UK Farm 2019 | Reception

On Tuesday, 19th November, Reception pupils took their first school trip to the UK Farm. The children were very excited to go on the bus journey and to see all the animals. When we arrived the lovely fresh smell of farm filled the children’s noses. The first stop on the tour was to feed the grown-up goats and the baby goats, (kids). The adults ate dried grass, which the children bravely fed to them. The baby goats drank milk from the bottle – they were very hungry and the children were very patient, making sure they held on tightly to the bottle and that the bottle was tilted at the correct angle. After feeding the goats, the children then went to see the goats being milked. They saw how the farmers looked after the goats, making sure they were washed properly before and after pumping. The children tried four different flavours of milk; original, chocolate, date and yoghurt. Their favourite was chocolate and yoghurt! They then went back on their tour buses to feed the ducks and chickens, who all received the food excitedly. After this, they went to visit the tall ostriches, deer and bunnies. The final stop on the tour was to the exotic fruit area, where they saw how the passion fruit grew above their heads. Then the children went to have their lunch before heading back to school. The staff at UK Farm were very impressed with the Reception pupil’s behaviour and their fantastic questions.
