One of the things we pride ourselves on here at Crabtree Farm is the fantastic residential visits our pupils get to experience each year.
This year we have put on more residential visits than ever before and new to our residential program was Year Three's visit to Rand Farm Park in Lincoln.
During an over night stay the children became mini farmers and learnt about life on a working farm. There was work to be done and the children were well up for the farming challenges that had been set for them.
Cows had to be milked, pigs had to be cleaned out, animals had to be fed and butter had to be made. There was also time for some fun which included a tractor ride around the farm and visiting the adventure playground.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to the animals and staff at Rand Farm Park who made us feel very welcome during our stay and it's definitely something we hope to do again in the future.
Dr Seuss once said 'The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.' This is something we agree with here at Crabtree Farm Primary and we are sure you share our belief that reading is a key part of your children's education.

The day’s focus was Opportunity Notts along with letting all the schools in Nottigham City know that there is a very unique exhibition at Wollaton Hall over the summer months.
Today, we got to make some dino-sock puppets and performed a short puppet show to persuade people to get up and be more active. We also met Hunter who was a Sin Raptor (from China).
A little later on, we went to Nottingham Castle to look at unusual natural things and to look closely in microscopes at some of the things we found. We listened to natural and man-made noises and learned about some of the landmarks around Nottingham that we could see.
In the afternoon, we had the chance to share our ideas on a greener Nottingham to Councillor Sam Webster who works for the Nottingham City Council. He is in charge of Business Development and Education for the City and was interested to find out about some of our ideas: trees, open spaces and making some built up areas more environmentally friendly.
Over the last couple of months, children from across the school have worked hard to contribute towards a time capsule that will be planted on a local housing development. There were some absolutely fantastic entries, and some children added in other items such as photographs and coins.
On Wednesday 8th June, twelve children attended an event at the development to commemorate the time capsule. We were able to see and hold the time capsule and learned about the other contributions that would be inside it along with our own work.
