Baa! Cluck! Quack!

There was great excitement in Reception this morning, as we had some very unusual visitors.

So it was on with our coats and wellies, and outside to meet… some farm animals.

Mooooo! Munch!

These included a calf called Joanna,  sheep called Thelma & Louise and some pygmy goats called Lizzie, Elsa & Elsie.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see, touch, hear and smell these friendly visitors.  Any initial nerves soon turned to smiles and laughter as they moved carefully around the animal pens.

Finally, they learnt some new facts about the farm visitors from their human friends, Marion and Ben.

“What is the name of a baby cow?”

After a final treat of stroking a rabbit, it was back inside to provision, after washing their hands.

Thank you for your visit.
