Year 3 enjoyed a local visit to Kenwood House this week as part of their Local History topic. We began our day with a beautiful sunny walk to Kenwood through Highgate Village. When we arrived at Kenwood house pupils were organised into groups for entering the house. Green Class enjoyed their tour first whilst Emerald class had their break and enjoyed many games on the green.
Pupils found that the tour of the house was highly interesting and added to their understanding of what life was like during the time period. Highlights included seeing the renowned Robert Adam interiors and the exquisite artwork from the Old Masters, and the stunning landscape of Hampstead Heath featuring intriguing sculptures and architecture to explore. Pupils also received insight into Britain’s role in the creation and abolition of the transatlantic slave trade through discussion of key figure Dido Belle.
