Our KR, K1 and K2 children took part in Autumnal activities at the local farm as part of this year’s Harvest topic.
The four to seven year-olds took the short stroll to Gad’s Hill Farm to meet farmer Mr Warnett and learn more about the orchard.
Year Two form tutor, Mr Mike Patey, said: “Spending time at a real working farm is a long-standing tradition at Gad’s.
“We are very fortunate to be so close to a small arable and fruit farm, and to have such a strong working connection with Mr Warnett. Our regular visits allow our children to really connect with nature and gain a better understanding of where food comes from.”
The classmates found out how apples and pears are harvested before working in pairs to complete a fun quiz on the season and fruit.
As always, the highlight of the trip was when the children’s beautiful behaviour was rewarded and they were invited to pick and pear and eat it.
