On Monday 16th May the whole school visited Beresford Dale as part of the school’s application for the ‘Ambassador Award’. The National Park rangers Rose and Julie led this session with staff support. After many dry days the heavens decided to open on our visit, fortunately it was warm and didn’t rain for the entirety of the visit. We travelled via mini-bus to Beresford Dale and walked back along the Dale, through Morson’s Wood and back to Hartington School for a well earned lunch.
The children looked at pond/river life, plants, animal habitats, who is likely to visit the Dale and how it was formed thousands of years ago. The work undertaken is part of the science curriculum and will provide a further ‘springboard’ into other tasks and activities to promote knowledge and language development.
