Year 3’s recent adventures have seen them explore the beautiful world heritage site at Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. The children had a marvellous day in the sunshine surrounded with some of the world’s finest natural beauty. During the day, they learnt about the different rocks which make up the area and the biodiversity which have made their habitats there. They were able to handle different kinds of rocks and can now discuss the properties of five sedimentary rocks including; portland, purbeck, wealden, greensand and chalk. Year 3 were also lucky enough to walk to Stair Hole to see how the sea’s erosion has taken effect.
In the afternoon, we were driven to Durdle Door where we were amazed by its stature and beauty. The children were simply in awe. The children impressed us most when walking back to Lulworth Cove. Taking the higher path so that we could get a clear view of the coastline, the children scaled a steep hill to then walk gingerly down the slope on the other side. They were incredibly resilient and persevered in the face of this challenge. We could not be prouder of this fantastic year group whose behaviour was brilliant also. What a great day out in our wonderful world!
