they had caught such as a dragon fly nymph and newt. They also told us about how they had built dens and gone on a long walk up to Ilkley Moor. They then started to sing a song that they learnt at Nell Bank by Jack and John who were their teachers. It sounds like they had a wonderful time and it was a very interesting assembly.
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!
