Ilam Hall Day 2

What a fantastic day we have had today. 

Both the weather and children have been wonderful - blue skies and a motivated, enquiring group.  We have examined dry stone walls, discovered how limestone was formed, seen mayfly emerging from the waters of the River Dove, explored caves, found and tasted spring water emerging from the rocks, enjoyed hearing tragic tales of romance and even paddled in the crystal clear waters of the river.

The seven miles were gone before we knew it and we were all ready for a wonderfully filling evening meal.  Following this, before bedtime, we played outdoor games and wrote some postcards home. 

Tomorrow we are looking forward to more inspiring scenery, enjoyable learning activities and wonderful weather (we hope).
