Ladybirds Farm Trip

Wow what a brilliant day we have had at the farm! We started by visiting the guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, pigs and horses in the animal barn, then went to play on the big bouncy cushion! We played on the park, in the sand pits and ended by watching the sheep race! Despite the incredibly warm and sticky weather, the children behaved impeccably as always and had a fantastic time. Thank you to all the adults for their help.

Strawberries And Pear Groups Visit To The Farm

What a brilliant day we have had at the farm today. The children behaved impeccably we are all really proud of you. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did, I think we’ll all sleep well tonight.
A huge thank you to our helpers we couldn’t do it without you.

A super day at the farm for Busy Bees!

What a fantastic day we have had at the farm! The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and their behaviour was exceptional! We have seen lots of animals, enjoyed a tractor ride and ran wild in the play areas! A special thanks to our helpers who have helped to keep us safe and to make sure we had a great time!

In Reception we have been learning to double a number by using the phrase “to double 5 I get the same amount again and put them together.”

CHALLENGE: if 12 sweets came out of the doubling machine how many sweets went in on each side?

Beautiful Braids!
