King's St Alban's

6 October

Reception enjoy ice-creams in October!

There was much excitement and anticipation for the pupils in our Reception class as they went on their first ever school trip to Churchfields Farm earlier this week.

Upon arrival at the farm, the children followed a magical fairy trail which took them to fairy school before transporting them to tooth fairy land. After the magical adventure, it was back down to earth with a tractor trailer ride around the farm. Children looked out for cows, goats, pigs and horses and were not disappointed by what they saw. The squeals of excitement from the whole class were wonderful to hear. Our inquisitive children were full of thoughtful questions throughout the ride, by which the teachers were extremely impressed.

Jumping off the tractor trailer, the children helped to carry pumpkins in wheelbarrows and sort them for farmer Will – a highlight of the trip!

King’s St Alban’s pupils felt very lucky to be able to experience some of Churchfields’ farm life and, in particular, to pay a special visit to the ice cream making factory – who wouldn’t? The group learnt how ice cream is made in the purpose built micro-dairy production room, which was full of all of the equipment needed to make delicious ice-creams and sorbets. Then, most importantly, the children raced back to the ice cream parlour to choose a flavour of award-winning ice cream … it was delicious and the children thought it most definitely worthy of the awards!

Our huge, heartfelt thanks go to Gillian and Will at Churchfields for giving the Reception class at King’s St Alban’s such a memorable and informative trip which has inspired the children further in their learning throughout this week at school.
