Well what an amazing day we've had!  We started this years celebration with whole school Yoga on the field with Lucy from Tayana Yoga.  The children were so focused and loved holding some paired stretches too.  We finished the yoga session with some mindful meditation, clearing our minds ready for the day.  The children then spent the morning in a variety of outdoor session from gardening, to litter picking, to mud art and even a giant game of hide and seek in the long grass!  We enjoyed our Royal Wedding themed lunch on the field in the sunshine then prepared for our exciting family party.  Year 2 made crown shape biscuits and naturally flavoured water and we set the field with some traditional lawn games (think boules, cricket and snakes and ladders!).  We were then joined by parents, grandparents and siblings and enjoyed a wonderful garden party on the field.  Outdoor learning is such an important part of our curriculum and is something we all feel very passionately about.  There are a lot of photos but they are truly wonderful and capture the pure joy on the kids faces throughout the day.
