Grasshoppers' Class 2012 Leavers' Picnic

We were very lucky that almost all of the Grasshoppers' Class of 2012 (those starting school in September) were able to join us for a final farewell - there was standing room only  on the tractor and trailer to take us to our picnic site!






After Farmer Jake dropped us in the Park the children had great fun exploring the idyllic picnic site (especially the stream!)




Then we all (leavers, their parents and siblings and staff)  sat down to enjoy a lovely picnic!

Cards with the leavers' photos on had been hidden near the picnic site -  in trees, behind rocks, in rabbit holes! - a special treasure hunt took place... 

...before the presentation of leavers' gifts for everyone (after a little concern that one of the cards had been found and eaten by a sheep...falsealarm!!)





Then it was back on the tractor to return to nursery. The children just love the tractor and trailer rides - Harry and Elliott were in hysterics all the way back!!

Good Bye and Good Luck to all of those leaving Grasshoppers this Summer to start school in September, we will miss you but e know you are all ready for the challenges ahead!
