Ambury Farm Park

WALT: Identify animals that can be found on a farm and talk about the foods that these animals can give us.
What we did:
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>watched a cow being milked using a machine
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>blocked our noses when the cow went to the toilet on the ground
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>heard the calves mooing for their milk
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>watched the calves being fed using a pretend udder
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>fed the cows broccoli with our own hands
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>walked through the poo in the cow and sheep paddocks
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>shared our ideas about why sheep need to be ‘crutched’
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>felt real wool that had come off a sheep
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>slid outside like sheep do when they have had their wool cut
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>fed the goats, hens, roosters, lambs and cows with our bare hands (we thought it tickled!)
<![if !supportLists]>·         <![endif]>had lots of fun and challenged ourselves to have a go at everything!!!

We were so lucky because we had lots of wonderful Room 12 parents to help during our visit. Thank you!!


  1. Wow what a great day everyone had learning about all those different farm animals! Joseph described all sorts of things to us and we might just have to go back for another visit to see how those piglets and calves are doing. Trembath family

  2. Amazing, all these children look like they've learnt lots. Hopefully i can hear some of the fantastic learning when our buddies come!

  3. Wow! it looks like you guys had lots of fun there.My favorite picture was when everyone was patting the horse.

    WOW exciting! I love going to Ambery Farm! When I went I got to milk a cow with my own hands! Did you see the peacock that they have? I hope its still there. He left his feathers everywhere! Was the calf's body warm and soft? The slide that is used when the sheep slide down looked so cool! I hope you didn't crash into one when you went down it! Tell me all about your trip when its the next wet day(if there is one) I hope you all had a good time at Ambury Farm. See you at school.
