On the 20th March Cobwebs travelled to Mount pleasant Farm and enjoyed a full day engaging in and helping Mrs Hatch do all of the jobs on the farm. The children had the opportunity to feed and water chickens, lambs and pigs. We also looked at where and how the animals live and the care that is needed to keep them safe and clean.
After a class discussion cobwebs have decided their favourite part of the farm trip was when they fed the two pigs called Pinky and Percy. They loved how Percy kept stealing Pinky’s share of the food.
We would like to thank Mount pleasant farm for a lovely day!
Yesterday we visited the farm, we learnt all about chickens, pigs, sheep and cows! We fed the chickens and collected the eggs that they had laid. We realised that all eggs are different on the outside but inside they are all the same.
We also fed the sheep -as they ate their food out of our hand, their tongues tickled our hands. They had three week old lambs too, we listened to them calling out for their Mummy!
Next we visited the pigs, they were called Pinky and Percy. One had a straight tail and one had a curly tail.
After that, we visited the cows. The farm had 200 cows! We walked all the way to the end of the cow shed – some of us thought it was a little bit stinky!
We had a lovely day at the farm and we learnt so many exciting things about the animals – we even pretended to milk the cow!
Thanks for having us Mount Pleasant Farm!!
This week we have been practising ordering our numbers to 20.
Can you practise at home?
This week we have been looking at foods that are healthy for us. We have explored the fruits that Handa takes to Akeyo and we have even made our own healthy pizzas. We have also designed our own fruit bowls full of delicious fruits!
We have been talking about foods that are unhealthy for us too – we know that sweets, chocolate and chips are unhealthy for us but we have decided that it is okay to have them as a treat but it is not good to eat them every day!
We are trying to be really healthy by eating fruit everyday and drinking lots of water.
I challenge you to try a new healthy food – perhaps a guava, or a mango or maybe even a passion fruit!
Today we have been exploring how to make sounds using the instruments. We have been looking at different tribal dances and trying to copy the dances and mimic the music that they dance too.
We really enjoyed exploring all the different sounds that instruments make.
This half term we are learning the story ‘Handa’s Surprise’, we will be learning to tell it off by heart and we will be exploring all the fruit that Handa talks about in her story.
I challenge you to use the story map to retell the story to all your friends and family!
Brilliant effort Cobwebs! As it was world book day on the 2/3/17 children in Cobwebs dressed up as a character from their favourite book. We have got The little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, Batman and Bat women, Dennis the Menace, A tiger from The Tiger who came to tea, Hulk, Minnie Mouse, Poppy from Trolls and many more! You all looked dazzling!
