It’s been a busy day on the farm today with the pupils visiting the bees. Dressed up in their overalls and head guards they were well protected as they went to farm the honey. https://t.co/w9M1SJ2Fcr

The children take turns cooking for each day - today the mission was Cornish pasties. How do you think they did? Do we have any budding Greggs pastry chefs in our midst? https://t.co/7V08gFeIfN
