To develop community links and support the children's understanding of our local community we invited the wonderful team from Bow Police Stables to bring in two of their hugest police horses for families and staff to meet. This inspired awe and wonder as well as fostering curiosity and children were asking lots of questions "What do they eat?" and "Where do the horses live?" Some children were very confident to approach and feed the horses carrots and apples and others needed some support to touch and be close to the magnificent horses. The police officers chatted and gave lots of information about their jobs and the horses as well as answering questions from children. It was a meaningful and hands on experience for children, families and staff which was rich in learning. How they fitted out our small garden gate was incredible to witness!
