Fantastic progress made towards our hen project today! A BIG thank you to all the volunteers, families, Catlin carpentry and building contractors!

On Thursday 11th October 2018 some members of our 'hen working party' visited a local school to find out about keeping hens safe within the school environment!  

Meet Helen our HFJS hen. She is even wearing her tie!

On Tuesday 25th September 2018 Mrs Wass met with a ‘Hen working party’ made up of parent volunteers and a ‘Hen pupil council’ to begin addressing the necessary actions in order for our hens to be safe, healthy and happy. 

September 2018 - Holt Farm’s Happy Hens!
On Friday 21st September we announced that we will be rescuing some hens from the British Hens Welfare Trust. Hens make fantastic friendly, endearing pets but are also a fantastic education tool. They promote team work, personal responsibility, personal safety, link with lots of curriculum supporting skills and can be part of our Eco School focus.  They really can enrich school life! https://www.bhwt.org.uk/
