To consolidate their topic about Pets this term Year 1 went on a visit to Bocketts Farm. Although it was very hot the children all coped so well and enjoyed exploring with the help of our tour guides. First of all we visited the mud kitchen area, where lots of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers were growing. We then got to go on a bumpy tractor ride to see the larger pens further afield. The children demonstrated their tremendous listening skills and were polite and considerate to all the other visitors at the farm. They got to feed the goats and sheep and they witnessed a Shetland pony and some horses being hosed down, to keep them cool in the heat. They also got to stroke a rabbit, guinea pigs and a chicken! Of course, lunch time and free play in the park area was the icing on the cake. What a great trip to see us nearing the end of a fantastic year in Year 1.
