The Reception age children in Val and Carol’s class have been riding each week at the RDA stables in New Yatt. We have all made friends with Kipper and Bramble, our lovely ponies, who are so patient and amenable. It’s just a short journey to get to the stables in the school minibus and we look out for sheep and lambs in the fields on the way. All the children are enjoying the riding sessions and making great progress. They practice sitting upright and stretching arms out upwards, behind and to the side. Some of the children are learning to say ‘Walk on’ and ‘Woah’. It’s a perfect summer learning experience!
