What a wonderful day was had by all!
The children started the day by thinking about what animals need to stay healthy. We then went with our guide Danielle, to the large indoor animal house, where we saw and fed the shire horses, donkeys, goats, alpacas, rabbits and pigs. Some of us held the guinea pigs!
Next, we visited the reindeer and goats. Did you know that a male reindeer loses it’s antlers before Christmas every year and a female after Christmas? They grow back exactly the same shape but every year they get bigger! That must make the reindeers belonging to Father Christmas all female!!
Then it was show time!
Then we learnt about how cows are milked and what everyday foods start out as milk. We also had a go at milking.
There was just enough time before lunch to go on a tractor ride.
After lunch, we let off some energy in the Peter Rabbit Adventure Playground, before watching the sheep race.
An early night needed for everyone I think!
Enjoy your evening,
The Early Years Team
