Last Wednesday, Year 1 and Mrs Bird had a fantastic day out  at Willow Farm, home of Amy T (Year 2). The children learned about many different aspects of farming  – from bees to cattle and crops – at the mixed farm which adjoins the Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s  Hickling reserve. Highlights were undoubtedly the ride on the trailer and calling for Boris the Bull (who did turn up)!

Amy’s father is a previous award winner of the national Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group’s Silver Lapwing Award, achieved for the environmentally friendly approach to farming adopted at Willow Farm.  Many thanks to the Tallowin family for a wonderful trip!
