Angels project - St. Marie's Cathedral

 Year 5 visited St. Marie's cathedral today and participated in a project to create angels for Advent. The children had a guided tour of the cathedral to spot find images of angels (217 in total!) and got into costumes to describe aspects of what an angel is like, in dress and manner.

The children then worked extremely hard to make an angel of their own, from art and craft materials. These angels will be hung up within the cathedral for advent, so the children can see them if they are visiting the cathedral at Christmas time.

The Eyam Walk

The sun was shining for us on our final day at Eyam as we set off on the Friday walk. The views were amazing as we trekked up and down hills from Eyam to Stoney Middleton and back to Eyam. It was lovely to see children pointing out landmarks and passing on their knowledge to the many parents who were able to join us for the day. Well done Year 5 for a fantastic residential!

Eyam Day 2

Today was very educational. First, we visited a lovely calming church. Then the museum was very interesting with its artefacts. We watched a short video about Eyam and saw all the plague symptoms (It was disgusting!) After that the tour was informative about the village and its past. We saw all the graves of important people. Also, we saw a tomb in a garden with horses in it and in the church yard Catharine Mompesson’s tomb too. Then we split into three groups. We went to the park three times. Today was really good fun. We went to Cucklet Delph. It was very muddy, yet we survived! It was such a walk back to youth hostel. Overall, we had a fantastic day and the ghost hunt is yet to come...!

Eyam Day 1

Today Y5 went to Eyam on a residential to learn more about the plague. We set off on our residential at 9.30 in the morning. We arrived at Magpie mine and explored the remaining parts of it. We did some small activities and then we took a small walk to find a suitable place to eat our packed lunch. Then we walked to Ashford park. We had a great time at the park and there was so much entertainment. We got our coats and bags then we set off for the coach.
Next, we settled down in the youth hostel by making our beds and sorting our clothes out. Then we walked to Mompesson’s Well to discover anything we could about it. After that Mrs Fenton read a book to us by the well. After the book we found a piece of lead with writing carved into it. Then we walked back to the Youth hostel and had 15 minutes to tidy up our room and wash our hands. Then it was tea time. We had a choice of pepperoni or margherita pizza, jacket potato or even pasta. With the pizzas we had chips, and a choice of either beans or peas. With the jacket potato there was just beans. Then for pudding we had choc ice, sultana sponge or fruit salad. Then we had 15 minutes before we had supper.
