Year 6 visit to Wide Horizons or ‘Let’s go back to the Stone Age!’

Today, Year 6 were challenged to see whether they could survive in the Stone Age (it would be touch and go, we have to conclude…). They spent the day fire-lighting, shelter-building, hunting and creating cave paintings from natural materials and a lot of fun was had by all – and a lot of learning.

Year 6, what did you most enjoy about the day out? What was the most interesting thing you discovered? Wheat else did you learn? Did anything surprise you? Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

Year 5 School Journey to Wick Court Farm

We made it! We’re having a great time and we’ve done so many amazing things. We’ve fed the pigs, fed the cows, fed the chickens, collected eggs, mucked out the geese pen, witnessed the birth of two lambs, did some gardening, landscaping for new beehives and cleaned up horse poop!

We’ve also learnt how to clean up after ourselves so when we get back home, we’ll be more than happy to show you our housekeeping skills!

We are waiting outside the boot-room ready for for hard days work on the farm!
In the barn, waiting to feed the animals.
Feeding the dragon composter!
Now you see why it’s called The Dragon!
Did you know that some chicken eggs are blue?
We were so lucky that we witnessed two lambs being born. We named them Edmund and Waller!
