On Thursday 11th July 2019, Year 2 children were fortunate enough to visit working fruit farm ‘Tuesley Farm’ as part of their learning about where food comes from. The day started with being shown how the fruit is stored once picked and then how its packed and distributed to supermarkets. After that, we boarded trailers which took us to the polytunnels where the strawberries, raspberries and blueberries are grown. We were shown how each of them are to be picked and were able to fill up lots of punnets to take and enjoy at home. At lunchtime we walked into the shaded woods where we sat down and enjoyed a well-earned rest. The children were treated to homemade cakes and a pad and crayons to draw with. Before the end of the day we were taken to a big adventure playground which had a zip wire, swings, slides and a football pitch. It was the best school trip ever!
