Grantchester Fair

Today, Anne, Colin, Hazel and Roman took a day trip to Grantchester Fair.We walked by the river, where cows were happily grazing.

We saw some tractors.

We saw some sheeps being sheared.

And a tiny little steam engine.

There was a falconry display.

A traditional Punch & Judy show.

We also saw a medieval sword fighting reenactment.

Then we came across a second world war army truck display.

Which showed us typical items a soldier would have used in that time.

Then we walked back past the river and went home.

It's been a long day!
