School Trip Report—PP1 and PP2’s visit to the Dales Countryside Museum

“We went on a school trip on the mini bus.  When we got there we pretended to be detectives.  There were lots of old things and tools.  One table had the mummy one and the daddy one, the big brother one and one the little children used.  They were very old.

We tried the farmer’s lunch, it was ham, Wensleydale cheese and oatcakes and butter.

Then we went to explore the farms.”

Learning is such fun in Nursery!
