This week, year 6 pupils travelled to Lanhydrock House to delve into a Victorian past, exploring every nook and cranny of the country house. We uncovered the fascinating history of the house and its occupants, including a whole suite of rooms dedicated to children and the story of a great fire that forced an almost complete re-modelling of the main building. Each group took on a different role within the house, learning specific details regarding the family, the children and the servants of Lanhydrock. There was also time for a tour of the grounds and a visit to the Parish Church of St Hydroc. The children showed fantastic absorption throughout the day with a genuine sense of awe and wonder, particularly as regards the plasterwork ceiling of the long gallery and ‘naughty’ Tommy Agar-Robartes’ pen-knifed initials! We hope that that the photo gallery gives you a flavour of just what an exciting day we all had.
