Life on the Farm

Year 5 visited Abbey Farm on Thursday 6th June as part of their Geography farming topic. We were met by Mrs Nelstrop and given an introduction in the barn. She used some of Harry and Freddie's model farm vehicles to help explain what goes on! We then took a walk around an area of the farm identifying various trees and Blue Set got all 10 trees correct!!  We were then picked up by Mr Nelstrop with his tractor and trailer and shown around the different fields. He told us about the various crops, when they are planted and harvested, and the methods used to get the greatest possible amount of produce.   It was a very interesting afternoon.

Thank you very much to Mr and Mrs Nelstrop.
