Willows Class Trip- Oxford

On Friday, Willow class headed into Oxford for a class trip. After dropping the Maples off at the Ashmolean, we headed to Oxford City Farm for the first part of our adventure.

Oxford City Farm is a community led charity that provides opportunities for the local community to engage with farming and food production. They have land in East Oxford where they grow fruit and vegetables, and keep chickens, goats, sheep and bees. They were so welcoming to our group and showed us round. The children were able to feed the goats, investigate the pond, and look at all the food they’re growing. This linked brilliant with our current DT project ‘Chop, Slice, Mash’.

We also lucked out as another charity, Parasol Project, were there doing a pop up stall making cheese toasties and offered our class some free samples as ‘market research’!

After exploring the farm, we walked down the road to Florence Park where we ate our lunch and had a great time in the playground. The children represented our school brilliantly throughout; being kind and respectful to everyone we came across- we were so proud of them.

We then walked back to the bus stop just in time to be picked up by the Maples on the coach!
