Broomfield Park trip:

Thankfully, the sun came out for trip to Broomfield Park! We had a fantastic time exploring the different areas and learnt lots of new things. We were able to:

-have a tour of the orchard

-saw some pond dipping

-saw real life beehives

-played on the equipment

It was a jam packed day but we loved it! Thank you to the ‘Friends of Broomfield Park’ for showing us around 🙂

The children made delicious cookies with raisins, sprinkles and golden decorations. We had so much fun making them for our cookie sale and have managed to raise £63 for ‘Friends of Broomfield Park’! Thank you to everyone who bought a cookie- they were all gone in just 10 minutes!
