Larch and Kingfishers Classes

Our trip to the March Foundation

On Monday we traveled by our minibus to Greensleeves House to see Mrs Glossop, Mrs Munn and Mrs Ottley at the March Foundation. As soon as we arrived, we put on our wellies and followed Mrs Glossop’s lead on a walk to an old water mill. The water mill was no longer in operation, but the house it is attached to, is occupied by residents.

Once we had looked at the water mill and where all the water travels to, we continued our walk along the canal, through some fields, towards a very old church. The church was listed in the Domesday Book during the 11th century. We looked inside the church at the old features before making our way back to Mrs Glossop’s house.

After lunch, we had some time to do some observational drawing and also potted some pansy plants to take back to school. Just before we had to say goodbye, we had time for a quick treasure hunt around the garden.

We had had a fantastic day. The next day back at school, we wrote thank you letters to thank Mrs Glossop, Mrs Munn and Mrs Ottley for all our adventures!

    What a great experience for the children. They look delighted to be engaged in such practical activities in a wonderful setting and with good weather thrown in too!
