This week we have been lucky enough to have been out on our first all day school trip. There were some very excited children who got ready to go on the bus to visit Farmer Nick who had kindly helped us hatch some of his chicks in December. We got to see Mary the hen and our chicks that we headed to hatch as well as the herd of cows down on the farm and some horses.
We got to see Mary the hen and some of the chicks that had hatched out in our class. We also found some fresh eggs that the hens had laid that morning.
We also went pond dipping to see what we could find and identify. There were lots of tadpoles, damsel fly larvae, fresh water snails amongst other creatures and the children really enjoyed taking turns to dip with a net.
The children were extremely well behaved and Farmer Nick praised them all for their fantastic behaviour and enthusiasm for the day. There were many questions asked and ideas shared. The children listened to each other and were a credit to the school.
