The children arrived at the show and set straight to visiting the many attractions this year. First stop was the sheep where they listened to lots of information, saw a shearing demonstration and saw sheep dance.
After the sheep the children moved onto the pigs and cows. They were given the opportunity to get up close to, and even brush, a cow.
Before lunch the children watched the alpacas and llamas in the show ring.
After lunch the children visited the BASC stand where they learned all about conservation of wildlife. They then moved onto the small animals, including a beautiful owl, a meerkat and some of the children even held a tarantula. There were lots of interesting people to tell us all about their animals.
Then it was off to the bee stand to learn about bees and honey.
We even got to taste some.
We then went to see the horses both real and play ones. It was great fun learning to gallop over the fences on our pretend horses.
Before we headed home we got the chance to listen to Adam Henson in his "ask the farmer" activity.
We then headed back to the bus for the ride back to nursery.
It had been a fun packed day so the journey home was a good time for a nap.
