Thursday’s Visit to the Farm

Thursday’s Visit to the Farm

When we arrived at the farm our first stop was the chick barn. We all had the chance to hold one of the chicks. We had to make sure that we were very gentle and quiet. The chicks were soft and fluffy.

After that we walked over to see the rabbits and the guinea pigs.

   

Lynn from the farm took us over to meet more of her farm yard friends- the llamas, pigs and the highland cows. Some of us had to feed the llamas by pouring food down the shoot.

We then went to meet some of the newest arrivals to the farm. First we had the chance to say hello and feed the pygmy goats and their kids. We then met some of the lambs and the sheep who were about to have their babies very soon!

In the next barn we went to see some of the bigger pigs and the alpacas.

 

We were very excited when we all had the chance to bottle feed the lambs. They were only 2 weeks old! We had to make sure that we held the bottle up so that the air didn’t get in

In the afternoon we had the chance to see wallabies, chickens, the giant turkey and Percy the peacock. We finished the day with a fantastic tractor ride around the very muddy farm.

Sadly, it was time to go home. We all had a wonderful day and the children were a credit to our school.

How tall are you?

How tall are you?

This week we have talked about how things are different sizes. We started by looking at the different bricks in the construction area and noticed that some were long and some were short. We used hand prints to measure how long the different bricks were.

We wondered if we were all different sizes too. We worked in pairs to measure each other using hand prints. We had to count up the hands to see how tall we are. Miss Wilson is 18 hands tall but most of us are just 9 hands tall! We had lots of fun working with our partners!

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

This week we have talked about Mother’s Day.

During Collective Worship we went around the circle and told each other why our Mummies are special and why we love them.

We finished by saying thank you to God for our Mummies and for everything they do for us.

 

 

We have enjoyed making our Mother’s day cards using hand and finger painting. We used the letters that we have learnt over the past few weeks to write Mam in our cards. We hope you like them!

 

Fairtrade Friday!

On Friday we celebrated the end of ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’. We all came to school wearing Fairtrade colours.

We started the day by talking about what Fairtrade means. Miss Wilson explained that the person who grows the banana gets £1.00 as does the person who picks the bananas and the person who drives the bananas to our big shops. But the shop keeper gets £5.00 for selling the bananas in his big shop. We decided that it wasn’t fair! We said that if we give them all £2.00 it would be fair because they would all have the same! Miss Wilson explained that Fairtrade makes sure that everyone is given a fair amount of money for the job that they do so they can buy the things that they need like food and clothes.

We enjoyed making Fairtrade banana smoothies in small groups. We searched for the Fairtrade symbol on the bag of bananas and we found it really quickly! We all had fun chopping and blending the bananas into a delicious smoothie! It smelt and tasted delicious.

We had fun setting up our own Fairtrade Tuckshop and we all had the chance to go and buy a tasty treat for snack time! At snack time we all had fun searching for the Fairtrade symbol on our snack bar.

We ended the day with our Fairtarde swap. We all brought in a Fairtrade item and they were adde to our class raffle. At the end of the day we each picked a raffle ticket and we had to find our prize!

Next time you’re shopping why not see what Fairtrade things you can find?
