What a day!
After a delicious breakfast we swiftly marched to York Minster where we learnt all about the history of this beautiful building. We saw an interesting exhibition showing how underneath the Minster are lots of Roman remains and we learnt how the building has evolved throughout the centuries.
Next, we set off to York Castle Museum. There was a fantastic Victorian street, it was like stepping back in time. We experienced what it would be like to go to school in Victorian times. We also explored the old dungeons and saw what horrible conditions the prisoners survived in.
Straight after this, we went on a York river cruise. A local expert pointed out interesting sights along the Riiver. We were able to see how people protect themselves against the floods.
As a treat we enjoyed some delicious homemade ice-cream in the park.
After quickly catching our breath, we were off again! Next we went for a brisk walk along the old Roman wall.
We finished the day with a scary ghost walk through the City. Let’s hope we all sleep well tonight.
We are looking forward to Flamingo Land tomorrow!
After a short coach journey, Year 5 arrived in Todmorden car park ready to go. We followed the canal, crossed over the train track and climbed a hill (or maybe a mountain), before arriving at Dobroyd Castle. We found our rooms, had a quick lunch and set off for our first activities…
Mr Trier’s group:
We completed the nightline (a blindfolded obstacle course), learned to kayak on a lake, built and tested rafts, and even went caving! We had a fantastic time and can’t wait for tomorrow!
Mrs Schofield’s and Mr Donaghy’s groups.
First, we encountered the giant swing and had lots of fun watching each other’s faces as we flew through the air. Next, we entered the piranha pool where we had to navigate our way across dangerous waters – team skills were needed as we all completed the challenge. Our third activity was the knights quest which was full of problems and puzzles. To finish our activities we became Robin Hood or Maid Marion, testing our skills as archers.
