The end of a great week for Y6 at Buckden!

How quickly the week goes! Trip 2 came up on Wednesday and have enjoyed two fantastic days in mainly dry weather. A few highlights from the children are below.

Harry recalls his walk in the glorious sunshine on the first afternoon. “I had a great time and will never forget how Josh J walked all 4 miles in his jumper and full waterproofs whilst everyone else was in shorts!”

Summer remembers a ‘near-death experience’ on the ghyll scramble. “Tayla was convinced we were going to die! We didn’t.”

“The cave was sooooooooooo cold!” said Lydia. “I’m pretty certain Harry lost a couple of fingers from frostbite.”

“Mr Pickering seemed to get rather worried in the cave,” recalls Tilly. “I think he thought he had lost Matthew because Matthew (who was leading us out) kept ignoring him when he was checking we were all ok! Or maybe I was just confused because it was so dark…?”

Maisie also wanted to contribute to this blog but she couldn’t because she was too traumatised after Lydia rolled down the hill and nearly flattened her.

Well done everyone – thanks to a great week from all the staff.
