The Dog's Trust
17 October 2019

As part of our topic ‘All Creatures Great and Small’, Class 1 have been visited by The Donkey Sanctuary, Axhayes Cat Adoption Centre and today we had a visit from The Dogs Trust. The children learnt all about how to behave around dogs and how to keep them happy and healthy. We were able to look at a microchip to see how small it was and learnt how they can help get a dog back home if they are lost.

We met Midnight the toy dog and were able to stroke him using the palm of our hand as we had been taught.

Farmwise 2019
16 October 2019

What a fantastic time Classes 2 and 3 had at the Farmwise event! There was so much to see and do including; bread making, smoothie making by pedal power, spinning wool, looking at an ultra – sound scan of a ewe in lamb and even examining an owl’s poo for skeletons!

The pupils learned such a lot about where food originates from and how it is made.

Thank you to our parent helpers who supported this invaluable trip.
