This months walking club was based around Beacon Fell.

As it was a very wet day, Mr Waywell decided to change the plan to walk up Pendle Hill and to visit Beacon Fell instead. Here he ensured everyone that they would be doing a short walk in the rain and that they could leave their lunches back on the bus…how wrong he was!

The walk was very muddy and within only  a few steps Nikita had fallen over!  As Mrs Whitehead led the way we:

  • Found an egg
  • Learned from Beth that you can tell if something is dead because it is heavier
  • Fell over
  • Walked through a very muddy track
  • Fell over some more
  • Jumped in puddles
  • Followed an instruction that said “Look for a tree near a bush” when we were in a field full of trees and bushes
  • Picked some daffodils
  •  Fell over even more
  • Jumped in puddles
  • Saw some cows
  • Scared some sheep
  • Talked to some lambs (who were saying “mummy”)
  • Fell down some muddy hills
  • Fell up some muddy hills

Finally we made our way back and had lunch in a nice warm us.  Then for some we ventured into the woods for a few games of man-hunt whilst for others they opted for the warm cafe and hot-chocolate!

This was indeed one of the wettest and muddiest so far…yet still lots of fun!

(The photos that are in order show a pretty impressive puddle jump!)

The spies made their own rockets using dissolving tablets or bicarb and vinegar.

Did yours work? Which worked the best?

Map-reading is an important skill for every spy!

Year 6 put their skills to the test with some orienteering.
