CULLINGWORTH children spent a day down on the farm without leaving the village primary school.

‘Farmer Ian’ took his mobile farm to the school together with a bevy of animals that the pupils might see on a real farm.

School spokesman Janice Parfett said: “The children got to meet Winnie the miniature cow, Trevor the tortoise, two pygmy goat kids and their mother, a donkey, a Shetland pony, some guinea pigs, ducklings and Meg the friendly sheep dog.

“This enhanced their learning around topic Spring on the Farm, which is all about life on a farm and the animals you may find there.

“The children learned facts about the animals and how they are cared for. The best bit was getting to pet the animals up close.”

Year two pupil Harrison Feather told the children about life as a young farmer, showing off the rosettes he won showing his cows.
