What a wonderful day we all had at Heaves Farm yesterday!! The whole school walked up the hill to enjoy learning more about farming and how our food gets to our plates. Some of our favourite sections of our tour included: the piglets, tractors, watching the sheep dogs rounding up the sheep and holding the new-born chicks. This event is organised by the Westmorland County Agricultural Society every two years; who invite schools from all over the area to visit – over 1600 school children from Cumbria visited Heaves Farm this year. We feel extremely priviledged to have been invited once again. Another memorable learning adventure at Levens School.
Scafell Class have enjoyed investigating how beans and seeds germinate and explored the conditions for growing seeds during their Science topic on Living Things. Today we continued our observational drawings and annotations showing how our beans have changed over time.
Bowfell Class took part in an orienteering trail set up by Dallam School this week. We went on the hunt for the lost pants!
