Class 1R visit Wimpole Farm

On Wednesday 8th October Class 1R visited Wimpole Farm with Class R.  We set off in our waterproof coats and wellies, only to find the sun shining when we arrived!

After a quick drink and snack we headed into the farm to look at the sheep, cows, horses, geese and goats.  We watched the pigs being fed (which was incredibly noisy!) and were lucky enough to feed some of the piglets ourselves.  Our favourite animal was a shire horse called Jacob.  We were allowed to stroke him gently on the nose.

We enjoyed our lunch outside and then walked around the gardens.  We loved all the pretty flowers in the walled garden and even spotted Humpty Dumpty sitting on the wall.

After that, it was time for a talk about harvesting.  We learnt how it used to be done in the past and how the machines do a lot of the work today.  We had a go at grinding wheat into flour which was very hard work.

We just had time to visit the shop to spend our money before heading back to school on the coach.  It was a tiring day (there was some snoring on the coach on the way home!) but we all had a thoroughly good time.
