Y4's Adventure in Lulworth Cove

On Monday 10 June, Year 4 headed off to Lulworth Cove for their first overnight trip. The weather forecast was none too brilliant, but everyone donned their waterproofs and set off. The picnic lunch on the hillside at Durdle Door was great, but the rain began as they walked down to see the Door up close, and by the time they got there it was torrential!  Undaunted Year 4 continued to the beach for fossil hunting, beach art, looking at ways to save the environment and to study coastal features! After their adventure they thoroughly deserved a warming hot chocolate in Lulworth, before walking to their hostel where they enjoyed a hearty supper. 

The next day was brighter, and everyone learnt so much from the ranger at the Education Centre, who explained about Lulworth's unique rock structure caused by tectonic plate movement giving it World Heritage status, fossil formation, coastal erosion and the changes in Lulworth over time. After a picnic lunch in the sunshine, it was time to head home after a truly excellent trip and all of Year 4 have some wonderful memories.
