We all know kids learn best when they are seeing and doing and not just listening in the classroom. Coombe Mill allows children the chance to learn so much from science to geography. The daily animal feed run is always packed with inquisative children asking farmer Nick one question after another as they help him on his morning chores.
Practical learning on holiday can also be supported by our education pages which cover many of the national curriculum topics
We were thrilled to hear that one of our young guests had chosen the River Camel for his school project. The river is a beautiful feature of Coombe Mill, enjoyed by our guests for fishing and play. It clearly made an impression on William. We are delighted he has brought his project back with him on holiday to show us and agreed to share it here.

I hope this is the first of many school projects we will be able to show case here on the blog. A huge thank you to William for sharing his good work. If anyone else has completed the education sheets, a Coombe Mill dairy or similar project to William and would be happy to share them please do let us know.
