Yesterday, all the children in Primary 1 went to Holyrood Palace for a spring walk.
We were very excited to be together, and the weather was beautiful!
First we were taken into the special gardens, which aren’t open to the public at this time of year, and saw where the Queen’s garden party is held each year.
We got a chance to pretend to be soldiers looking after the palace.
We looked out for signs of spring.
We saw some beautiful spring flowers, and got very good at identifying crocuses, daffodils and snowdrops.
Next we were taken into a secret wood, where the Queen has her cup of tea in the morning when she comes to stay. We were very quiet as we listened out for birds and looked for signs of nest building.
Finally we looked for buds and blossom on trees and added them to our pictures. We were lucky enough to spot a squirrel jumping through the trees.
We had a lovely trip, and can’t wait to go back next season.
Thanks to all our helpers for joining us on such a lovely day.
