Visit to Mount Pleasant Farm
Reception went on a trip to visit Mount Pleasant Farm.
We had a very enjoyable day finding out about all of the animals,how to look after them and what the animals produce.
First, we learnt how to look after the chickens. We fed them and gave them water. We collected their eggs.
Next, we fed the sheep and lambs. We felt their woolly coats.
Then we went to see Pinky and Perky pigs. We watched them eat carrots, apples and cabbage.
Finally, we went into the cow shed. We saw calves and cows. We saw a calf being born.Also the children enjoyed meeting Tinkerbell the farm dog.
'The chickens enjoyed pecking'
'Look at me feeding the sheep!'
'I was brave stroking the cow'
'We had a brilliant time and what an experience!'
PSED/CL/UW: Children know about similarities and differences in relation to living things. They talk about how environments might vary from one another. They make observations of animals and explain why some things occur, and talk about changes. They learned farm related topic vocabulary.
