On Friday 15th June, year one went on a trip to Wrest Park. The children walked down to the beautiful house and English Heritage were kind enough to allow us free entry. We were provided with an education room as a base which was really helpful! We then started to explore, we started by going to the orangery and discovering that they once kept orange trees in there. Then we saw how they were looking after Wrest Park when we saw the work that was being done on the Bowling Green building. We then ventured down to the pavilion and braved the very steep steps to see what was inside. After we wandered back to the education room it was time for lunch. The children loved the opportunity to play on the grass and have a picnic together. Then we went into the main house to find out how the house was used during the first world war and about the De Grey family. After a quick (but very appreciated) visit to the playground we went back into the gardens to sketch the flowers and statues. This trip would not have been possible without the support of the parents that accompanied us and the Wrest Park staff. The children had a fantastic day and you can see more pictures of our trip on the class pages.
