Key Stage 1

Visit to Pennywell Farm

Class R, 1 and 2 visited Pennywell Farm outside Buckfastleigh for their Christmas Day Out.

We travelled together by coach. Once we were at the farm we had a chance to look at the animals before entering the magical star-lit barn to begin our Nativity. All of the children had the opportunity to dress up and take on a part in the Nativity Story as Shepherds (with real lambs), Kings (with a pony), Mary and Joseph (with a donkey), angels, stars and innkeepers. The children who did not want to dress up became the audience who sung wonderfully well as part of the narration.

After we finished our performance, every child went to Santa’s grotto to receive a present before walking to the cafe to enjoy a christmas biscuit and refreshments. We finished the day at the farm with lunch, play in the playground and another chance to see the animals before heading back to school.

What a great day with extremely well behaved children. Well done everyone!
