Donington Le Heath Manor House

The children in Year 2 & 1 enjoyed a fantastic trip to Donington Le Heath Manor House. The visit allowed the children to ask eyewitnesses from 1605 questions about the Gunpowder Plot and the plotters. This trip really enriched their historical studies and brought history to life in a unique way. The children also had the opportunity to participate in hands on activities, exploring toys from the past, quill and ink writing, brass rubbing and dressing up.
