Reception, year 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from a trepid explorer and mountain leader called Richard Betts from his company, Pied a Terre Adventures. He came to talk to the children about what life is like as an explorer and particularly about the kind of equipment he uses when climbing in the mountains. The children dressed up in climbing gear and learnt how to stay safe in the mountains and how to use an ice axe. They looked at the equipment and clothes he needs for this and they had lots of fun learning about some of the similarities and differences between the famous explorers of over 100 years ago and the challenges that are still faced today.
