Summer 2 Week 1 - Farm Visit

Farm Visit
Wolf Rock Class (and the Y5 children from Longships) have had an educational afternoon today on Ennis Barton Farm, in Fraddon.
The Kingfisher award team were amazing at telling us about the wildlife on the farm - they even let us put our hand in a pile of steaming cow poo! That really got use excited.
We explored the pond on the farm and found some amazing aquatic life. The volunteers noted how excellent some of our questioning skills were. We also looked at fresh deer tracks and discovered which species of British deer they belonged to. 
In the field, we looked closely at soil and studied the different parts of its structure. We were surprised to learn how much air and moisture can be found in it.
Here are some photographs from the experience...
