Despite the cold weather, both Class 1’s went on a visit to Canon Hall Farm today as part of their topic.  When we arrived we met some meerkats.

Then we went and had a look at the Farrowing barns where we saw new born piglets with their Mums, each sow can have up to 14 piglets.  We then went into another barn where piglets that were older were, they were very sleepy!!!  We then saw some rare breeds including Ted who is a new born Highland cow.

Then it was time for lunch but we got to stroke peanuts the guinea pig first . 

After lunch we went on a tractor ride and then we were so lucky to see a lamb being born.

 

 

Then it was time for the sheep race and home on the coach.  It was a lovely day and the children were exceptional.
