Ambury Farm

On Wednesday Room 3 went to Ambury Farm by bus. Then we went to a room that smelt bad. We didn't sit on the floor, we got to sit on mats. Next we went to the milking shed and a lady told us all about cows. She got a cow and her name was Rosie and she tickled the cow. She rubbed Rosie and put the milking cup over the cows teat on her udder. It sucked the udder. The cow stomped her feet and the milk came out. After that we went to the shearing shed. Another lady had to shear the sheep's bottom. She said that flies eat poo. If the flies lay eggs and the baby fly hatches then the baby flies will eat the sheep's skin and the sheep will die. She made the sheep stand up and then the sheep went down the shoot to the other sheep. We went to lamb feeding and patted a horse and then to chicken feeding. The goat tickled me when I fed him. I liked feeding the goat.

Pooey! Ambury Farm is stinky. BUT..... there are cute animals and there are also baby lambs and I took so many photos of animals. We went to see the cows. One cow was doing poos. My best part was that Steven got poo on his hands.

Room 3 went to Ambury Farm. There was a big cow. Don't step on me! It was very big. I don't want to get squashed! Then we saw the sheep getting shorn and then we went for a little walk. We fed lots of animals. First we met a sheep and then we met a horse called Belle-Donna. She was very big because she is a clydesdale horse. They pull big things. I took a photo of the horse. Next we saw a goat and we gave him some food. Next we met a turkey called 'Timmy the Turkey'. We all got to look at the pig called 'Charlotte the Pig'. Then we fed the cute little lambs. There were 13 lambs. After we saw bulls. Then we saw some rabbits and we saw the lambs again and we patted them. My favourite part was the cute lambs.

After we saw Belle-Donna.... she's a horse! We fed some lambs and there were 13! Next we saw some chickens. My best part was looking at the bunny rabbits.

We are learning about dairy cows and their job on the farm.

  Click here to go to the dairy cow game  - www.operationdairy.com  


We found this game very useful today.  It helped us to answer some of our inquiry learning questions. Have fun while learning!

Ambury Farm Trip - 11th August

Children will need to bring morning tea, lunch (no lunch orders) and water for drinking. 
As this an ARC park we are asked to have ‘litterless lunches.’  
Children need to wear old clothes. They must have closed in footwear.  Gumboots would be ideal if children 
have them but not essential.  
If the weather is not too wet children will be walking 
around the farm so we advise a warm jacket preferably shower-proof. 
Please complete the permission slip if you have not already done so.
