Year 5 visited a working farm in Moreton-on Marsh on June 12th, where we learnt about farm work, and life in a rural location. We visited the Rollright Stones and found out about legends associated with the stones, as well as the history of the site. The trip was organised by 'The Cotswold Wardens' - an organisation that seeks to share the Cotswolds with children who otherwise may not get to visit.
On April 23rd (Sycamore) and April 30th (Elder) Year 5 enjoyed a second 'Into University' experience. We spent the day at a centre in Blackbird Leys, finding out what Universities offer students.
