In preparation for our outing this week, we have enjoyed learning about ‘Farms’ and ‘Farm Animals’. We loved playing in our farm themed tuff spots, especially building walls to separate the fields with Weetabix walls! The highlight of our week naturally was visiting Bockett’s farm. It was lovely to take the children on a school trip to such a wonderful working farm environment. The children took part in animal handling, where they were allowed to get up close to a variety of smaller rabbits and guinea pigs.  We enjoyed feeding the cows,  goats and sheep in the big barn. Then Farmer Ashleigh took us for a ride around the farm on their tractor and trailer which was the greatest of fun. The children returned to the coach a little weary but delighting in their farm experiences.

Next week is our last week in Reception class, so we will be looking back at our learning and talking about our exciting transition into Year 1.
