HT3 and HT4 had a great day out on their end of spring term trip to Williamson Park. On arrival, the students were able to enjoy the play park in the spring sunshine. Both classes really enjoyed playing together and exploring a new park.
After a quick snack the young people walked around the Butterfly House, which is home to hundreds of exotic butterflies and birds. The rainforest environment was hot and home to many plants and trees, as well as lots of beautiful butterflies. Students took their time walking around, learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and the different species that lived there. We wondered around the small animal zoo which was home to meerkats, marmosets, lots of different insects and flower beds springing into life. The young people explored the minibeast cave, meeting all the residents in their habitats. We saw frogs, cockroaches, fish, snails, and tarantulas.
The young people climbed up the stairs to the top of the Ashton Memorial building and looked through the telescopes to see the breath taking views to Morecombe Bay and the Lake District fells. To finish our time at Williamson Park, the young people had fun on the climbing frames and zip wire before jumping back in the buses. On our way back to school we dined in McDonalds to wrap up a great day out.
