A Visit to City Farm

Publisher: Firetree Books

The pupils of Rainbow Class eagerly set off on their school trip to City Farm, descending into the clatter of the underground station, before emerging into the luscious green of the farm, nestled among the bustling London streets. The children have a fun-filled day, meeting the animals and eating their packed lunches, before heading back to school.

This joyful tale of everyday life perfectly captures the excitement of a school outing. The narrative is interspersed with sections of rhyming verse, and vibrant watercolour illustrations bring the tale vividly to life. Written in collaboration with Year 5 pupils from a London primary school, this inclusive book reflects the cultural diversity found in British society today. A lovely book to share with young children, particularly if they are embarking on their own school trip.
