 Waddesdon Manor

During our whole trip to Waddesdon Manor, the children had a wonderful time learning about plants and habitats.


Children from KS2 commented:

"The trip was amazing and so fun, we all really want to go again and I hope it will be as good as that!"

"I think this is an amazing place for children to explore the natural world. All of Redwood class would be over-joyed to go back again. This is an inspiring place to go with children."

"We had a wonderful trip to Waddesdon Manor. It was a chilly morning but we were all in the 'adventure spirit'."

"All the birds had stunning plumage".


Some comments from our KS1 children included:

"After that we went to Miss Alice's drive and split into two groups. My group found a snail, a spider and a woodlouse. My favourite bit was everything because I had LOTS of fun!"

"Then we went in the rose garden. One smelt of oranges."

"The birds were beautiful."

"I loved the bugs!"
