ALL THE LATEST NEWS, VIEWS AND STORIES FROM AROUND YOUR LOCAL AREA:AUGUST/SEPTEMBER IGNITING A TINY SPARK IN THE ENNERDALE VALLEY...


A wonderful time was had by all on the recent Year 5 residential to Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre in Ennerdale. Celebrating and experiencing everything that this beautiful valley and our locality has to offer was the theme for this year’s residential.


The children were welcomed by members of the Cockermouth Mountain Rescue Team at the start of the three day visit, who then accompanied and encouraged the children on their 8-mile long walk into the valley and to the summit of Bowness Knott, where the views of the valley were breathtaking. During the walk, new friendships began and others were strengthened, as the children supported each other every step of the way. Many demonstrated resilience, overcoming the physical challenge of the climb that at the beginning they didn’t think was possible. The children then continued their walk, descending to Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre that was to be their home for the next three days. During the residential, the children enjoyed canoeing in Ennerdale Water and studying the geography of the valley and the River Liza -


learning first-hand about features of rivers and how landscapes are constantly changing and evolving. The children also had the opportunity to work with Mark Astley, National Trust Ranger, to learn about The Wild Ennerdale Project and the important role of the organisation within our locality.


Learning in the outdoors is something that is at the heart of Eaglesfield Paddle School and our residentials provide the opportunity to bring learning alive and provide experiences for our children, that will hopefully ignite tiny sparks, that will then continue to burn into adulthood enabling them to live ‘life in all its fullness’. Seeing the children’s awe and wonder of such a unique place as the Ennerdale Valley and Low Gillerthwaite Field Centre was very special and hearing them talk excitedly about how they were planning to bring their families to show them where they had been and all that they had experienced was simply wonderful.
