It has been a rather exciting week, watching the chicks grow and develop each day. The children have named the chicks. The largest, mixed breed chickens are Penguin and Fluffy. The bantams are Lemon, Chip, Coconut and Smoky. Which is your favourite chick, year 2?
Year 2 tell me that they had the best time ever at Middle Farm yesterday! When we arrived, Robin met us and took us to return our chicks to their brothers and sisters. After a quick pit stop (it’s incredible how frequently six and seven year old children need to eat), we had a guided tour of the farm, including small animal handling and feeding the lambs. After lunch, the children had some time to play in the playgrounds and the hay barn before it was time to watch the cows being milked. It was absolutely fascinating to hear the farmers talk all about the animals and how to care for them, to see the day to day running of a working farm and hear about the produce created at Middle Farm. I was very proud of our impeccably well-behaved class, as always. Thanks for a lovely day out Year 2!
