Garlic Farm Visit
Europe class were extremely lucky enough to experience a working farm at the Garlic Farm in Newchurch. They has a tour of the farm : looking at the animals and the garlic growing field. Next, they went into the education centre to complete a quiz. The children worked together in pairs to find the answers to some very tricky questions.
Finally all the children were able to plant a clove of garlic and bring it back to class ready to plant in the class garden.

||For the last 2 weeks, 12 children in America Class have had an opportunity to spend a morning outside the classroom. Working with Hampshire and Isle of Wight Trust, they have spent time at Osborne House, taking part in activities such as den building, green wood craft and campfire cooking.
On the first session, children learnt about spending time in the forest, identifying trips and hazards as well as working with wood to create a pendant made out of a fallen branch. Children had to cut the branch into the correct shape, then use a hand-made drill to create the hole. Children had a fantastic time and really looked forward to the second session.
The second session included helping to make a camp fire, including collecting wood, using spark sticks to light the fire and then cooking home made bread on their toasting sticks. Children again had opportunities to play and explore.
All in all, the children had a wonderful and energetic time at the forest. They all agreed that it was much more fun than sitting in front of a computer screen!!!
