Whirlow Hall Farm
What a fantastic experience for a group of our Year 3s, who spend three days at Whirlow in March. There was so much to see! We were just at the right tme to meet all the newborn lambs, some tiny pink piglets, and a very energetic calf. Everyone helped with the farm jobs, collected the eggs and made our own lamb meatballs for tea. But it wasn't all work. We all loved riding Ruby the pony, and it was great fun building dens in the woods, even if some of us did get very muddy indeed!
Can you guess what ingredient Olivia is sniffing?
Dane doesn't look too sure about the meatballs, but they tasted delicious after Mr Briggs had cooked them!
