Reception really enjoyed our visit to Rays Farm; here we continued our learning about animals and the farm. During the day we had chance to visit the Fairy tale Forest, where we were able to see the Crooked Man and his house, Humpty Dumpty and lots of wild garlic growing amongst the trees. Many children thought it smelt of garlic bread! We were able to see and stroke many farm animals, including sheep, donkeys, goats and horses! We also got to see lots of unusual animals, such as alpacas, reindeer, owls and a llama called Carlos! We saw many young farm animals too, were able to spot baby kids, chicks and lambs. Our teachers all said we were very well behaved, unlike some of the naughty goats that escaped to follow us around the farm! We had lots of fun during our visit to the farm and learned even more. The children’s behaviour and enthusiasm was outstanding throughout the day, children shared their experiences and new knowledge confidently in discussions back at school.
