Paws for thought with Murphy
Phew, it’s been a busy few weeks with all of my pals back at school now, but boy have I had the most amazing time.
This week I’ve been very lucky in joining my pals for a WW2 day visit at Ufton.
I started off by marching down the drive with the AEP (Pam) to meet all of the evacuees. They looked great, dressed in their WW2 costumes… some even had paper bags to carry their lunch in!
We started off by learning about some artefacts – did you know that people in the 1940s didn’t have a washing machine?
We then learnt about the countryside and explored the grounds at Ufton. I loved this activity because I know my way around so well! We ended up on the farm where we learnt how to feed my furry friends, the goats, and how to milk the cows in the yard.
Which reminds me of a joke…
Q: Why does a milking stool have only 3 legs?
A: Because the cow has the udder.
After a quick bite to eat, we learnt all about the Air Raid. Did you know that during the air raids, people weren’t allowed to have their lights on and had to take shelter in the Anderson shelters? It sounded like a scary time but my pals did very well to concentrate and understand.
What a busy day we had.
