STAG Class from Priorswood Primary School, Taunton, enjoyed a Dawn 'til Dusk day at Magdalen Farm, in Winsham.

The focus of the day was to look at ways to help climate change.

The Stags had a 7am start, allowing them to arrive at the farm in time for breakfast.

The day included feeding, watering and stroking the pigs; feeding the chickens and collecting the eggs; and visiting the goats and their kids.

The goats appeared to be the children's favourite activity. Some of the goats were only a couple of months old and the Stags loved playing and having cuddles with them.

The Stag’s learnt about the impact animals can have on climate change and the importance of organic and free range farming.

Potatoes were planted and salad was picked from the farm for lunch to accompany homemade pizzas cooked in a cob oven.

In the afternoon, the Stags learnt how important it is not to destroy our wildlife.

They created nests for the dormice to hibernate in, made eco-farms, hunted for mini-beasts and visited Jenny the resident horse.

Fruit grown on the farm, as opposed to fruit shipped in from thousands of miles away, was used to prepare delicious smoothies using a blender bike.

The day ended with dinner and a camp fire with sing songs and marshmallows.

The Stags have since each made a promise to tackle climate change in their own way.

Jordan Murphy, from Priorswood, said: “It was an action packed day.

"All the children had such fun whilst learning about animals, farming and how we can all do our bit to combat climate change.

"We would like to give a massive thank you to Magdalen Farm for having us and we hope to be returning again soon.”

A spokesperson for The Redstart Learning Partnership, of which Priorswood is a member, said: “What a fabulous opportunity for the children with such an important focus.

"It looks like they all had such a wonderful experience and have learnt so much in one day.

"We would also like to thank Magdalen Farm for hosting our Stags.”
