Stockley Trail walk – January 2023

The class topic for Spring term 1 is ‘The Appalachian Trail to the Everglades’. To help the children gain a better understanding of these two regions, we walked along the Stockley Trail and visited the wetlands at Carr Vale (a small version of the Florida wetlands).

The Stockley trail walk was approximately 4 miles. The Appalachian Trail is 2,200 miles long. This fact highlighted the scale of the Appalachian Trail to the class, who were fairly tired after walking the length of their local trail.
