A day out learning about Windsor Great Park and its farm was enjoyed by pupils from St Mary’s Catholic Primary School.
At the open day of the park, the pupils from the Cookham Road school were able to explore the farm and see piglets, lambs and chicks, as well as learn about how water is recycled on site.
This is the second time the school has been to the open day which runs every two years, but is the first time the year groups three and four visited.
Class teacher Gill Hague said: “It was a lovely atmosphere, all the children enjoyed it and came back telling stories from the day.”
A special treat was put on by the staff at Windsor Great Park with a visit from a group of Siberian Huskies.
These are not used as working dogs at the park but the children learned how they could be used to help as working dogs in other parts of the world.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
