Year One set off on their first trip this year to The Asean Sculpture Park, Lake Gardens.
After a quick but exciting bus journey, the children arrived at the park, greeted by plenty of helpful and enthusiastic parents. The children boosted their energy levels ready for the trip ahead by eating their snack in the shade while having a look around at the sculptures they could already spot.
Despite the scorching weather, the children set-off on their sculpture hunt around the park. They looked very closely at each sculpture, thought about what materials the sculptor may have used to make them and what they looked similar to. They finished their trip climbing the stairs leading them to the National Monument. The National Monument is a sculpture which was built in remembrance of the brave soldiers who died fighting for the independence of Malaysia.
This historic sculpture has also marked its place in the book of records for being the tallest freestanding group of bronze sculptures. After a fantastic morning looking around, the children then returned to the bus heading back to school in time for their lunch. The children chatted excitedly about what sculpture they would create, what materials they would like to use and how big they would make theirs in the following weeks in class.
