Year 6 students recently visited Derwent Hill in the Lake District. They had an amazing time pushing themselves to achieve things they didn’t know they were capable of. Each child had their own biggest achievement of the week, including riding the death swing, climbing a mountain, jumping into waterfalls, sliding down gorges and finding out about rare animals at the farm.

Working as a group they managed to complete the John Muir award. This is given to children that have demonstrated they explored new places, discovered things they never knew before, conserved the countryside for others to enjoy it, and finally sharing their experiences with others in the hope that they would discover the Lake District National Park.
