Court Farm Class Trip - Tuesday 17th October
We have had the most wonderful day at Court Farm. In school the children have shown a keen interest in animals and with our topic 'Autumn' we have been learning about Harvest time and what that means. So we thought it would be a great experience to visit a farm and see for ourselves at first hand what farming was all about. Farmer Ed showed us around the farm, introducing us to all of the animals - we even got too heard the goats out to their field, feed the noisy piglets some apples, give the calves some had and feed the lambs their milk! By looking at the goats feed we found out about what crops had been harvested to make it. Fun times were had by all when we weighed a lamb and compared its weight of 24 kilos against our individual weight (we had to climb into the special animal scales cage to do this - see the photos below!) We had to estimate whether we would be heavier or lighter. Some of us weighed around 15 kilos and some of us up to 22 kilos - so we were all lighter than the lamb (adults not included!).
In the afternoon we went on an exciting tractor ride where we saw the bull, cows and calves and a few sheep in the field and had some play time at the different play areas.
WE HAD SO MUCH FUN and learnt a huge amount too.
Welcome to the new crocodiles at Woolavington Primary School. The first week has been wonderful, watching the children settling in and making new friends. They are already nice and settled, which has shown that the transition has worked well! We have begun our topic about Autumn and have shared what we already know and what we would like to find out about. The children seem very keen on anything to do with farms, which ties in nicely with learning about Harvest time. So we are know in the midst of booking a class trip to a working farm to find out more!
