Drawing of the words 'Lake District'

Discover the Lake District with help from a Cumbrian Primary School

19 July 2018

School’s out for summer! So there’s no better time to share a guide to the perfect Lake District summer created by the year 6 class at Our Lady and St Patrick’s Primary School in Maryport. Class teacher Miss Nattrass tells us why her class wanted to share their ‘locals view’ of the National Park.  

“My Year 6 Class have been learning everything about the National Park! We have explored the natural landscape, the effects of tourism and delved into the hidden gems that the Lake District has to offer us, as residents and visitors alike.

”We challenged ourselves to write a leaflet encouraging people to visit this incredibly beautiful part of the world. We discussed the importance of descriptive language and how it has the power to create an image in the readers mind leaving them yearning for more.

”We are tremendously proud of what we have achieved and would love to share it with you, we hope it inspires you to visit the Lake District and also help you plan your Lake District trip!  

“Here are a few sentences from our Year 6 children:

‘The Lake District beckons you to come and enjoy the glimmering lakes and rolling hills, located in the North West of England. ’ Losha A

‘If you decide to come, you will make memories bursting with fun in this truly infectious pocket of paradise.’ – Olivia A

‘Twist and turn through the forest, or enjoy the bush craft activities, where you will learn how to survive in the forest at Go Ape!’ – Tyler B

‘Filled with adventure, the Lake District is home to relaxing strolls, challenging hikes and stunningly breath-taking views. Bathed in sunlight, the incredible Scafell Pike stands at an impressive height of 978m and is a remarkable challenge for anyone willing to give it a go!'– Macie C

‘The Lake District has ‘mountains’ of outstanding attractions for all ages!’ – Brooke E

“The children have worked so incredibly hard on these pieces of work and these quotes are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the gems that their writing has to offer.”

How does the Lake District inspire you? We’d love to hear. Share your photos with us on social media using #LakeDistrictSummer.
