Despite the horrible weather, the children have had a fun filled day today. We started off early with a ramble around the picturesque countryside, straight after breakfast, which took nearly three hours! We passed abandoned mine shafts, went through deep forests and descended rocky hillsides. As soon as we got back to The Nightingale Centre, we had little time to change into dry clothes before we were treated to a practical history lesson explaining the origins of where we were staying and its importance in the 1st World War. The children learnt lots of interesting facts and really enjoyed it.
My name is Mr Thompson and I am the class teacher in year 5 as well as the PE subject leader. This is going to be my second year teaching at Park and it is one that I am really looking forward to. Away from the classroom, I enjoy socialising with friends, going to the gym and taking part in a variety of sports.
