A Special Corner of South Wilford
We have had a school farm as South Wilford since September 2016. Since then the children have gained a lot from visiting the residents, cleaning, organising and petting the animals. It has been amazing to see how the children respond to this unique learning experience.
The chickens have become very friendly and love to be stroked. The rabbits are a huge hit, especially the mischievous white rabbit. The Guinea pigs, although shy are loving being cuddled by the children.
Each class has responsibility for the farm for one week a term, cleaning, feeding, tidying and generally caring for the animals.
A farm club will be running this term and there will be lots of opportunities to spend time on the farm.
Parents have been fantastic in offering to help and many have spoken about their delight at having such a resource for the children to experience.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the farm, by coming in at the weekends or by bringing in donations of food, hay, etc.
