Y5 Trip to Common Wood

On Friday morning Year 5 got out and about on a site visit for a local issue they have been studying. We walked to Common Wood to see the proposed sight of a new housing development on the edge of the Penn Road. This week in English we have been loooking at the High Wycombe local housing plan which contains proposals to build homes around Hazlemere. We have looked at different opinions and read articles from The Bucks Free Press. We also explored the woods on a nature trail – in Geography we have learnt all about the Chilterns and its habitats and wildlife, together with the protected land of the “green belt” and the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    That trip was amazing and the houses shouldn’t be built because the horses won’t have a home ! How would you feel if you had to be relocated?
