The Year 3 children from St Anthony’s School came to Uncleby on a glorious day in May.
The children were very excited about their visit to Uncleby and were keen to get on with the day. After a welcome talk we all went for a walk down Manor Farm dale. We had enough time to walk right to the end to ‘Billy Goat Gruffs’ bridge.
After lunch the children completed a carousel of activities. They baked some biscuits in the kitchen using Farmer Mikes flour and porridge oats. They took it in turns to mill the wheat.
Sandra from Countryside Learning showed the boys and girls how to make a corn dolly. They found it quite tricky but they all managed to make one to take home.
Farmer Mike showed the children his tractor and the implement he had on the back. He said they asked lots of good questions.
A super day was had by all.
