The first group of Foundation Stage children had a fantastic day at the Orchard – meeting Percy the Park Keeper and all his woodland friends was the undoubted highlight, but challenging themselves to make it up and down the mud slide (I’ll let you into a secret – they were better at doing this than the adults!); or to climb a ladder up a tree; making huge splashes in puddles; balancing across planks to cross a stream all came a close second……And that was only the morning.
During lunch, the sun came out, making the birds sing and the blossom looked even prettier. The afternoon was spent making potions, working together at the water channels and continuing to explore the Orchard. It culminated in gathering around the fire to make popcorn.
We hope the next group to go have just as much fun.
