Lulworth Cove

Upper Two pupils participated in a field trip to Lulworth Cove as part of their Geography studies of ‘coasts’ this week.

Pupils and teachers were met by Kirsten and Derry two excellent rangers from the Lulworth Heritage Centre, who provided them with an engaging educational talk about the Jurassic coast.

All the children created a field sketch of ‘Stair Hole’ where they learnt about coastal features that included: caves, arches, blowholes and stumps. They learnt about the different layers and types of rock, and how erosion is causing the coastline to change.

As the sun shone, we were able to take in the breath taking views looking out to sea and admire Lulworth Cove. After lunch, we all enjoyed the guided coastal walk along the top of Hambury Hill which allowed us to view the spectacular Durdle Door.

Geography Coordinator Miss Robinson said it was a fantastic day. “All the children gained new knowledge that they will be able to apply back in the classroom during their Geography lessons.

"Thank you very much to Mr Ashman, Mr Marshall and Miss Trimming as well as all the parent volunteers who very kindly accompanied us on our trip."
