Halswell Quarry Visits


We have been loving our trips to the Halswell Quarry over the last few weeks. The children have been exploring the quarry environment and have been able to link this with their learning about Tane, the God of the forest. Hopefully we will be able to fit in a few more trips to do some more exploring before the year ends.
