Class 2 visited Rhyddings Farm today where Mrs Thorpe helped them to learn exactly why Ackworth is such a successful area to farm. The children enjoyed their walk through the village to the farm, visiting a livestock farm along the way and talking to the farmer about his cattle.

At Rhyddings farm, Jack told the children how the farmers use machinery today to plant seeds and harvest the crops and they were able to see the wheat beginning to grow in the fields. They also got to meet some of the farm animals such as ducks, horses and the goat!

The children had a fantastic day and their behaviour was exemplary! A big thank you to Mrs Thorpe for her hard work in arranging the visit for us.
