Class Assembly

This afternoon the Hedgehogs Reception class performed in a fantastic assembly! Our theme during worship this half-term has been perseverance. The children started the assembly by sharing their own experiences of when they have persevered. They then told the story of The Enormous Turnip. All the children tried so hard and showed great confidence as they acted out the story. We hope all the parents enjoyed the assembly as much as us. Thanks for watching!

Before lunch the children enjoyed a short trip on a tractor to feed the donkeys. While on the tractor we saw cows, sheep, goats, horses and chickens.

Before leaving we watched and learnt all about how to milk a cow and how the milk ends up in the supermarkets.
