Over the last few weeks pupils at King’s House have been enjoying going on school trips to start the academic year.

Year 2 recently visited the London Wetland Centre in Barnes. They braved he cold and rain to build dens for woodland creatures, thinking about here the best location for their den would be and what they would need to build it. They also went pond dipping, where the boys used nets to fish out any creatures that live in a pond, discovering water boatmen and snails. They discussed their diets and how they survive in a pond habitat.

Year 3 visited Butser Ancient Farm on a much sunnier day as part of their topic on Romans and Celts. The boys took part in an archaeological dig, made pottery and worked together to build sturdy Celtic fences. They then learnt how the Celts used to live and what happened when the Roman invasion took over.
