Every Wednesday morning, our walk to school club meet at either the Watstock stile or Somerden and follows the footpaths through to the village, which are approximately 1-1.5 miles.
It is organised and run by Jack Vaughan and Claire Woodhouse and they are always accompanied by a cheery band of parents, carers and well behaved dogs on leads.
Come rain, shine or even snow, walkers gather at the Watstock stile from 8am and Somerden from 7:45am, where they are registered followed with a prompt start at 8:15am from Watstock and 8am from Somerden.
Any walkers arriving after that time, must be accompanied in catching up with the club and handed over to a member of staff. Responsibility cannot accepted for any child that has not been accounted for by a member of staff.
In the event that club is cancelled, we will endeavor to walk on the Friday of the same week instead but parents and carers will be notified in advance.
Whole club destinations are chosen either termly or yearly depending on world events or school topics. Each child's walk contributes towards the whole club's progression along the route. In the past these have included the World Cup in Russia, School residential locations, Rio Olympics, Britain's Coastline, Great Wall of China and Land's End to John O'Groats to name a few.
Every walker's progress can be followed on the display board outside class 3.
Club is open to the whole school and we look forward to welcoming you all on Wednesday mornings.
We will be following the Tour de France route and cheering Geraint Thomas & Team Sky along the 2150 miles!
