Class 1PP and 1T had a fantastic day at Jimmy’s Farm. The children spend the morning learning about the pigs on the working farm and investigating the different creatures in the reptile house. Some of the children even experienced a bird trying to make a nest out of their hair! After a picnic in the sunshine everyone got a chance to explore the woods and separated into teams to design and create some wonderful dens. Since returning to school the children have used their experiences to participate in lots of farm role play and they have also produced some fantastic written recounts of their day.
Here are some extracts from some of the children’s writing:
‘We saw a snake and a tortoise and a cheeky bird. The cheeky bird landed on my head!’ Jasmine.
‘We went to the reptile house I loved it so much!’ Ava
‘We did den building. We had a lovely day.’ Madeline
