Rushall farm fun

We had a fantastic time on our trip to Rushall Farm.


We spent half the day in the woods and half the day on the farm...


In the woods:

We collected different leaves and flowers of all different colours, shapes and sizes. We listened to the bird songs and looked out for minibeasts. 

We went into the barn to learn about bees and found out about how bees make honey. We even learnt a bee waggle dance!

We learnt about food chains and played a game pretending to be birds catching caterpillars.

We went down to the pond to find some creatures that live in the water. We used nets to do pond dipping and found some creatures like tadpoles, water boatmen, leeches and damson fly nymphs!


We ate lunch at the barn with our friends.


At the farm:

We had a bumpy tractor ride through the woods to the farm. On the way we went past the fields to see the cows. They tried to follow us out of the field! At the farm we saw the Kune Kune pig Camilla and some different kinds of pigs including BIG PIG. We met the hungry Shetland ponies and Fizz the donkey.. We went to see some of the mummy sheep and the young lambs. We went in the pen with the lambs and they were soft and fluffy but they did like to nibble on our clothes! Some of us got a cuddle with a lamb.

We enjoyed feeding the chickens and they pecked corn from our hands.


We had such a busy day at the farm and lots of fun!
