Ferry Meadows and Nene Valley Railway
On Wednesday 10th October we visited Ferry Meadows and Nene Valley Railway. This was our first school trip! We had to get the coach to Ferry Meadows. Once we arrived we had a look at the lake and then we visited the woods. We thought we might see Goldilocks or the Three Bears! In the woods we talked about Autumn and the changes that we could see. We closed our eyes and listened carefully to sounds that we could hear. After this we collected leaves and sticks in a bag to take back to school. Once we left the woods we needed to walk to the train station so we wouldn't miss our train! We waited on the platform and was listening and looking for our train. When it arrived we climbed on board and sat in our seats. We had to show our tickets to the ticket collector! We were able to see lots of things out of the window including cows, sheep and a tractor just like in the story The Train Ride. We had our lunch on the train which we all enjoyed! When we arrived at the station we got off the train and had a look around and watched the Tornado, the train we had been on, leave the station! It was very noisy! It was a lovely day and everyone enjoyed our first school trip!
