Strawberry Picking 🍓

On Tuesday Year 1 had a wonderful day visiting Stonepitts farm in Sevenoaks.

When they arrived at the farm they had a talk from Farmer Jackie, telling them how strawberries are grown and tips and tricks for picking them.

They were very lucky with the weather and had an amazing day, picking and eating delicious strawberries 🍓

They then had a lovely picnic lunch and took advantage of the big fields to play in. Use the pictures below to tell someone at home about your day.

Thank you to all of the adults that were able to come and support on the trip!
