Scafell’s day of walking and sailing


Well done everyone; you braved a wet, blustery and cold day to make the most of this wonderful second opportunity to develop our sailing skills.  The day started early with lots to do before we could get on the water.  First, we needed to be kitted out in wetsuits, water shoes and splash tops. Then, we learnt how to rig our boats: with the added addition of a boom at the base of the sail this week.  After lots of instruction about how to manoeuvre on the water, off we went.  It really isn’t easy; so lots of determination, teamwork and resilience was required from everyone.

After a great session on the lake, we headed up through the woods and fields to Orrest Head for our late picnic lunch.  Our day ended with a well-deserved ice cream to celebrate a memorable day.


UN World Environment Day 2019

Every year the 5th June is marked as the United Nations World Environment Day. This is a day to question what contribution you are making to reduce the catastrophic footprint humans make on our very precious planet; before it’s too late.

The theme for this year is air pollution.  Did you know that 90% of people around the globe are breathing polluted air each day and many children die each year because of air pollution.

Following a whole school assembly on Tuesday morning, each class has been exploring climate issues.    Look out for more posts soon to see what we’ve been up to.
