KS1 Trip to Burghley House & Garden
4th July 2019
Next half term in KS1, our topic is secret gardens. To enrich this topic we are planning a trip to Burghley House and gardens near Stamford on the 4 th July 2019.
The gardens and parkland at Burghley were largely designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century. As many of you know, Capability Brown is buried in Fenstanton church. The main visitor gardens at Burghley are the Garden of Surprises and the Sculpture Garden. The amazing contents of the Garden of Surprises are inspired by this Elizabethan garden and are hidden from the outside – waiting to reveal their surprises to those who enter. Features such as the moss house, the swivelling Caesar busts, basins of water, jets and the mirrored maze have been designed to be accessible to all regardless of age or interest, and are particularly enjoyable for the young or those young at heart who enjoy a paddle on a warm day.
We intend to leave school by coach at approx. 9:15 am, arriving there around 10:00am and leaving at 2:20pm to return to return back to school hopefully by 3:05pm. The children would need a packed lunch on the day and will need to wear waterproof footwear. The visit will also include a house tour, educational talk, a fun workshop and a walk around the gardens.
The total cost of £17.50 per pupil will include coach travel to and from Burghley House, insurance, entry into the gardens, a house tour, a workshop and the educational talk.
We are asking for the payment by Friday 24 th May. If we do not have sufficient interest to make the trip worthwhile, we will make our cancellation before we incur cancellation charges so that in that instance, all monies would be returned.
