Canoeing on Coniston

We had a lovely sunny day canoeing on Coniston Water. Dallam Outdoor took us out on the water. We paddled over to Wild Cat Island, of Swallows and Amazons fame, had our lunch and the paddled back. There was just time for a quick splash about in the very cold lake!

Quarry Visit

As part of this term’s Rocks project we had a visit to Back Lane Quarry near Carnforth. We saw the whole process, extracting the rock, crushing it and sorting it into different sizes. We saw the big machines and discussed what the different rock products were used for. The highlight of the trip was watching them blast a new face! Thanks to everyone at Aggregate Industries.
