We went to Durdle Door for the day. It was surprisingly hot as the morning was foggy and cold.
We walked an awful lot but the sites were beautiful, we saw mass movement and erosion.
We walked near lulworth cove. We sat down and had a rest after all of the walking! The lulworth cove has been there for thousands of years. Over time where we were sat, in about five thousand years we will be sitting in the sea, due to erosion.
We then went into a nearby village near the cove and brought some ice cream, everyone was baking hot! Near where the fish and chip shop was Louise Barrah found a £5 note lucky her!!! After that, we all had a wander around the village. Then we got on the coach or mini bus and drove back to school after a long and tiring day. Sadly on the Thursday trip they got held up by traffic! It was amazing day and we advise future year 10s to take this opportunity.

Year 7’s have been studying India. They are taking a “virtual fieldtrip” and have spent the last 3 weeks circling India, studying her physical and human features.
