On Thursday, our Year 3 classes set off for the lovely Collings Hanger Farm in Prestwood.
They spent the day learning about farming and why it is important to keep the animals well treated. Year 3 got to meet some very cute pigs, saw some fantastic cows and met the friendliest sheep anyone had ever met, Timmy! We are all convinced Timmy thought he was a puppy instead of a sheep himself!
The children also got to learn out the types of crops the farm grow and took a walking tour through the herb garden via the grape vines!
The children also got to learn about how wheat is milled into flour (and just how hard it is to turn a manual mill!) which led them to a fantastic use for all that flour, Pizza!
Year 3 got to push out their own dough, topping their pizzas of with their own toppings which made a great addition to their lunches, especially after running up all those hills all morning…
The day finished up with the children making bookmarks using the flowers they found in the fields, we had some very beautiful creations!
