Year 1 Trip to Kenyon Hall Farm 2023

Year 1 had a wonderful trip to Kenyon Hall Farm! We started with a tour of the farm where we learnt about the different plants that were growing, including pumpkins, wheat, tayberries and peas. We then met some friendly chickens and cows!

After that, we had a ride round on a tractor trailer before eating lunch and playing on the playground.

We ended the day picking strawberries which we got to take home and eat!
