When a class all gain a 3rd Gold card they have a school reward of a day off timetable. 5/1 decided on a day out to Freshfield. Parents were invited along with any other members of the family including dogs!
The day started with catching the train from Hillside to Freshfield. Some parents travelled with us, others met us at Freshfield. We walked up to the squirrel reserve and were very lucky to see nearly 10 red squirrels scampering about the pinewoods.
Next the class enjoyed a walk through the woods with den building and a little tree climbing for the more adventurous!
Next stop was the beach - time for lunch - and then playing in the sand or a splash in the nearby water. The dogs were certainly having a good time, especially Milo who managed to finish off several packed lunches and Ebony who spent hours chasing the ball or frisbees.
On our way back to the train station we stopped off for a well deserved ice cream, before climbing back on board the train.
The children, dogs teachers and parents all had a fantastic day and the class were a real credit to Farnborough Road in the way they behaved.
