So far on our Year 5 Hathersage residential, we have taken part in some very exciting activities. We all met at Worksop Train Station on Sunday afternoon and, after saying goodbye to our parents, we caught the train to Sheffield. When we arrived at Sheffield Train Station, we then had to board another train to Hathersage.
Once we arrived at Hathersage, we walked from Hathersage train station to St Michael’s Education centre where we would be staying for the next couple of days. After we had met Rachel, the woman who works at the centre, we then had a tour of the centre and found out where we would be sleeping. After this, we unpacked our things and made our beds.
After we made our beds and had our tea, we went on a night walk. On the night walk we walked through Brookfield Manor and up to St Michael’s church on a spooky walk through the graveyard. Once we had done this we returned back to St Michael’s Education Centre and went to bed.
The following morning, we woke up, had breakfast, made our lunches and then got our things ready for our activities. Half of us went on a hike to Stanage Edge while the other half of us completed orienteering challenges and completed a stream study.
