White Hall Day 4

We awoke this morning to a wintery scene, a perfect blue sky and a hard frost which created a magical panorama of the peaks surrounding the centre. With multiple layers, gloves and hats, our intrepid explorers set about their activities for the day.

A visit to Mouldridge Mine at Pikehall was enjoyed by two groups. Here the children looked at some of the natural features within the cave- flowstone, stalactites and fragments of galena, Group A even managed to spot two hibernating bats deep within the craggy walls.

The children recreated the conditions experienced by the lead miners many years ago by turning off their headtorches and sitting in the pitch-dark and, after crawling and squeezing through the tight spaces (including one aptly known as the toilet, in which the children descended a hole in the cave floor), the groups headed back to the door.

Mountain biking was also on the cards today and the boys and girls tackled the White Hall MTB Course taking on the features including the 'Jabberwocky', the 'Devil's Elbow', the 'Twister' and the 'Pump Track'.

For Group C, it was their turn to tackle the stream scramble in the grounds of the dilapidated Errwood Hall where they ducked under branches and refreshed themselves in the icy waters of the waterfall. After a warm up at the centre, they were back outside zooming down the zipwire and navigating the tricky ropes course.

We also managed to celebrate Cody's 11th Birthday with singing at breakfast and a 'cake' (a banana) festooned with candles at dinner- they wouldn't stand up in the jelly and ice cream!  Happy birthday, Cody.

Day 4

White Hall Day 3

Another perfect day here at the White Hall Centre in which groups A and B completed their Adventure Day on the River Wye.

After spotting Dipper and trout in the gorge, the children battled their fear of heights on the abseil at Millers Dale Viaduct.

Group C enjoyed a trip to the cave, squirming, crawling and squeezing their way through the narrow passageways before developing their off-road cycling kills on the mountain bike and pump track at the centre.

White Hall Day One

The children have hit the ground running on day one of White Hall 2021! Group A has been out of the centre on the Monsal Trail abseiling down Millers Dale viaduct; Group B and D have completed the ropes course, the zipline and the infamous 'Leap of Faith' and Group C have been bouldering and traversing in the newly refurbished indoor climbing wall before going out of the centre to ride around the challenging mountain biking course. If all that wasn't enough- after a hearty dinner- we have also been exploring the centre's grounds whilst playing the 'Woods Have Eyes'.

Kilburn Junior School Lockdown Challenges are Back!

Today I am pleased to announce that the Kilburn Junior School lockdown Challenges are back and their bigger and better than ever before!

During the last national lockdown we set a series of sporting challenges, which we then featured in a montage on our YouTube channel and website. These were incredibly successful and I know many of you really enjoyed taking part. But this time we are going a step further with brand new challenges AND some fantastic prizes!

So I am pleased to announce our first challenge called 'The Great Outdoors'. This is a photography challenge where we challenge you to take a fantastic photo of the great outdoors.
This could mean taking photos of nature, the weather, outdoor hobbies or activities, it could be anything. As long as it relates to 'The Great Outdoors'. You don't even need an expensive camera to take part as phones and tablets will do a fantastic job!

You can submit up to 3 photos and we will be creating a virtual gallery on our website and displaying all of the submission on a brand new display in school. We will also be entering all submissions into a competition where the winner will have their photo printed on canvas by JSPhotography who have kindly sponsored our challenge.

To take part, simply take some photographs of the great outdoors and select up to 3 of your favourite images and upload them to this assignment page by Friday 12th February.
As always, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Good luck, stay safe and we'll see you soon!
