Fort Henry Walk

The weather was glorious today for our annual walk to Fort Henry. 


Miss Bevins led the way and the children were able to walk at a pace to suit them, as long as they didn't try to walk behind Mrs Davis! Parents and relatives joined us to walk, and some of our new starters for September were there too. It was lovely to have them with us.


The fields across to Fort Henry were beautiful, and the path was bordered by beautiful poppies, both red and purple. We made super-quick time, arriving in 40 minutes, leaving time to roll down the hill before  Mrs Wardle arrived with the packed lunches. The children enjoyed spreading out in the field to eat their lunches, before we walked further down the hill to catch a glimpse of Fort Henry itself across the lake. The trees are growing up around it now... I wonder if we will still be able to see it next year?


We were a little slower on our return to school (!), but everyone made it back in one piece, before we retired to classrooms for a drink and a rest after a lovely walk. 


More pictures to follow on Monday.
