Animal Therapy

Today pupils enjoyed a visit from Ark Farm, an educational mobile farm. Classes enjoyed spending time with the animals which included lambs, pigs, a donkey, a goat and dogs, allowing the pupils to get up close and personal to have a hands-on tactile experience.

All pupils engaged with all the animals really well and enjoyed the experience enormously. Interacting with the animals held their focus and attention for the duration of the time that they spent with them as well as having a calming effect on the pupils.

The pupils enjoyed learning about the animals, what the animals eat and feeding them. The lambs were a particular favourite with all the pupils.
