Mrs Wain's Skydive
Our Easter event this year is slightly different. Mrs Wain is taking part in a tandem skydive at Skydive Hibaldstow, on Saturday 2nd April, to raise money for our school council playground project. We are hoping to raise £1000 and you can donate on the Just Giving page.
The children have been invited to take part in a design a t-shirt competition. One design per year group will be chosen and printed on a t-shirt that she will wear on the day.
On Saturday 2nd April at 9.30am I checked in at Skydive Hibaldstow, to do my tandem skydive. After a briefing and a short training session, the only thing left to do was wait for my name to be called.
I didn't have long to wait, at approximately 10.30am my name was called and I met my instructor to prepare for the jump. My instructor was Rob and put me at my ease straight way. After putting on the special suit and the t-shirt designed by some of the children at school, I was helped into a harness which eventually would be attached to my instructor's harness. When all the safety checks were complete it was time to get on the bus to have the 2 minute drive to our plane.
We boarded the little white plane, in lovely sunshine and we were soon making our way up to 15,000 feet. During the flight Rob told me what would happen when we were ready to jump and at 10,000 feet he began to tighten my harness and attach us together. 15 minutes after take off the door opened and it was time to jump.
When the door was opened, the cold swept through cabin and the noise of the wind and the engine was almost deafening. At this point my heart was racing with a mixture of fear and excitement.
After what felt like seconds it was my turn to jump. Remembering my training and everything Rob had told me in the plane I sat on the floor with my legs hooked under the plane and in a heartbeat we were free falling at 120 miles per hour. The extreme cold initially took my breath away and within seconds I couldn't feel my face or hands. I found out later the temperature was minus 30 degrees when we jumped. It was the most amazing thing I have ever done, 60 seconds of spinning in the air, arms outstretched looking at the clouds around me and land below.
All too quickly the parachute cord was pulled and the free fall was over.
From this moment on everything stood still for a while as we floated down. Rob gave me control of the parachute, and under his guidance began to swing left and right. I could see the Humber Bridge in the distance and tiny buildings underneath us. There was now a feeling of calm after the thrill of free falling, all I could hear was the breeze rustling the parachute and Rob's voice.
In what felt like the blink of an eye we were preparing for our landing and I would be left with memories of an absolutely amazing experience that pushed me way outside my comfort zone.
The skydive has raised over £1000 up to date and I would like to thank everyone who has supported me, families, staff and the children for designing the t-shirt and for their overwhelming excitement. Your support and generosity will help buy a piece of fixed playground equipment for the children to enjoy for years to come.

We had a great Red Nose Day this year. The children came to school wearing red clothes and some had Comic Relief boppers and red noses. We enjoyed lots of different activities throughout the day including building habitats out of Lego, designing our own red nose, colouring, word searches, told jokes and lots more.

We asked for donations to be sent directly to Comic Relief.
