We had a delightful day at the farm. We talked about life cycles, looked at grain harvested at the farm and parts of a flower. Outside we examined different breads of sheep, the sheep dog was collecting them up and worked with farmer Daves son. We met a day old baby calf and first time mother. Dave showed the class how a sheep was sheered and explained what they did with the wool after. We enjoyed a walk across the field and fed the goats this was after a picnic outdoors.

The children have been using everyday language to talk about time comparing different times and where the clock hands need to be for each hour. We did this by playing ‘What Time Is It Mr Wolf?’ We have been using the stop watch to calculate how long games last for working out minutes and seconds on a digital clock. Finally we have been having a go at making number patterns, exploring 2s, 5s and 10s. We have made some extremely big numbers in the investigation station.
