Half Term Fun – History Trail at Richmond Park
Just over 50 children came to the trail on Thursday 27th November and the group were treated to a session where they got the opportunity learn more about the history of Richmond Park.
Families were treated to viewing items from the Hearsum Collection and took part in a little session learning about the park with a model that was made by Monique especially for the event as shown in the picture above.
Lots of facts were learnt through a geology session based on the Thames such as why the western side of the park overlooks the Thames Valley. There was also a hand-on session at prehistoric King Henry’s Mound with handling of 100,000 years old axes, calligraphy hands-on near Poets Corner and poetry reading at Poets Corner.
