On Wednesday 5th June, years 4, 5 and 6 went to Writtle University College to attend the Food and Farming day. Scarecrows, taste-testing, birds of prey and sheep shearing – the twelfth Essex Schools Food and Farming Day has been an unforgettable event for us all. We met a giant cucumber person and a pepper person. We got to eat tiny cucumbers that he grew himself. We watched a sheep show and we learned that fleece doesn't burn, that why it is used for insulation in houses. One of the sheep had a fleece that could grow 3 feet long. We saw lots of other animals like cows, sheep, pigs, chickens, turkeys and ducks. Some of us tasted pork sausage and venison, cottage a cheese, yogurt and milk. It was delicious. It was amazing and great fun.
