Badgers enjoy a trip to the farm


On Tuesday 10th May, Witchampton primary school’s Badgers Class (Years 1 and 2) had a wonderful visit to Launceston Farm to enhance their learning in Science and Design Technology.

They began by looking for signs of spring, noticing that the calves had been born and many plants were beginning to bloom. Next they collected different petals and leaves to create their own spring bracelets.
The class had fun tracking the journey of a wheat seed and seeing it grow in the field before making bread themselves. No pesticides are used at the organic Launceston Farm. This meant that there was a wide variety of plants and insects to observe among the wheat.
The group also made their own butter by shaking a container full of double cream. They were then able to spread their homemade butter on their own still-warm fresh-baked bread and enjoy it – the perfect end to a wonderful morning on the farm.
