Dragonflies, Sculptures and Fountains

Our first day of term was one of our most exciting ones as we visited Burghley House. The day started with a sculpture workshop where we made dragonflies out of wire. We learnt how to carefully shape the wire and how to safely use pliers. We all got to make a dragonfly to take home.

We then stepped into the jaw-dropping Sculpture Garden. We saw many different sculptures which we loved exploring. They were all of different shapes and sizes, and made of different materials (clay, nature, steel, wood, plastic...). We learnt about perspective and enjoyed sharing our thoughts about what we saw. This was followed by a very calming and pleasant picnic in the sunshine.


Finally, the time had arrived to step into the Garden of Surprises. We loved getting absolutely soaked, it was the perfect way to cool down! 


To see more of our day, keep an eye out for extra photos which will shortly appear in the 'Gallery' section of the school website.
