Last week Amber class went on a residential trip to Castleton. We began the trip by studying the local river, following a GPS to complete a trail around the village and making egg rockets to blast into the air. The next day we visited Speedwell cavern, where we went on boat down into the cave to see where miners had mined for lead. We then followed this by completing a walk around Castleton, looking at all the different features of the village. When we arrived back at the hostel, we made our own fossils and then experienced a real lead mine. After tea, we then did some gem panning where we searched through sand to find gems! On our final day, we went to Peak Cavern where we went deep into the cave and learnt all about its history.
Miss Landsborough was really impressed with the behaviour of all the students on the trip and thoroughly enjoyed every second!
