Sweet strawberries in the sunshine

Today, Year 1 traveled to Stonepitts Farm in Kent to try our hand at strawberry picking!

Through our topic, Let’s Be Farmers we have learned all about fruits from around the world and the differences between where and how they grow!

We picked a punnet of strawberries each and even got to taste some – they were yummy! Then, we enjoyed some countryside air and summer sunshine whilst we ate our lunch.

Thanks to all of the parents who came today, we had such a great time with you all.

Have a look at what we got up to!

Didn’t we have a lovely day…. the day we went to Whitstable!

Bright sunshine and lots for Year 2 to see at the seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its oysters! As the coach drove through the town we notices lots of differences and similarities with New Cross and Horton Kirby, such as a supermarket, wide roads, lots of traffic, houses that were close together. At the harbour, we expected to see the boats but were surprised to see the all the industry. Luckily, a kind stall-holder in the market explained how to open and clean an oyster. Some of us were tempted to try eating one, but we held back!

After that, we heard how the Lifeboats help to save lives.

Then we walked on through the harbour and found a pile of discarded shells, mostly oyster, but others too, including crab. As we looked out to sea, we noticed wind turbines and other interesting sights.

Finally we found our spot on the beach and settled down for lunch. Despite one of the coaches breaking down, a fabulous day for us all!
