Class 5 and 6 - Visit to Down House
On Thursday 15th and Friday 16th October, Class 5 and 6 enjoyed a wonderful day out to Down House in Keston.
The family home of Charles Darwin was full of beautifully preserved artefacts and wonderful gardens for us to explore. The trip was an excellent opportunity to put our learning about ‘Evolution and Inheritance’ into practice, as the children found out more about Charles Darwin, his journey on The Beagle and the work he undertook whilst living at Down House.
It was a fabulous day out (helped by the glorious sunshine!) and several members of the public commented on how well behaved the children were. It was a lovely opportunity to get out of the classroom and explore the history on our doorstep.
