Bear Grylls’ Letters get a response and a visitor!

A few months ago Year 5 wrote letters to Bear Grylls. In response to this, Bear sent Anna Humphries into school to visit us. Anna is a qualified Mountain Leader, Duke of Edinburgh Instructor and Climber. With over 10 years experience in the outdoors, Anna has developed a keen interest for skiing, parascending, climbing, running and mountaineering; and in April 2018, Anna climbed Everest Base Camp and in May of the same year, was part of the first female team to Stand Up Paddle Board the English Channel. She has worked with the Bear Grylls Survival Academy for 4 years. Anna delivered a great presentation about her own expedition to Everest and her experience of working for Bear Grylls. We then got to go outside to try altitude masks to get a a feel what it was really like for her.
