On Tuesday 10th May 2016 fifty nine children from Beverley Minster Primary School came to Uncleby. They spent a busy day completing a variety of activities.
After an introduction to the staff at Uncleby and a talk about the Country code the children split into the two classes.
One class walked with Farmer Mike down Manor Farm dale where they looked at the countryside around them and asked lots of really good questions.
Back at the Education Centre the other class had divided into three groups and they completed a carousel of activities. Sandra from Countryside Learning came and taught the children how to make corn dollies which they were able to take back to school.
Theresa (a volunteer from Countryside Learning) showed the children how to make paper seed pots. The children then planted a seed in the pot, and they took them back to school. I hope they all grow!
In the kitchen Mrs Wray made bread with the children. They used Farmer Mike’s flour. He grows the wheat and it is made into flour on his farm.
The day went so quickly and everyone had a great time
Mr Champion said – ” It was a wonderful trip. The best school trip ever!”
Mr Bray said – ” The day was thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults. We were made to feel very welcome. Many thanks”.
