Student Blog: Week Beginning 24 March 2014

Year 10 & 11 ELBS Students go to the farm first thing in the morning before they come into school and then give us an account of what they did and what they enjoyed at the farm: Students are given a questionnaire to complete with the following questions: 1. What you did during your week on farm duty? 2. What you enjoyed?. 3. What you didn’t enjoy? 4. Your favourite animal and why? 5. What was the weather like? 6. Did anything out of the ordinary happen? 7. Any comments you would like to make:

Courtney:  I mostly fed the animals on my week at the farm and enjoyed feeding the lambsunsheep and watching the “Sheeplets”.  I didn’t enjoy cleaning up the pig poo!.  My favourite animal is the “Sheeplets”.  The weather was rainy and it was cold.  Nothing out of the ordinary happened but I would like to say “be careful if you let Thumper out, he likes to play chase”.

Sarah:  During my week on the farm I cleaned out the pigs, fed the sheep, ducks, chickens, calves, rabbits and guinea pigs.  I enjoyed looking after the calves but did not enjoy cleaning out the pigs.  My favourite animals are the calves and Thumper the rabbit.  The weather was quite good.  Nothing out of the ordinary  happened and I have nothing else to say.
