It was really lovely to see the Year 1 children again and to meet the new reception children from Cropthorne with Charlton C of E First School.
Our topic was ‘people who help us’. To start with the children told me farmers grow wheat to make bread. I then told them about what happens to the milk our cows produce. The children saw that farmers help to make milk shake, butter, liquid milk, chocolate, ice cream, cream, yoghurt and cheese.
The children and I then looked at the toy farm I had set up and we talked about the fact that lots of people help me. I explained to the children that I work with fencing contractors, spray contractors, vets, fertilizer reps, bank managers etc…
In the farm yard, we looked at the cows in their winter housing and learnt that farmers help the animals to feel more comfortable in colder weather by putting them in sheds. We then walked to the small wood, to make winter housing for the animals. After lunch the children enjoyed the new stickman trail in the wood.
