Reception’s Trip to Plumpton College

Tuesday was an exciting day for Reception as they visited Plumpton College Farm. They joined Chiddingly on the coach and travelled to the farm spotting plenty of interesting sights on the way. When they arrived they were met by Deborah who showed them into the education centre and then showed them around the farm. Whilst there, the children were looking at different animals as part of their topic on new life and were lucky enough to see some lambs being born! The children then were given the opportunity to hold a 1 day old lamb and later created their own craft lamb using real sheep wool! It was a fantastic day and the children learnt lots about the names of mother and father animals and how long it takes for animals to grow and develop.
