Day 1 - The Deep. All the children arrived safely at their first destination - The Deep. Children explored a range of environments at different depths of the ocean and saw a variety of marine life - the penguins appeared to be really popular. They also had a workshop discovering fossils and how they tell us so much about the past.

Dear Mr Follen
I just wanted to email you to say what a fabulous day we have had today with your Year 6 children. As you know we host a visit for your Yr6s, at the Moors National Park Centre, whilst they stay at Cober Hill on their residential.
Your children are brilliant.
They are focussed, engaged and come with many questions about the habitats and animals of the North York Moors National Park.
Your staff are equally as good and rather than view their visit with us as a day free from teaching and responsibility, they are actively involved and helpful, ensuring the children get as much from their visit as possible. They ensure the children are fully primed and ready to learn. Your school has been using our services for many years and your visits are one of the highlights of our year, we really do look forward to welcoming you all.
Please do pass on my comments to all staff and children as they are a real credit to your school.
With Kind regards
Head of Education and Youth Engagement
