5th class in Secret Valley Farm


5th class were invited to Secret Valley Farm recently to be the stars filmed with the animals. Ann and John O'Connor invited them to take part in recording what goes on at the farm for children of all ages. It was  for their collaboration with Discovery Primary Science. A visit to the farm can now be a module for the Discovery Primary Science Award.  The children had a marvellous day.  It first of all started with bottle  feeding the kids and there was a lot of baby goats to be fed that morning. Ann then asked them about the habitats of wild animals and told them about  how animals adapt themselves to their habitats. They met the  tortoise,  followed by the snake and iguana. Despite some hesitation most of them held the snake and rubbed the lizard. They could hold a beetle, a hedgehog and best of all was the rat. The were able to see the racoon, squirrel, tarantualla and  meercat in their cages at a distance. They also had fun on the play equipment after their lunch. It was a great morning and a lovely break from the classroom. Thanks to the O'Connors for inviting them.
