YEAR 3 King’s Ely Junior pupils visited The Farmland Museum and Denny Abbey and Stowbridge Farm.

The trip on June 7th enabled the students to make direct comparisons between the past and present, exploring how land use and farming practices have changed over the years. The day ended at Stretham Old Engine, where the children were able to see first hand the mechanism behind the drainage of the Fens.

Year 3 teacher Kirsty Chenery said: “A great day was had by all and hopefully the children picked up some tips for growing and harvesting their own vegetables along the way! While the day gave the children the opportunity to stretch their legs in the great outdoors, there was no sign of Boggis, Bunce or Bean on their travels.”
