Duke of Edinburgh – A Review from the Pupils

On Thursday, 28th June, pupils from 4IC took part in their D of E practice expedition.  All pupils thoroughly enjoyed this experience as it proved to be a fantastic vocational activity for them.  Below are accounts written by the pupils.

 

Shona Stein.

On Thursday 28th June, some of class 4IC went on a D of E expedition. We walked from school to Green Archers Campsite. It was 8 and a half miles to get there.

On the first mile, Jack spotted a shortcut. The funniest part was when we met a problem. Uh-oh. There was a stream. Some people were brave enough to jump over it but I got a piggy back from Martin. I was so scared i’d fall in. Martin got wet feet! Eventually we arrived at the campsite. We helped each other put up tents.  The best bit was the BBQ. We cooked sausages and marshmallows. They were scrumptious! For tea we had ration packs and they were as delicious as the hotdogs.  At night time I hung around with the boys for a bit then got ready to snuggle up into my cosy bed.  The hardest part has to be when I had to walk through a field of Cows in order to get back to school. This was hard for me as I have a phobia of Cows but I done it! It felt amazing to be back at school. I felt so happy i’d completed the challenge! We finished of a last day at school eating our delicious Fish and Chips, well deserved.

 

Seth Roberts.

My favourite part was the scenery, yes it was bit cloudy but it was still great.

The hardest part for me were stinging nettles.

I learnt not to go on long works with headaches.

I wish I could have finished the walk. I was looking forward to spending the night in a tent, I love camping.

 

Joshua Gutteridge.

On Thursday at 10:30, we finally packed our bags and we started our walk.  Only seven pupils and three staff members went.  The pupils were Josh, Seth, Tom, Jack, Harry, Shona and Riley. The staff members were Martin, Serena and James.

We stopped at the church in Pilton to take a break and we were past halfway there, after our break was finished, we set off back to our objective and before we knew it we was there. The manager gave us a spot for us to camp and James gave us the stuff to make a tent.

 

 

3MG go Camping

The Mendip School have gone camping mad this week. Classes have been testing out the new tents in the hall in appalling conditions! 3MG had to cope with some torrential downpours with thunder and lightning but luckily managed to stay dry. We will be practicing camping skills during PE lessons this term as part of an ‘Outdoor and Adventurous’ programme of activities.

2MG go to Nunney Castle

2MG have been studying castles this term during their humanities lessons. They had a great trip to Nunney Castle and put all their knowledge to the test! The students created some fantastic sketches of the castle and could name lots of different features including ramparts, drawbridges and a portcullis!

4IC Duke of Edinburgh – Fishing

A big thank you to Martin, Charlie and Steve from Fishwish who have been working with our Duke of Edinburgh group for the last 6 weeks. The students have had a fantastic time and learnt many new skills along the way. We finished our sessions with an all day trip to Higher Farm Fisheries in Shepton Montague where we caught lots of fish in the sun and enjoyed a barbecue!!
