First Overnight School Trip for Year 4

Year 4 boarded their coach bound for Lulworth on their first overnight school trip. We were all very excited about seeing Durdle Door and having fun on the beach. From the cliffs we sketched the caves, arches and stacks, and then went down for a paddle and some exploring. We then trekked over the hills to Lulworth Cove for an ice-cream and back to the hostel! We loved being taught outside instead of in the classroom and seeing all those coastal features for real was fascinating.

On Monday 18th June, Year 4 boarded their coach bound for Lulworth on their first overnight school trip. We were all very excited about seeing Durdle Door and having fun on the beach. From the cliffs we sketched the caves, arches and stacks, and then went down for a paddle and some exploring. We then trekked over the hills to Lulworth Cove for an ice-cream and back to the hostel! We loved being taught outside instead of in the classroom and seeing all those coastal features for real was fascinating.

Back at the Youth Hostel, we had to make our own beds! It was actually much more fun than we expected as we had to work as a team in our dorms to get it done. In the evening we decided the best bits of the day were the walking, views and ice-cream! The next morning we had to strip our beds and make our room neat and tidy before a huge cooked breakfast.

Then we walked through the village noting the effects of tourism and visited the Heritage Centre where we learnt loads about the Cove and the Jurassic coast. We had a picnic on the hill and then boarded our coach home, tired but very happy! We really loved our Lulworth trip!
