Spring Bank Primary School

Meanwood Farm


Reception had a wonderful day at the farm last week. We started at the pond, where we worked in pairs and used nets to find lots of different creepy crawlies. We found blood worms, leeches and lots of pond snails! We then used magnifying glasses and pipettes to have a closer look.

After lunch we went on a tour of the farm, we got to hold a rabbit, feed the rams and goats and have a wander around the chicken coop alongside the chickens! We even found some freshly laid eggs!

The highlight for lots of the children (and staff) was getting to feed the lambs using baby bottles filled with warm milk. The children really enjoyed this experience.

Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the cost of this school trip, without your support this trip could not have gone ahead.

Please have a look at the photos below, which help show what a fantastic experience the whole day was.
