Horner and Monmouth Countryside Day

Horner and Monmouth Countryside Day


Horner and Monmouth classes enjoyed a fabulous day out in the beautiful countryside near Chard on 22nd May.

The day gave the children a chance to experience, learn about and appreciate all that the countryside on our back doorstep has to offer – including clambering over old and new tractors, visiting the belfry in Wambrook Church, wild flower walks, hunting for animal tracks, feeding lambs, hunting for bugs in the mill stream and  watching the farrier at work.  All the children were able to experience some activities they had never tried before, and one of the highlights of the day was feeding 25 hungry orphan lambs. At the end of the day everyone was pretty tired, but just had enough energy left for duck races in the stream and ice creams courtesy of the Cotley Inn.

Thanks go to Mrs Perry, who helped to organise the whole day for us, and to Mrs Ally Eames, Mr Tom Eames, Mr Fred Eames, Mr Dennis Rockett, Mr David Olive and Mr Malcolm Cowan who helped us throughout the day.
