Warleigh Lodge Farm Trip
This month our pre-school school leavers had a fantastic trip to Warleigh Lodge farm.
The children all had a fantastic day. They were able to feed animals such as the lambs, cows and goats! They saw the Peter Rabbit tree which they all climbed through, not to mention the amazing tractor ride through the fields!
The sun shone down on us all day and we took home some extremely happy children.
Thank you to all the members of staff who helped and all the parents who re-arranged their child's day so that they could attend!
Also, a huge thank you to Warleigh Lodge Farm for a lovely day and such a warm welcome as per usual.
Please have a look through the photographs above. We also have lots more pictures on our 'Atworth photo's' page.
