Tiny farm hands


Old McDonald had a farm, and so too did the Eden Lodge Nursery School.

At least, for just today, they did, when farmers Uncle Alvin Remeo and Auntie Ronnette Bowen from the Ministry of Agriculture’s Animal Nutrition Unit took some of their “little friends” to visit the tots there.

EL8It was pure fun for the children as they got opportunities not only to touch and stroke some of the very cute kits (baby rabbits) and lambs, but to feed them as well –– which even thrilled more.

Uncle Alvin and Auntie Ronnette provided  the children with much information, showing them a video on animals, and giving them lessons on the correct names for the males and females, and the young.

The youngsters also played the Name That Animal game, in which they viewed pictures of meat any guessed what animals provided it.

It was a day filled with education and excitement for the children.

The school’s theme this year is Our Heritage, Our Roots. During this term they focused specifically on culture and food.

Eden Lodge Nursery pupils’ adventures continue next Wednesday when they go on tour of a supermarket “exploring foods”.
