Year 4 Residential - Day 1

We had a lovely day yesterday on the first day of our residential. As we got closer to the Lake District and began to notice the hills, rivers and lakes everyone felt very excited. After leaving our bags in the Borrowdale youth hostel, we enjoyed a picnic outside. Then we met the Field Studies Rangers to begin our activities. We had great fun searching the woods and the river Derwent for different creatures. We were surrounded by hills that seemed really high to us but they were not even tall enough to be mountains. 

Look at our photos to see how much fun we are having.
