On Thursday morning all the children in Class 2 walked down to the Harewood Estate for a "Meet the Pets" workshop. We split into two year groups and year 2 started by having a look around the Bird Garden.
First stop, the penguins!
We then set off to see the other birds including the parrots..
and the owls.
We saw lots of bugs in the bug garden.
The children were inspired to build bug houses and hotels in our own school garden.
We even had time for a few minutes play on the adventure playground.
We made sure our hands were clean before and after we touched the pets.
The first activity in the workshop was to think about how to look after pets.
The children had to put some cards in order thinking about prioritising the needs of a pet.
We then found out about simple food chains.
We played a game identifying which animals were carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.
It was then time to explore the farm. We saw goats and pigs,
and everyone had the chance to stroke a rabbit.
We had a great morning down on the farm and it was a brilliant way to finish off our pets topic from the spring term and introduce our new topic for the summer term which is all about birds and bugs. Thank you to the parents that volunteered to help us on the visit, we really appreciate your support.
