What an exciting week!

What a week! On Wednesday we went on our trip to Hall Hill Farm which was amazing. All the children did us very proud! First of all we went on a big double decker bus which was an adventure in itself for some of the children. When we arrived at the farm we were taken to a barn to leave our bags and be introduced to our guides. Many of the children were able to answer questions about the animals and show the guides what we had been learning in Nursery, which was very impressive. Then we all went to feed the bigger animals around the farm. We fed sheep, goats and alpacas- staff were very impressed with how many children got involved in feeding these animals. After that it was time for the tractor ride “This is great, it's very bumpy” said Finlay. Then it was lunchtime so we went back to the barn to eat our packed lunches (some of the children are very good eaters).

What an exciting week!What an exciting week!

After lunch we visited the smaller animals and had the opportunity to pet and cuddle some rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks. Some of these animals were so relaxed they fell asleep on some of the children's knees. Then we went to feed a lamb with a bottle before heading back to the barn for our treat of a mini milk ice lolly then back to the bus to return to Nursery. Many of the children had a little nap on the way home as it was such a fun but tiring day!

What an exciting week!What an exciting week!

We have also had a surprise in Nursery this week as our eggs have hatched and we now have 5 lovely yellow and black little chicks. The children were very excited when they noticed them “They are very little and cute” said Joey. “They are noisy” said Fern.

What an exciting week!What an exciting week!

This week's little rays of sunshine are Jack Todd for having no tears at the farm and being a very brave boy. Finlay Craggs for participating in every aspect of the farm and listening very carefully to instructions. Paul-Mason Stewart for being so engaged on our farm trip- he had brilliant listening and was very sensible all day. Lilly Reed for being very sensible at the farm and showing staff how independent she is and finally Cameron Evans for answering lots of questions about the animals at the farm and being very kind and caring towards them. Well done to all of these children.
