School trip

Tuesday this week was Year 5's school trip to the the lovely River Cuckmere on the South Downs.
When I left home at about 8.30 the weather didn't look too bad but I'd packet a waterproof jacket, just in case!
Well........what lovely weather we had...not! We encountered every kind of British weather going, wind, rain, sun, you name it, we had it. I had decided to wear a pair of lightweight trousers so that if we did have the odd shower they would dry quickly. Little did I know that after an hour they would look like I'd just taken them out of the washing machine and put them on!
The views certainly made up for it though as you can see.

The famous view below is of the lighthouse houses that are extremely close to the cliff edge these days!

The sun did make an appearance in the afternoon and typically British like we all complained that we were too hot!!

A fun day was had by all even though I was absolutely exhausted by the end of it!
I'm off to the Boot Fair tomorrow looking for more plates so I'll let you know next week what goodies if any I find. Have a lovely weekend.


  1. So British to moan about the weather, I do it all the time, too hot, too windy, too much rain! Looks like it was a fun day out though despite this. Bethx

  2. It is me again .... in 18 years of Reception class trips I know exactly what your day would have been like! Still it's always something to remember in the staff room in years to come! With a smile!!
    Happy days :0)
