As part of our Rural Sport PE lessons, a group of pupils from Key Stage 4 took part in an exciting challenge – to do the Dovedale 7 mile walk!
On Friday, 9th May 2014, nine students and three members of staff travelled to Derbyshire for this tremendous outdoor learning experience; we were joined by Coventry’s very own explorer, Mark Wood.
The picturesque 7 mile walk started in the Peak National Park along the Dovedale Valley. We passed some fascinating sights such as Reynard’s Cave, Lover’s Leap, Tissington Spires and the famous Dovedale Stepping Stones.
I am very proud to say that all of the pupils achieved a personal goal. At times, the walk proved tough and we had to adjust our speed to cope with the different terrains. Everyone worked well as a team and supported each other.
I would like to thank Lisa James and Charlie Davies who supported the pupils on the walk.
A great day was had by all!
