We went to Airfield farm on our school tour. We saw lots of animals including: lambs, donkeys, calves, cows, pigs, sheep and chickens. We also went on a bug hunt and we caught lots of mini beasts including 3 frogs! We planted some beans and we saw lots of vegetables growing in the garden. We loved travelling on the bus and eating our lunch altogether. We especially loved meeting billy the goat and learning the chinese chickens, they lay blue eggs! We saw a huge sheep called 'Dorset Sheep' they had big horns. We loved the Jersey cows and we saw where they are milked - their milk is particularly creamy! We learned so much, we were exhausted afterwards and so was Ms Finnegan!
We have been busy plating spinach, carrots, peas, nasturtiums, sweet peas, strawberries and potatoes! We have also had great fun using clay to create our own pinch pots. We worked with for them to Ms O'Sullivan's class to paint them as well. Our caterpillars have arrived! We have watched them grown from a tiny caterpillar into a bigger one. they then climbed up to the lid of their jars and transformed into chrysalides. We are waiting patiently turn into butterflies! We love working with the school ipads. We have been practicing our reading using an app on the ipads and have been doing great teamwork!
