Gad’s Hill Kindergarten children took part in Autumnal activities at a local farm, as part of this term’s Harvest topic

The 5-7-year-old Gadshillains took the short stroll to Gad’s Hill Farm to talk to farmer Mr Warnett and learn more about the orchard.

Year two form tutor, Mr Mike Patey, said: “Visiting the farm is a long-standing tradition at Gad’s Hill.

“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 students 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.
