A day out at Knightshayes

Class 1 and Pre-school had a lovely day out at Knightshayes today.  In the morning we all set off for an adventure in the woods together.  The children loved hunting for bugs and plants and trying to name them.  We found some dens that we enjoyed playing in, we said hello to the sheep and finally got back to the house to find some shade and eat our lunch!  I think we were all glad of a rest!

In the afternoon Reception and Year 1 went off to do a ‘Growing Plants’ workshop led by the National Trust; we got to taste some different vegetables grown in the kitchen gardens, we learnt about the parts of a plant and what they need to grow, we even made our own seed heads that each child was able to take home with them to grow.

The Pre-school children, together with their parents, Kath and Cassie then went off to explore the gardens and also the house to escape the sudden downpour!  It was really lovely to have so many parents and children come along with us and we really hope you enjoyed the day every bit as much as we did, thank you for coming.

We had lots and lots of comments from  members of the public and from National Trust staff about how well behaved the children were, they made us all very proud, well done everyone!  I must also say a massive, massive thank you to the National Trust staff who went above and beyond what was expected of them to help us out today, many, many thanks to you from all of us.

I also must take this opportunity to say a very heartfelt thank you to my team, Miss Alderman, Mrs Howes, Kath, Cassie and of course the wonderful Mrs Honey.  Today proved what an excellent team we are and how well we work together, you are all amazing and it is a privilege to work with you, thank you.  A proud day for Early Years at Bishops Nympton  Primary School.
