The theme for the month of June was “Farm Animals”, and the best way for the children to learn about the animals was to go to our local farm. We visited Lee Valley farm and naturally the children were very excited. Lee valley farm is in Waltham abbey and is ideally located for nurseries in Enfield, Childminders in Enfield and local schools to visit.
The children saw pigs, chased the chickens around in their pens (or shall I say the chickens chased them around).
We talked about what we get from the animals, their body parts and the sounds they make. The farm was a very safe place for the children to freely explore. They couldn’t wait to feed the animals, which I thought was very caring and then realised it was mostly because it tickled their hands.
