Mine Walking

We were walking in a mine today and the most important thing I found out was that the people who help other people are the most useful team members. I had a great day. Aribah.

Mine Time

We spent most of the day in a slate mine. The mine had 5 levels. I saw lots of big pieces of slate and Connor, our instructor, told us a story about the miners. On the third level we climbed up a super steep piece of slate with a strong rope. When you looked at it from a distance it seemed so hard but when you were walking sideways on the slate it was surprisingly fun. The key to success was teamwork and we had a great day. Hamza S

My Little Pony

I walked up a gorge today. There was lots of fast flowing water as we had a lot of rain overnight. We couldn’t go into the water as it was too dangerous so we walked back through a field. As we crossed the field we saw 4 little ponies. They came up to us wanting some food. As me and Sunami were at the back of the group we ended up in the field on our own with the ponies. Eventually we got out safely and joined the rest of the group who were waiting for us. Aaliyah.

Marvellous minecraft

Today I went into a mine. I had a marvellous time. Firstly we went onto Level 1. We had a look around and found some marks the miners made to help them extract the slate with gunpowder. As we went further into the mine it got darker and creepier. Then we had to climb onto the second level. When we reached the top we had lunch. It was well deserved as we had been working hard. I had a fantastic time. Abdullah

Canoeing on the river.

We had a great time in the canoes on the river. The river was really wide. We split into two teams and had a race. The other team had a head start and we kept crashing into the bank. Jonny, our instructor, helped us to catch up and then we managed to stop crashing and we won the race. Sumaira.
