This year we have been able to offer our first residential opportunity for Year 3 and 4 children – at the Minstead Centre in the New Forest. With an environmental theme, children learnt all about looking after the environment, and caring for animals, including the centre’s own chickens!
They were also challenged to cut down on the amount of food wasted at meal times, as well as saving water with the eco-showers and rainwater toilets. Wellies were definitely needed, to make it through the very muddy fields, but it was well worth it, with everyone returning home happy but tired!
Many thanks to all the teachers involved in this great trip.
