Today Hatchmere went on a trip to Bunbury Mill. 

We had a fantastic trip to Bunbury Mill, we learnt how the water from the river Gowy was used to power the machines in the mill and how these machines turned wheat into flour. We also learnt how the millers and his children lived in the mill 900 years ago. In addition to this we used flour from the mill to make bread dough and took part in a pond dipping activity. It was a very busy day and we had lots of fun! 

The children were all fantastically behaved and represented our school brilliantly! We hope you've been able to bake your dough into a loaf of bread, if you've been successful at doing this please either tweet or email us some photos to see. 


Thank you to all our parent volunteers who came with us, we really appreciate you giving up your time to come with us. 

Yesterday the whole school took part in Outdoor Classroom Day, a nationwide effort to get children outside of the classroom, we took part in an outdoor phonics lesson and a mini beast hunt on the school field. The children worked in pairs and used bug catching equipment to find a range of mini beasts and then used an identifying sheet to help name them. 

We hope you have a lovely half term holiday, we look forward to hearing all about the adventures you get up to! We can't quite believe that when we return we'll be in our final half term of the year, this year really has flown by!
