Year 6 & 7
On a beautiful English summer’s day DCPS, pupils from Year 6 & 7 ventured out on an expedition to the Malverns led superbly by intrepid explorer, Mr Gould. Within the first hour we had made it to an obelisk which was situated high on a hill from which you could see Eastnor Castle. The smell of elderflower from the blooming elderflower bushes gave Mr Standing opportunity to share his recipe for elderflower cordial! After a picnic lunch, we traversed our way through woods and made our way along a very up and down ridgeway to our final destination, British Camp on the Herefordshire Beacon. The climb to the final destination summit was made all the more easier by the generous gift of a free ice-cream (Calippos, Twisters, Zooms, Rockets, Fabs – from a sweltering Mr Moss!)
Year 5 had a wonderful day hiking up Cleeve Hill! The weather wasn’t particularly kind, and fog swept over the hill blocking the view for some of the time, but we managed to find a wonderful cave to have a picnic inside, and still had plenty of fun. We even managed to grab an ice cream when we arrived back at school!
Year 4 pupils were taken on an expedition walk next to the river Wye at Symmonds Yat. The children were delighted to take in the breathtaking views and get close to nature. everyone stopped for a well earned picnic and then continued on track to view the wonderful scenery. At the end, everyone enjoyed a well earned ice-cream.
Year 3 loved exploring the magical and enchanted Puzzlewood! They balanced across floating logs, climbed steep steps and got very muddy. The children were delighted to enjoy ice creams after a tiring day of exploring.
What a fab time to be a DCPS pupil!
