Year One had a wonderful 'land' to their Fur, scales and slime topic when they visited Boydell's Dairy Farm in Wethersfield.
The sun shone brightly as we became farmers for the day, learning about milking the cow (and some adults and children were brave enough to have a go!), feeding the calves, lambs and poultry and enjoying close encounters of the feathery, woolly, bristly and hairy kind. We were even lucky enough to meet a cria (baby alpaca) who was just days old, and very sweet he was too.
We had our packed lunches before getting the chance to paddle in a stream and clamber on trees and a 'troll bridge'. As is becoming something of a Katherine Semar Infant School tradition, a tiny goat kid adopted us and followed us about all day.
Upon leaving, staff members heard the children talking about what a wonderful day it had been. "This has been the best day EVER!" exclaimed Jan.
As ever, thanks to Farmers Roy and Kylie and their team for a great educational day out.
