Larch and Kingfishers Classes

Countryside day 2018

Wow, what an incredible day we’ve had at the Countryside day today! We went to Matterley Bowl Estate near Winchester and spent time learning about the working Countryside.

Firstly, we met Laura and found out all about game-keeping. We got to hold a chick!

Next, we learnt about the different crops that are grown on the farm and what they are used for:

After that we learnt all about how the wheat can be used to make bread, and had a go at kneading some dough and tasting some bread:

After lunch we went to the dairy part of the farm. We met the cows and were excited to see the calves. We saw where the cows are milked and then had a go at making our own cheese!

We learnt so much today and can’t wait to start our project work for the Alresford Country show!
