The Year 2 classes LOVED their special visit out to Narnu Farm on Hindmarsh Island.
The day was jam-packed with so many events as the children enjoyed learning about things from the past. Oh, and spending time with all the gorgeous animals of course!
Horse riding was certainly a highlight for the students. Even the children who were a bit nervous braved the saddle and rode their horse with pride. It was such a beautiful thing to see.
Bouncing around the back of a truck visiting the horses, feeding them carrots and giving them lots of pats was so much fun.
We put Sally the Clydesdale to work using an old plough as we planted invisible seeds (it grows into invisible plants you know). We learnt how difficult life was for people in the past and certainly have a new appreciation for our lives today.
We spent some time viewing blacksmithing in action – a horse’s ‘toenails’ are certainly an interesting piece of anatomy!
Feeding chickens, lambs, pigs, calves and goats was pretty special. Cuddling gorgeous little fluff balls of guinea pigs and holding chicks. It was truly a special experience.
Thank you to Sarah and her enthusiastic team for looking after us on our visit. Our lovely parent helpers – we could not have done it without you, so thank you!
