Bosbury School Enjoys New Route Walk and Picnic!

After (like so many events last year) our new and popular whole school walk and picnic had to be cancelled in 2020 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we were very happy this week to be able to don our wellies, waterproofs, hiking boots and rucksacks once more and come together again as a school to embark upon an enjoyable hike around the beautiful countryside we are very lucky to have right on our doorstep at Bosbury.

 

  

 

Rather than going on a circular trek around the lanes and fields north of the village as we have done in previous years (and as our intrepid Year 5 and 6 children undertook during their mammoth near-five mile excursion undertook as part of their camp out extravaganza just seven days previously), by the very kind permission of brilliant Bosbury parents Mr. and Mrs. Blandford we were able to change up the route this year and explore their beautiful apple orchards situated just beyond the metal gate a few yards outside the entrance to the village.

 

 

Miss Cooke and Class 5 once again led the way, and although our seasoned Year 5 and 6 veteran hikers had experienced the benefit of developing their stamina and fitness from walking nearly 8,000 rural metres the previous week, Class 3 and 4 easily kept pace, with Class 1 and 2 in their separate bubble not being far behind either.

 

  

 

So brisk was our pace of walking that we were soon at the halfway point of the route and ready to open up our rucksacks and lunchboxes to enjoy a well-earned and enjoyable lunch in a peaceful clearing. Lots of sandwiches to boost the carbohydrate and energy levels together with the all-important juicy fruit as our lovely pupils engaged in some wonderful conversation which was so refreshing to see after all the lockdowns we have experienced over the last eighteen months.

 

  

  

  

 

As you can imagine, our lovely school dog Mr. Wilf certainly enjoyed himself running back and forth all the way between the front of Class 5 and the back of Class 1, and some Class 3 pupils even took the initiative to have an improvised Sports Day sack race practice in preparation for the big return of one of our favourite annual school events the following day. 

 

  

 

Some of the girls in Class 4 also took the opportunity to practise their playground clapping games - we continue to be impressed by the superb creativity and friendship skills continuing to be shown by our lovely pupils!

 

  

 

A HUGE thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Blandford for kindly allowing us to walk over 140 children, around fifteen adults and a dog around their lovely orchards (we hope we didn't leave too many footprints!), to Scout Master Cooke for once again leading the walk and of course to all of the children who showed simply exemplary behaviour as well as great fitness and stamina over the two miles of countryside we covered.
