Year 5 visit from a farmer

In a few weeks time, Year 5 will be visiting Matfen Farm in Northumberland to see lambing in progress. Mr. Thompson, the farmer, visited our class today to talk to us about life on the farm, jobs that farming creates, how crops are grown and how animals are reared. Mr. Thompson brought in some wheat, which the children got to mill by hand into flour.
