Visit to Nidderdale Show for Belmont Grosvenor pupils
Belmont Grosvenor School pupils spent an exciting day at Nidderdale Show.
Youngsters from Year 1 took time out of their classroom to enjoy a traditional agricultural show as part of their topic on the differences between town and country living.
Headmistress Mrs Sophia Ashworth Jones and Year 1 teacher Mrs Nicola Shillam took the children around the annual ‘Pateley’ show.
As well as seeing, and learning about, the livestock including cattle, sheep, pigs and horses, the children enjoyed meeting local craftsmen and women, including wood turners and hearing about their work in the countryside.
There was also plenty of time for drinks and snacks – including a well-earned ice cream break!
Said Mrs Ashworth Jones: “What a wonderful way to spend the day! We learned such a lot from the exhibitors and young farmers who delighted in showing us their animals and produce.”
“They were impressed by the children’s knowledge and polite and gentle conduct around the show. All of the children chose a favourite animal, and all of them chose a different one! I really enjoyed the rare ducks who seemed to be quacking their approval of our pupils as we walked past!” she added.
