The whole of Pre-Prep, teachers and willing helpers enjoyed a lovely day at Cotswold Farm Park. Although the day started a little bit cold and drizzly, some watery sunshine finally appeared in the later afternoon.
The trip started with a milking demonstration on a very placid goat, which they enjoyed. The children asked lots of sensible questions. In groups, the pupils enjoyed many other activities, including:
- learning about baby chicks and how to handle them
- learning about rabbit welfare, whilst having the opportunity to hold and stroke an enormous rabbit
- going on a tractor safari ride around the site
The adventure playground with slides, swings and a combine harvester was very popular, as was the bouncy pillow (trampoline). All children loved feeding the rare breed animals with their special food and they enjoyed a walk in the maze and around the woodland adventure walk, balancing on tree trunks and chains.
It was a lovely day. Lots of fresh air helped tire out the children, many of whom
enjoyed a quick snooze on the coach home.
