Form 2 Visit Cogges Manor Farm
Posted on 23rd Sep, 2020
Form 2 boys spent an exciting and most informative day at Cogges Manor Farm. The morning was jam-packed with activities, such as wool carding, weaving and even milking a cardboard cow and making butter.
The boys tried their hand at designing labels for home-made crisps and worked very hard in the kitchen, peeling parsnips and carrots to make healthy crisps.
After lunch and a quick game of football, the boys set off exploring the farm, learning how to look after domestic animals to ensure the pigs, chickens, Shetland ponies and goats stay healthy. Without a doubt, feeding goat Jonathan was the highlight of the day – only the bravest managed to keep their palms straight when he tickled them searching for carrots.
The trip drew to a close in the beautifully kept kitchen garden, where wet from the rain but still in high spirits, the pupils of CCCS took part in a word search, making up the word ‘organic’!
What a brilliant way to start Michaelmas Term! Somehow after our 'virtual' Trinity Term, it felt particularly special being part of the community again and enjoying what local museums have to offer.
