Before half-term Upper Juniors enjoyed a fabulous week at Hooke Court in Dorset. The following is an account of the week written by Anna Bridge.
The week before half term Upper Juniors went to Hooke Court, which is in Dorset and close to the Jurassic Coast. We all had a lot of fun as we studied the velocity of the River Hooke, and some of us even got our wellies filled up to the top with water! At Hooke Court we also built rockets that we launched – they were amazing and went about eighty metres high! The best day was Victorian Day where we made scones and lots of other delicious things, and four children (two boys and two girls) were chosen from the workhouse to be the servants for Lord and Lady Sandwich. We also went fossil hunting on Charmouth beach, and enjoyed an ice cream after visiting the RNLI lifeboat station at Lyme Regis. On the last evening, we went to a barn dance with a lovely lady called Ruth, who has been teaching the steps to many Ditcham children over the last ten years – this was a fantastic evening! We all had an amazing time!
Thank you to Mr Ainsworth and Mrs Mothersele for organising the trip and to Mr Bennett, Mrs Rowley and Mr Howard who also came along to help and join in the fun.
