On Tuesday 14 August the Early Learners A Class ventured down to the Farm. The children were very excited and were looking forward to seeing the sheep and Ollie the farm dog.
On the way down the steep hill we heard, and then saw, two kookaburras laughing. They were sitting on a branch high up in a tree. As we got closer, the children could smell the smoke coming from the fire pit. We sat around on the stone blocks, watching the fire, resting our little legs and enjoying the surrounding environment until Farmer Wall was available to join us.
The children were very lucky to be able to pat and cuddle a little lamb that was born earlier that morning. Farmer Wall then took us for a walk through the paddocks to see the sheep that would have their baby lambs soon and then to see the lambs that were born 1-2 weeks earlier.
What an amazing experience for our youngest learners to have this opportunity available on their campus.
During lunchtime back in the classroom, there was lots of conversation about the farm visit.
The lambs were so cute! – Gerry
I had so much fun at the farm. – Harrison

Thank you to all the parents that joined us on this adventure and the help you provided assisting all the children.
