Year 4 visit Gatton Manor…..
Year 4 had a fantastic ‘Stunning Starter’ to their Summer term topic entitled ‘Into the Woods’. They went to Gatton Park where they started the morning off with some environmental art. They explored colour, shape and texture through creating an artist palette using natural materials, sketching in the Japanese garden and creating crowns out of different texture natural materials. After a well-deserved lunch some time was spent in the classroom using magnifying glasses and identification sheets to try and determine different species of pond animals. The children then took a wander down to the lake where they did some pond dipping of their own and found a wide range of pond creatures. Thank you to Mrs Gibson, Miss White, Mrs Sayles and Mrs Newland for all their help on the trip.
