K1 and K2 learn more about farm life

Our year one and two classes spent a sunny morning at a local farm, learning more about plants and animals.

The classmates and teachers made the short stroll to Gad’s Hill Farm where they were met by farm owners Mr and Mrs Warnett, and their two friendly, and very well behaved, dogs.

They found out more about the many different flowers and trees growing in and around the meadow, as part of this term’s science habitat topic.

Working in groups, the pupils used worksheets to identify species of flora and fauna, before enjoying a picnic lunch.

K2 Form Tutor Mr Patey said:  “The children always enjoy experiencing nature first-hand.

The farm visit has really boosted their classroom studies.  Their sensible listening and teamwork has resulted in some beautiful class work and they are quite the experts on flowers, trees and all kinds of things you find in a meadow.”
