Y6 Stump Cross Cavern

On Thursday 21st November, Year 6 visited the Stump Cross Caverns in Harrogate to explore the details and history of caves.  We were taken on a tour, in which we all had to wear hard helmet hats to travel underground in our quest to explore the caves.  In the caves, we had opportunities to see many different fossils, rocks, and more importantly stalactites and stalagmites as part of our geography topic “Frozen Kingdom”. While exploring the cave, we discussed and viewed how these stalactites and stalagmites also established amazing formations, such as “The Cradle” and “The Wedding Cake”. We were also lucky enough to view the phenomenal light show that was displayed in the cave. The children ended their day by watching a movie on the process of formation, while eating their lunch in the cinema room.
