Kew Gardens Visit

Year 7 spent a fascinating day at Kew Gardens last week as part of a Humanities Trip. Our student journalist, Lola Lord, took some amazing photographs (below) while she was there and found out a bit about Kew Gardens itself:

‘All Croxley Danes students had the opportunity to participate in a school trip to Kew gardens on Monday 18th June. Kew gardens is a botanic garden with iconic architecture and beautiful landscapes. The garden is surrounded by unique plants and flowers. Kew was developed in the late 19th century. A man called William Chambers built several garden structures including the lofty Chinese pagoda built in 1761 which still remains. It is a plain brick structure known as Kew Palace.’

Mrs Brewer, who accompanied the trip, described the students’ behaviour and attitude to the learning which took place as ‘exceptional’. This is perfectly illustrated in the photo above, which she assures us was not posed!
