Grasmere was the destination for our year three children who travelled to the Lake District to support the work they’ve been doing in their geography lessons.
One of the highlights of the trip came after a boat cruise across Windermere, when our pupils spent the day exploring the house and grounds of Wray Castle.
Here they learned about how the National Trust care for the grounds and how Beatrix Potter’s love for the castle plays such an important part in the history of the Lake District’s tourism industry, before heading back down to the shore for plenty of fun in the adventure playground.
After spending the night at Grasmere youth hostel, the children made the most of the stunning surroundings by discovering the picturesque village and taking a leisurely stroll by the River Rothay.
There was just enough time for lunch by the river and a last-minute dash to buy some famous Grasmere gingerbread ahead of the coach journey home, with the boys and girls having had a brilliant time.
