First we went on a train to Sheffield. It took about 15 minutes. Then we went off the train and waited 20 minutes for the train to Hathersage then it took about 13 minutes to get to Hathersage.
When we got there, we had a 15 minute walk to get to the centre then we parked our stuff in to our dorms then tried our walking boots on. After that we tried our water proofs on then we went to a grave yard at 7 o’clock with Mr Huthart. It took about 18 minutes and then Rachel sat us down and told us some rules then we went to bed. I was with LiL, Jess, Brooke and Dakota.
The next day we went and had break fast and then we made are sandwiches. We got put in separate groups. Alivia went on a 4 and a half mile walk. First Mr Machin put us in groups and I went with Aaron. We all had a map and we had to look for clips and stamp them on a card. Me and my partner were first to find them all and get them all right. Once we had done that we had to do a course and we were first and guess.
After lunch, we went back to the centre and put some wellies and then we put our water proofs on and then we walked to the stream and tried to catch some fish (I saw a dead fish). Then we went to the deep end of the lake and caught a rubber duck. Then we went to a even deeper end and I fell over twice. I ran as quick as a flash and emptied my wellies. They were half full of water and then we got out and went to the centre and had a shower and put our pyjamas on. Then we had our tea and then we got are sweets and watched Home Alone 1. We then went to bed and stayed up until 3 or 4 in the morning. The the next day we went on a 4 and a half mile walk

At first we got to Worksop train station and then we went on the train. It took half an hour.
After we got of the train, we walked to st Micheal’s Centre. We put are heavy suitcases on the chessboard and went in. We had a tour around st Michael’s and are dormitory’s (they were small). We made our beds and then we got told the rules. The person who told us the rules was a lady called Rachel.
Before we went to bed we watched a film and of course we went to bed while we were watching the film. We were also allowed some sweets before bed.
We got of of the train and took a 10 minute Walk to the center. When we got there, we were talked to by Rachel and then we were taken on a tour of the centre.
After we took a “NIGHTWALK”… through a Graveyard (sounds delightful) with our Amazing Head Teacher Mr Huthart and he told us a scary story.
Then we went Orientiering and I Finished first. Then we did a river walk with was not fun at all.
On the next day we did a massive four mile hike.
Then I finally got home and slept the rest of the day.
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.
