Today the Year 2 children travelled around our local area to consolidate and enrich our science learning. We have been developing our understanding about food origins and the journey it makes to get to our local shops.
We began our journey at a dairy farm where we saw cows milked, newborn calves, tractors and asked lots of questions. We were shown the journey milk makes through pipes and into a tank before being collected to go to a cheese factory. Next, we travelled to see beef cows and newborn lambs (with a quick lunch at Mrs Marrs’ farm) then off to Torpenhow Cheese Farm. We saw yet more cows and learned about how their milk was made into cheese. Taste-testing the cheese before we delivered it to Harrison’s butchers. Samples taken to share with our families are going down a treat!
