Year 7 Humanities Trip to Dorset

During the Curriculum Enrichment Week, the Humanities team arranged for Year 7 to take a trip to Dorset. Students went to two out of three locations – Monkey World, Tank Museum and Lulworth Cove. 
Joe Clayton, 7M has given his account of the day. Joe visited the Tank Museum, and Lulworth Cove: 
“The main thing I enjoyed about this trip was the Tank Museum, because there were lots of things to learn. We found out about the birth of the tank, right through to modern day tanks. One of the first tanks was called ‘Little Willie’ because it was meant to mock the German Kaiser Wilhelm. Then the tanks just got bigger and bigger! We got to see a replica of a WWI trench that showed what it would have been like for the soldiers. Finally,   we were able to sit inside a real Mark IV tank. It was very cramped!  
We also visited Lulworth Cove. It was a great place for a school trip, because there was an amazing view. We learnt about all the different types of rock such as Purbeck, Chalk and Portland stone. There was one place with a blow hole, a cave, a stump and an arch all in one area. It was great to see as we have not long ago learned about that in Geography. There was also an amazing pebble beach, a sweet shop, and an ice-cream shop! 
Overall, the whole trip was really good and everyone really enjoyed it!”
