Cheddar Gorge Adventure

As we are learning about Rocks and Soils and the Geography of our environment this year, Griffins and Phoenix classes decided to take a trip to visit Cheddar and its beautiful sights. 


We drove the long way round so that we could experience the Gorge from its very top and see exactly how deep we were going to be when we were in the caves and how high we were climbing back up those 274 (I'm sure there were more too!) steps and along the cliff path. Oh and not forgetting the tower!


Griffins took on the challenge of Jacob's ladder and finding out how the area looked all those millions of years ago and taking in the amazing view from the top of the tower to see our surroundings now. 


We had build up a huge appetite by the time we came back down and had a quick look in the museum. We were the envy of all, having our lunch overlooking the amazing view of the Gorge. 


After lunch we took our turn in Gough's Cave where Gordon, our guide showed us many amazing sights including the stalactites and stalagmites and all that calcite! He was amazed at how much knowledge the Lympsham School children demonstrated!


All too soon it was time to get back to school, taking the shorter route back.
