The Great Grounds

On Wednesday 12th July we went on a trip to Great Grounds in Stoke on Trent.

In the morning everybody was very excited for the trip. So we got into line and went onto the coach. After a few minutes we set off. It was kind of long but finally we reached it.

When we got off the coach there were people taking videos and photos and those videos and photos were going on social media, our school website and the news and we reached around 10:26 am. So we went into this massive shed. After we went to the toilet we sat on the wooden benches and the director of the Great grounds was talking to us and also another school. After that talk we got into our groups and started taking part in our fun activities.

Firstly, we went to a place where people chopped, cut and pull wood. The people showed us the chainsaw machine. They also showed us other machines my favorite chainsaw machine is the very long one it’s my favorite because it helps people stay on the ground and the long part will help to get higher branches. 

Secondly, we went to this place where plants grew and surprisingly the teacher who was teaching us was our gardening teacher from school and she is called Mandy. Mandy told us to plant pea’s seeds and those peas seeds are made by drying up a pea and then that pea turns into a seed.

After that pea planting we went to the toilet and had our lunch together.

Finally, after we had our lunch we went on this nature trail walk. We walked across the mud and saw different kinds of trees. We also got to see the boards which showed their plans to do in the woods and one of their plans are to make a classroom made out of dry logs. When we got to the end of the trail we got to a place with long grass and the director said “be careful don’t go on the grass or you will wake up the bees.” He also said you could run in the mowed grass part. After that we went back up to the shed got our coats and bags and went on the coach.

After a long time in the coach we arrived back at school and we arrived around 3:35 pm. everybody in the class enjoyed the trip and it was an amazing experience.
