5B residential – day 1

Thursday 25th May | 7 comments

The children from 5B arrived safely at Ribblehead to some beautiful sunshine.  After having lunch and waving off the children from 5L, the children had a tour of our lodge and made their beds (some with some ‘interesting’ results).

The next challenge was caving close to Ribblehead viaduct.  The children, led by Charlie Pyatt got suited and helmeted and headed underground to explore the caves.  All the children were very brave with most attempting the challenges.  We were very proud of all of the children.  Although the caves were fairly dry, we still got lots of water in our wellies which ended up on a couple of children’s heads when we got back to the lodge!   Trying to remove Fraser’s wellies was a challenge in itself…

The children also took part in a river study where they looked at different features of rivers and showed off their knowledge.

After all the excitement, we came back to the lodge and had a slightly late meal of tomato soup with fresh bread rolls, followed by a pasta bake with garlic bread.

We headed out on our night walk just after 9pm armed with our torches ready to explore the surrounding area.  We had a lovely walk and arrived back at the lodge just before 11pm where we ended the evening with a hot chocolate and biscuit before getting ready for bed.

Despite some of the children claiming to not be tired, every child was in bed by 11.20 and asleep by 11.40.  Hopefully everyone will have a good night’s sleep ready for cycling at Gisburn forest and Ingleton waterfall trail on day 2.

Photos will follow shortly.
