Walnut & Maple Trip to Waddesdon Manor

Walnut & Maple had a wonderful trip to Waddesdon. When we arrived we had a tour of the beautiful gardens and we were lucky enough to be the only visitors so had the whole grounds to ourselves. We had our workshop all about the life cycles of minibeasts and visited the beautiful rose gardens to smell the roses and see which bugs they attracted. We then went to see the amazing birds that live at the manor and we were enthralled by the different types. After lunch we went on an adventure in the woods and followed Alice’s path to the best bug hotel we had ever seen. We had magnifying glasses and looked in all the nooks and crannies to see who was living inside. We then got into groups and designed our own bug habitats. One group added a swimming pool to their bug home with a leaf slide to make sure their residents had lots of fun. In the afternoon we let off some steam in the adventure playground and had a great time on the slides and swings. It was then time to come home. We had a wonderful day exploring the grounds of the manor. I was incredibly proud of how well behaved the children were and said we were a credit to the school.
