Over the last two weeks, each class has been visited by the outreach team from Wordsworth Grasmere. They have delivered a workshop for each class - further enriching the children's knowledge of William Wordsworth.
Last year, all the children, from reception up to year 6, visited Dove Cottage and spent the day in the education centre learning about the life of William and his family and some of the works of William Wordsworth.
It was amazing to hear how much they remembered about their visit last year when the staff from Grasmere questioned them at the start of the school-based activities. They discussed some of the observations the children remembered in more detail and then the children had an opportunity to write with quill and ink. No emails in those days and letters would take days to arrive. How things have changed!
