On Tuesday, April 29, Grimsthorpe Castle was ‘invaded’ by the Year 1 children from Bourne Abbey Primary Academy.
The children visited as part of their ‘Houses and Homes’ topic, to look at the magnificent grounds and meet with the head gardener, Jim Handley.
The children had the opportunity to plant a broad bean seed and find out about the vegetables and fruits growing in the kitchen garden. They then had a guided tour of the elegant interiors, making comparisons between old and new homes.
All the children had a fun yet informative visit and will use the experience to continue their fantastic learning.
