Jupitar Artland 07/7/15
The Neighbourhood Group’s first summer outing was at Jupiter Artland, based at Wilkieston.
The space itself has formal gardens, fields and woodlands surrounding the historic Bonnington House and Manor. There are various walks that the group participated in with many artworks and sculptures along the way. The group had a good day and enjoyed seeing the art.
The staff were very helpful and set up a marquee for us to have our lunch in which was lovely!
Dynamic Earth 9/7/15
The Neighbourhood Group went on their 2nd trip to Dynamic Earth as part of their summer programme. The staff at Dynamic Earth were fantastic and arranged the entire day for the group.
We firstly started with a tour which included being on a time machine which was very exciting! We then went to see an Astronaut film in the 360 degree showdome, with explosive surround sound! It was an experience for sure.
We then went onto two workshops, firstly, a dinosaur exercise where there were dinosaur fossils and the group then went onto make clay dinosaurs, great fun!
The last part of the day was a workshop about Weather, which involved electricity experiments and tornado experiments.
The group had a fantastic day and would love to go back again the future.
