On Thursday the grade fours and sixes went to the Collingwood Children’s Farm to learn about food origin and soil. We would recommend it to people of all ages if you don’t mind getting a bit dirty!
First we saw the chickens which were pretty cool, We hand fed them and some of them ate but most of them did not! There were six types of chicken origins ranging from Ireland to China!
Once we had said our farewells to the cows, we traveled over to the sheep. We fed them some sort of shredded hay. The lady was telling us about the male boss sheep and all of his girlfriends and how protective he is.
After our information session on bees we went to visit the horses. We fed them hay. We got to pat their manes, but unfortunately we did not get to ride them.
Next we saw the bees and we did not get feed them, but we got to go into a caravan which had heaps of information on bees. Next we had guinea pig cuddles. There were 4 guinea pigs being passed around but we only got to cuddle one.
After we saw the Guinea pigs we had lunch and got in the bus on the way back to home.
