On Thursday morning, 16 January, 2020, the students of grade 1 and 2 were driven in huge colorful buses to Big Barn Farm, on their first field trip. The children enjoyed all the activities which were lined up for them. Feeding and petting the barn animals; cows, chicken, geese, ducks, turkeys and sheep was a unique experience for most of them. They were excited to watch the animals in close proximity. The ride in the tractor, the children liked immensely.
Planting seeds was an experience new for some. Play is something all children look forward to, they loved the time spent in the ‘Play Area’ of the farm. A picnic without food is incomplete, the children relished the variety of food set before them, having built an appetite with the numerous events. The bottom line was, “We had a whale of a time ma’am, can we do it more often?
