Mount Cook update...

Wow - what an amazing time we’re all having at Mount Cook! We’ve taken part in a range of activities including sensory trail, climbing, fencing, Jacob’s ladder and the amazing zip wire that stretches from the roof of the building right across the site. Lots of us have fought our fears and tried something new, whether that is climbing higher than we thought we could, singing a silly song or trying something new for dinner. Behaviour has been superb and everyone got some sleep, including the teachers! 

We’ll see you all back at school tomorrow!

Mrs Sida, Mrs Horn, Ms Martin and year 5 and 6
