'Bicton Park Botanical Gardens' to give the full title - ‘Devon’s most magnificent historic gardens’ to quote from their website.
Well we kept our fingers and toes crossed that the weather would improve but unfortunately the rain and wind was in for the day. This did not dampen our spirits, though, and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. When we arrived we went straight to the indoor play area where we all had a go on the drop slide (whilst the teachers watched, holding their breath) and made use of the ball pit.
After that we enjoyed our planting session. We impressed the Bicton teachers with our knowledge and planted ‘sunflower’ seeds and ‘Forget-me-nots’. We enjoyed our lunch and then went on a leisurely train ride around the beautiful grounds. Following this, we visited the museum and greenhouses.
The children were a pleasure to be with due to their enthusiasm for the science learning and their wonderful manners throughout the whole day! Well done Prep One! LG
