Year 5 Visit To Coombe Hill
Year 5 ended a busy week with a trip to Coombe Hill near Wendover. We wound our way through the Chilterns to this lovely spot where we stood right on the edge of the escarpment and admired the view. We could see right along the ridge where the Chilterns drop into the Vale of Aylesbury and Oxfordshire. The children were impressed by how far you could see even though it was rather grey and cloudy. We spotted Chequers nestled in the countryside and could see as far as Waddesdon. We also looked down on the edge of Wendover to see the proposed route of High Speed 2. Next week we are writing letters to the Prime Minister giving our views of HS2. We sketched the view beyond the Boer war memorial. In spite of us all feeling a bit chilly up on the hill, we had a good morning out and about in the beautiful countryside of our local area.
