Residential to Low Gillerthwaite Field Study Centre, Ennerdale 2017

  Residential to Low Gillerthwaite Field Study Centre Ennerdale

Children from Years 4,5 and 6 enjoyed the annual outdoor education residential in Ennerdale in June. The weather was generally cool and breezy but mostly dry so it meant that we could enjoy the activities without them being spoilt by rain or excessive heat.

On the first day, we walked from Buttermere to Ennerdale via Scarth Gap. The weather was cool and damp and there was some mist to make it seem more mysterious, but once we began to descend into Ennerdale, it warmed up and the sun came out.

We settled into the centre and enjoyed playing in the large field. Some of the girls choreographed a gymnastics display!

There were lots of animals that lived with the family that run Low Gillerthwaite (ducks, geese, hens, guinea fowl, kittens and dogs).

One day we went pond dipping in the River Liza and found quite a variety of minbeasts and some bigger animals too!

The next day we went canoeing. One group paddled up the lake and the second group paddled across the lake. Both groups enjoyed some silly fun and games, which of course ended up with some people falling in the water.

All too soon, the week was over and after a mammoth cleaning and packing session we walked the length of Ennerdale to take the minibus back to school.
