As we now have heating in the school room, we started the school days in March this year. This has enabled us to fit in more infant schools. The children are delightful, so full of awe and wonder even though for one school it poured with rain all day. The children ask such wonderful questions, they want to know so much.
We think the best results this year have been with the children’s artwork. To see the look on the children’s faces when they see their work on display makes teaching all worthwhile.
We are so lucky at Copped Hall to be able to call on a wealth of of knowledge from resident horticulturists, archaeologists and historians.
Although this year we did have to compete with the rain, we managed to move lessons around during the day so that the children did not miss out on their time spent in the garden or at the archaeological dig.
As with all projects at Copped Hall, it is the volunteers who are so willing to help us – which makes for such a successful and well run day. To all these volunteers who have helped us this year, we say a big thank you.
