Mrs Allmark and Miss Hinton 2019-2020

Autumn term 

We are “orchardists” in Mantle - known throughout this Kingdom and beyond for our amazing apples. In Glorious Orchard, we are preparing for apple day although there are a few problems to sort out! We are also interested in using the land in Slumber Orchard to plant more trees. However, there seems to be a hidden story there...

Along the way, we are learning lots of science, art, PSHE and RE. 

We visited a real orchard at Clive’s Fruit Farm
