Year 3 Field Trip – Biddulph Grange

Our Year 3 class enjoyed a picturesque visit to Biddulph Grange this week to explore trees and plants, and how they appear during Autumn. The class has been learning about Autumn in Art, and used this opportunity to create their own fresh leaf collages.

Biddulph Grange has beautiful Victorian design gardens, with displays of trees and plants creatively placed on a global journey from Italy, to China and America. Some of the features included collections of rhododendrons, summer bedding displays, a stunning Dahlia Walk and the oldest surviving golden larch in Britain, brought from China in the 1850s. A surprise display included an amazing Sphinx which tied in very well with their current History topic of Ancient Egypt.

Overall, an informative and fun cross-curriculum trip to a National Trust attraction; and an opportunity to ponder upon the innumerable magnificent creations of Allah ﷻ 

“And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees – of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe.” The Holy Quran, Surah Al-Anam, Verse 99
