Crowthorne school pupils find out what Old Macdonald has down on his farm

Oaklands Infant School

PUPILS from a Crowthorne primary school enjoyed a day down on the farm.

Old Macdonald would have had a field day in the fields, as the Year 2 youngsters from Oaklands Infants School saw cows, chickens and pigs when they visited Rushall Farm in Bradfield.

And with an oink, oink here and a moo, moo there, they learnt more about the animals that are born on a farm, including some lambs that made their first appearance hours before the children arrived.

Afterwards, they learnt about food chains, how honeybees pollinate flowers and pond dipping.

A spokesperson for the school said: “All of the children had the opportunity to hold a lamb and we were lucky to see some lambs that had been born just before our arrival.

“We had a great day and the staff at Rushall farm were impressed with the children’s behaviour and knowledge.”
