The whole school recently enjoyed a visit to the ‘Countryside Live’ event at the Ledston Estate, near South Milford. The event encompasses everything to do with the countryside and the children were able to take part in activities, watch and learn all about various farm animals.
Class 2 took part in a workshop to make corn dollies, handled baby ducklings and learned about their care, watched a ‘Dancing Sheep’ show and a demonstration of a sheep being sheared and watched a clever sheepdog round up ducks! They also enjoyed a workshop around how all food chains are interlinked and dependent on the sun for life.
The weather stayed fine and the children had a fantastic day.
