Sacrewell Visit

 The children had been counting down the weeks and the day had finally arrived, the Reception children were going to the heritage farm attraction Sacrewell Farm.  A beautiful spring morning greeted us as we arrived at the farm.  The children were full of excitement about their first school visit.  We could hear the bleats of lambs and loved watching them skip across the fields.  The lamb show was fantastic, we learnt so many facts and even got to stroke them.

After looking at the large farm animals the children enjoyed seeing the pets in the Animal Village, where there were rabbits, guinea pigs and even some baby ducklings.  A visit to the farm wouldn’t be complete without the bumpy tractor ride with the children sitting proudly up on the trailer as we explored the farm, finding out information about the crops which were being grown.  We even managed to squeeze in some time to go inside the mill and had fun navigating our way around the maze.

We had a super time on our visit to the farm and once we returned to school we made a large scale map of the farm and 3d farm animals and have also written excellent recounts.  A huge thanks to Sacrewell Farm, for making the children’s visit so memorable.
