Willow Class, Year 3, thoroughly enjoyed an exciting and challenging day when a real-life mountaineer showed them the ropes. Not only did the children wear harness and helmet to ascent a mountain ladder; they abseiled down; supported each other to climb the “cliff face” and traversed a “ravine” on a tight rope (all within school).
The day involved studying rocks for science and fossils for history. Children learnt about being an archaeologist and a rock hunter. A day they will remember for a very long time we think!
