We have been so lucky this week to all go to Perrygrove to make our own pear juice. At a time when OFSTED are criticising schools for only focusing on the core subjects, this week has been a perfect example of the benefits of being in a small village primary school. There aren’t many schools who, at short notice, organise a trip for the entire school to visit a local tourist attraction and take part in ‘From the Orchard to the Bottle’ experience – all free of charge too. A huge thank you to Perrygrove for inviting us, donating their time, bottles and labels. The children had a marvellous time, as you will be able to see from the videos below and hopefully from the feedback from your child(ren). The photographs in these videos were taken by the children and then Willow class created their own videos using iMovie. This was all done with minimum support from the adults! I am sure that you are as impressed as we are.
