Once a half term our Key Stage 2 children and their families are invited to take part in a ramble through the countryside. We have covered many local beauty spots on our walks:
We met at Rivington Barn and explored the area towards the Pike, returning to the Barn for refreshments at the end of our walk.
The Jumbles Reservoir is a very popular walking spot. We took our children one autumnal Sunday morning and enjoyed a ramble around the shores of the reservoir.
On Rememberance Day, we hiked up the hills to Affetside and held a two minute silence to remember those who died in the War.
At Christmas time our walk takes place at the Entwistle Reservoir. There is a tradition at the reservoir for families to decorate the trees and bushes with Christmas messages for loved ones. Our school family write messages on card baubles which we laminate. Our Walking Club chose a tree and decorate it with our messages during their walk. We finish off the morning at the Strawbury Duck where we enjoy coffee, juice and mince pies.
