We’ve had a very successful journey down to Cornwall, we left the dreary London skyline to arrive in sunny St Ives.
After unpacking we tucked into some pizza and then headed out to the beach for some fresh air and games.
We spent the day at a community run, organic farm in St Just.
Students learnt about chickens and how eggs are classified, permaculture, the importance of bees and how we can help them in our own gardens and some mindfulness in the woodlands.
At lunch time we had a delicious feast made from produce from the farm and came away with a goodie bag of local honey.
We had a fantastic time at the Eden Project. Students started off in a workshop about the importance of rainforests, exploring the Jungle Biome and identifying plants for eating, medicine and timber.
After lunch they set about creating the most structurally sound and waterproof shelter for a storm simulated by their teachers!!
Free time allowed us to explore the Mediterranean Biome and browse lovely souvenirs in the gift shop.
We had a fantastically cultural day. Students enjoyed both Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum in the morning. We then wandered around the streets of St Ives, popping into souvenir shops before enjoying a Cornish pasty and some ice cream at the Minnack Theatre.
Headed back home to London for a rest!
