IT’S not one of the longest school trips they will ever take along their academic path - but it is a very popular one nevertheless.

Children from Reignhead Primary School in Beighton regularly make their way down to Beighton Orchard with their teachers

It is just a short stroll down from the school on Platts Drive to the orchard, off Robin Lane.

Once they arrive they learn about all sorts of things apple and nature related.

And on this occasion the children’s visit coincided with that of some very important people.

This group of Y3 pupils were there at the same time as the team of judges for the Yorkshire in Bloom 2012 competition.

They were there to assess the old orchard in the Community Award category of the annual competition.

The judges were impressed to hear that Reignhead is just one of the local schools that frequently use Beighton Orchard for environmental events and lessons.
