Today Year One went to Acorn Farm in Kirby to enhance their learning on wild and domesticated animals. While we were there, the children got to handle some domesticated pets including rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks. The children also got to explore the farm and feed various animals such as ducks, goats, sheep, cows and chickens.
The Council have contacted us to inform as many peopel as we can about Giant Hogweed. Giant Hogweed is a large toxic plant that has been identified growing in many areas along the River Irwell valley. The plant can cause severe blisters and burns and even blindness if it comes into contact with the skin or eyes. Skin can remain sensitive to sunlight for years after it has been affected. It is important for parents and their children to understand what the plant looks like and how to avoid being hurt by it.
