On Wednesday we visited Kew Gardens with Nursery. We were very excited to travel on the coach and we particularly enjoyed that Reception got to sit at the top! We had a great view of lots of landmarks on our journey.
While we were at Kew we visited The Hive, had an educational session with two Kew Gardens teachers about Growing and visited the Children's Gardens. We also got to have our lunch inside a giant teepee tent. The weather was very rainy all day but we didn't mind! In the children's garden there are 4 metal slides which we really enjoyed and the rain made us travel down them even faster! We were all very sensible and we were so lucky to have lots of extra adults helping us. Thank you very much to all the parent helpers who helped to keep us safe on our trip!
