Goatally Wild about Goats!
We have been very excited to welcome a special visit by three kid goats today. They have come to us from Goatally Soaps of Ickham and every year group had a time-slot to meet and greet them and ask questions of their owner, Chloe Wilcock. There were lots of interesting facts and figures that the children wanted to know and Chloe was wonderfully informative in her responses. So much to talk about and learn from these special guests. This was especially inspiring to Hedgehog Class, who are currently enjoying working with the Traditional Tale of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.
Afterwards, Chloe led a couple of Key Stage based talks and demonstrations in the hall, about animal care, making soap and using botanicals. This all had super links to our science topics of changing states of materials, plants and their properties, and also about running a sustainable and environmental rural business model.
What a bleat....ooops....treat!
