On Sunday 10th June, we were delighted to welcome over 400 visitors to our school as part of Open Farm Sunday.
Open Farm Sunday, managed by LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), provides an opportunity for farms across the UK to open their gates and welcome people onto their farm for one Sunday each year. Since the first Open Farm Sunday in 2006, over 1000 farms across the UK have supported this national initiative.
The whole day was absolutely fantastic! Staff, pupils and Friends of Joseph Norton enjoyed hosting the event and visitors, including members of the local community and MP Paula Sherriff, were able to meet and feed the animals, enjoy home cooked food and compete on our very own sheep rodeo :)
We hope you enjoy the video we made at the start of the event and some of the photos we took during the day.
