Pupils in the Nursery visited Stockley Farm Park in Northwich for a ‘hands-on’ countryside experience and to find out more about life on a farm.
The boys and girls were able to see and touch an array of animals such as rabbits, chicks, goats and lambs as they visited pets’ corner and the animal shed. They also got the opportunity to bottle-feed the lambs and kids.
The pupils were then taken on a tractor ride around the site before visiting the stable to look at equipment for horses such as saddles, stirrups, bridles, riding hats and horse shoes.
At lunchtime everyone enjoyed a picnic outside the Willow Barn Tearoom and once they had finished eating they headed to ‘the tunnel’ where they watered plants and played a number of horticultural related games.
The boys and girls then honed their sleuthing skills by going on a bug hunt in the fields armed with magnifying glasses before having heaps of fun in the playground as they played on the swings, slides, seesaws and in the sandpit.
Talking about the trip Zayd Gurjee said: “My favourite bit was when we went on the tractor” whilst Krish Vaish enjoyed “seeing the cows”. Elijah Cope had a great time at the stables and had fun putting on the riding hat.
James Woodsmith enjoyed “feeding the sheep” whilst Joshua Chamberlain “loved the sandpit”.
