Ark Farm Visited Reception Pupils

Reception had the pleasure of welcoming Ark Farm back to Stanburn! The farm visit was a perfect way to end our learning on the 'Old MacDonald' nursery rhyme. The children were able to learn about the food the animals eat, where they live and discussed some similarities and differences between the animals. Later on in the day, the children were treated to a hands on session where the children felt confident enough to get closer to the animals and touch them. The children had a lot of fun meeting the donkey, goats, ducks, sheep, chickens and the friendliest dog you would ever meet! The children had a great time and we were very impressed with their attention to detail when making observations on the animals. A huge thank you to the staff members who helped with this visit and to Ark Farm themselves for a wonderful experience.
