Farm Visit - Owls Class
What a delightful time! Owl Class listened so well to an informative tour by welcoming Farmer
Jeremy of Church Farm. Who would have thought that digging holes would be so fun
while learning about micro-rganisms, biodiversity and ecosystems. The children
learnt about the different, rotating crops on the farm, what the produce is made
into after it leaves the farm and how the farm has needed to diversify over the
years. We were all amazed at how much technology is used on the farm as well
(e.g. cattle weighing troughs, fertilizer checking drones and beehives that detect
how far pollinators have traveled!)
"I didn't know that I would learn so much!"
said Felix at the end of the day.
Farmer Sue, gave the children some packs of flour
ready for our next bread making adventure!
