EYFS and KS1 have started the new topic ‘Bounce’ with a bang this week by visiting Clip n Climb in Derby. The topic is all about enjoying sport, discovering fun ways to be active and investigating how to be healthy.
In spite of a snowy start to the day, we set off on the coach to Derby and arrived at Clip n Climb ready for our harnesses to be fitted and the safety briefing before entering the climbing arena. The children were wowed by the height of the interesting and colourful walls and couldn’t wait to get started!
Climbing on a climbing wall was a new experience for many of our children and they all grew in confidence during our hour session in the climbing arena, trying to climb a bit higher each time they tackled a new wall. Some children even managed to climb right to the top of some of the walls!
We had rather a snowy return journey, including walking back to school from Matlock Green and we arrived back at school looking like arctic explorers and very ready for our lunch! We were so proud of the children for their determination and enthusiasm during the morning.
