Our trip to Croxteth Country Park and Hall

Date: 6th Jul 2017 @ 8:26pm

We have had a brilliant day today at Croxteth Country Park. We went to enhance our learning about two topics we have studied recently - homes and habitats. 

We started our time at the park by looking around the hall and comparing it to our own homes. The children counted the rooms in their own house and then guessed how many were in the hall. They were very surprised to learn there were over 200 rooms in the hall.  

We had a look around downstairs first, where the kitchens are. We talked about where the people in Victorian days got all their food as they couldn't just pop down to the supermarket.  The children were very surprised to see fingerprints in the bricks that were made by young children handling hot bricks. 

After we had looked around downstairs we went into a classroom and had a fabulous time handling artefacts from the olden days. We guessed what some of them were. 

Next, we moved upstairs to have a look at where Lord and Lady Sefton spent their time.   The weather was really kind to us so we were able to have lunch outside. Thank you for our picnic, Paula.  We had a bit of time to run around leaving us just a little time to have a look around the beautiful walled garden. 

We run out of time for our mini-beast hunt!  

It really was an interesting day. The children, as always when out on trips, were brilliant. The staff at the hall were very kind and helpful.  Thank you to Chris, Dave and the ladies in the shop who looked after us brilliantly. The children gave Dave a rendition of Any Dream Will Do to thank him for looking after us. 

A brilliant day, thoroughly recommended!
