‘Beastly Boring Burghley’ - a children’s guide to Burghley House
Through the booklet children engage with the history and artistic contents of the house. It is hoped that it will encourage children to be interested in this and similar houses. The booklet requires the children to observe aspects of the house and its contents and also gives some of the relating history. The children will use Reading, Comprehension and Observation skills to complete tasks. It will also encourage the children to discuss things with their accompanying adults. It is fun and exciting - set out like a Horrible Histories Comic, complete the booklet to earn your stamps from the front desk.
