Kendal Mountain Festival
Years 5 and 6 had a fantastic time at the Kendal Mountain Festival. As well as seeing some inspirational adventure films, we were treated to an exciting (and at times explosive!) science and nature presentation about jungles, oceans, volcanoes and glaciers from adventurer and scientist, Huw James. Then we enjoyed listening to Robert Macfarlane talking about the magic of words and how his poems are spells to reawaken our understanding and knowledge of the natural world. The last speaker of this amazing session was Alistair Humphreys talking about adventure and how we are all adventurers and explorers in our own right. We were thrilled to meet real-life authors, and to have the opportunity to speak to them. It was great to be a part of such a brilliant event.
