The largest group of children in the visitor room to date…..57 children!
Today was a visit with a difference. The Reception and Year 1 children from Bredon Hancocks school came out at the same time. I decided that I would change the structure of the day to accommodate so many children. We split the children into groups and they did a round robin of activities in and around the farm yard. The morning activities were; meet the big calves, make a cows face with an ear tag, make a bird feeder, make a squishy robin, make a feathery book mark and make a pine cone chicken. The children took all their craft activities home with them.
After lunch 57 very, very muddy children came out of the play wood with big smiles on their face. Although some of the adults had managed to keep clean in the wood, by the time they had helped the children change they were just as muddy. A proper experience of a farm in a wet January.
