Clumber Park Walled Gardens

May 11th, 2015 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

On Friday, Cherry Class went on their trip to Clumber Park.

What a lovely day we had!

First of all we went on a leaf, flower and twig hunt around Clumber lake. Then we stopped and sketched some of the wonderful plants around us before playing on the fun-filled play area.

After a picnic lunch dinner we went to the Walled Gardens with our Learning Ranger, Vicky. She took us on a tour of the glass houses and the different room where all the garden’s equipment is stored. She showed us some really old gardening tools and explained how the gardens were kept many years ago. She also talked to us about the different plants that are grown in the glass houses and what they need to survive. We then went into the gardens and looked at the different types of plants that were growing there. Next we picked some herbs and made a Harry Potter herb potion (which smelt beautiful!) before trying some foods grown in the gardens too!

 

Take a look at some of our pictures from the day:
