It’s that time of year where new life is arriving on the farm. We thought we would immerse the children in learning all about what happens on a farm.
We learnt that not only farmers look after animals but they also grow a lot of the food we eat every day. Lots of the children knew farmers grew corn and some even knew their Weetabix were made from cereals grown by the farmers.
The children were fascinated to learn that the baby offspring of animals might have a different name, for example, a Goats baby is called a kid!
In PE we have been practising our hand-eye coordination skills with a selection of games. Throwing and catching bean bags with our partners was a great success.
In Forest School on Wednesday afternoon, we took a trip to the pond in search of baby ducklings and had a wonderful picnic in the park.
We also celebrated a birthday this week out on a picnic!
To Finish the week we took a trip to Vauxhall City Farm, to bring the theme alive. We had a wonderful time. The children got to feed a selection of farm animals as well as have an interactive session with the animal keepers. Stroking ‘Popcorn’ the rabbit was a huge success.
