The Children Visit Derwent Hill 2022 | June 15, 2022

A group of 35 year 5 and 6 children have just returned from a fantastic week at Derwent Hill in the beautiful English Lake District

The children had an action packed week with some great outdoor activities including: canoeing, mountain walking, gorge walking and of course the infamous “big swing.” Because the children were completing their John Muir award, they also had the opportunity to visit Blackwood Farm and meet the award-winning farmer, Paul Barnes . This session allowed the children to see what Paul is doing to improve biodiversity and they got involved in a number of conservation tasks to learn about the importance of respecting the natural environment.

It was great to see how our children have pushed themselves to achieve some great things during their visit and have made memories that will stay with them for a long time to come. All children have returned with a new set of skills in confidence, teamwork, communication and a healthy respect for their wider environment.

You can view our Google Photos Album to see loads of photos and videos taken from the week.

Derwent Hill is open to children in year 6 each year and letters will be going out for our June 2023 visit in early September. Any remaining places will then be open to year 5 children.
