Tattenhall 2019.

Last week Year 2 children went to Tattenhall for a one night stay.  They all had a fantastic time and gained so much independence.  

On the way we stopped at The Cheshire Ice Cream Farm for an ice cream.  The weather stayed sunny for us and we managed to have a play too.  

During our stay at Tattenhall we did some pond dipping, art work, watched a DVD and slept for a whole 10 hours!!!!

Look and see how amazing it was!!!
