East Barnby 2019 – Final Update

After another enjoyable day on Thursday, followed by the much anticipated talent show, the children will be tidying their rooms and hopefully getting all their belongings together this morning.
The picture below was taken at Falling Foss Waterfall. After making some rather impressive shelters, we went on to visit a cave carved out of an enormous boulder. Known locally as ‘The Hermitage’, and dating from as far back as the 18th century, it was once the secluded home of a hermit. The woods provided food, fuel, shelter and building materials – we imagined the fortitude required to live such a reclusive life, deep in the woodland shadows.

To finish off our day we visited some rather desolate moorland for a spot of orienteering. As the fog was so dense, each group was supported by an adult. Here is a picture of the eventual winners, who completed the course in 23 minutes and 44 seconds:

Despite the testing weather conditions that have persevered throughout the week; the children have had a wonderful time and represented Crayke superbly well!
We are expecting to leave East Barnby at approximately 2pm – I will contact Mrs. Bacon at this point and provide a more accurate estimate for our arrival back in Crayke. Please check your emails/the school website for the aforementioned information.
Parents/carers will be able to see a range of photographs from East Barnby & Carlton Lodge, when they are added to the monitor at the front of school. There will also be an Achievement Assembly on Friday 28th June where the children will share their favourite moments and photos…

As I am in East Barnby, there will be no Crayke Chronicle this week.
