Welcome to Dove Bank

Year 6

Wednesday – Today we visited Alderley Edge Country Park.

Everyone enjoyed exploring the underground mines and the ancient woodlands – especially the very muddy areas!!



21 tired but excited little faces waved back at me as they left the country park to return to Stanton – a fantastic day was had by all.

Note to parents – we try our best to share online photos of every child but this isn’t easy – the children swap groups within groups to ensure everyone has the opportunity to work together.  

Tuesday – We’re having a great time learning bushcraft skills and archery.





We’re having a great time!
