Kew Gardens

We had a great day out at Kew amongst the beautiful gardens and fantastic glasshouses. We took part in workshops concentrating on Rainforests and on Art in Nature. We learnt lots about the different plants and their environments. To support our learning in the classroom, we visited the Marianne North Gallery to view her amazing paintings. There was also a sculpture trail featuring about 75 different sculptures all set out in the gardens. The Autumn colours were just beginning to show and we all loved the Tree top walk with views over the tree canopy and beyond.

In The Hive (an interactive art installation) we learnt about bees and how they communicate. There was lots to see, lots to do and plenty of walking in the fresh air!

Many thanks to those who accompanied the trip.
