Today we had a really nice day. We had a visitor who brought us some buckets of pond water. We spent the morning exploring what was inside. We found pond weed, snails, water boat bugs, tadpoles and lots of other little insects inside the water. It was such a great way to spend the morning.
This year we are off to Red Mountain Farm for our school trip. We are so excited to see lots of animals at the farm and have loads of fun.
There were lots of things to play with on the farm. We played with toy cars and tractors and had lots of fun in playgrounds inside and outside. We also had some fun in a really big sand pit.
We all got a go in the tractor. It was so much fun zooming around the farm.
And of course we saw some animals. We went for a walk around the farm and saw some animals in the fields. We saw goats, cows, horses, geese, donkeys and a pony. We were able to feed the animals grass but it tickled when they were eating it!
Inside one of the barns on the farm they had some baby animals. There were 2 little puppies that we got to hold and pet. They were so cute!
Today is Sport for all day! We get to spend the whole day having lots of fun playing games in lots of different areas around the school. We get to go to lots of different stations throughout the day. We had so much fun.
