All the children in P4 and P5 spent an interesting day at Dove Cottage, Grasmere learning about the life and works of William Wordsworth.
The day started with an introduction and then a lesson about the life of William and the inspiration for his poetry writing.
The children planned their ideas around their own illustrations and shared them with the group.
After lunch, a tour of the cottage and gardens gave the children first hand experience of the living conditions. They asked, and answered many questions and compared the house to houses today.
The museum gave them an opportunity to learn more about Wordsworth and there was a fun treasure hunt and art activities to complete as well.
An excellent day
