Half term adventures at Ufton!

Welcome back pals.

Although my Ufton Adventure and Ufton History pals were not on site last week, as they were having a well earned rest for half term (I’m sure the teachers relished in having a week off too!), I still managed to have a busy week around the grounds at Ufton Court.

We hosted a fantastic family day on Friday where some of my pals who have been here before were able to bring their parents for a day of great activities! We went on a woodland walk, learnt how to make structures from natural objects to house ‘Bobby the Biscuit’ and stop him from getting wet in a ‘storm’ and did lots of great orienteering and circus skills.

At the beginning of the week though, I spent a lot of my time running around the grounds, with my ears flapping in the wind. I particularly loved visiting my pals on the farm and as we all know, the early dog catches the worm!

On Monday I had a pig-nic with Squeak and his friends and on Tuesday, I went to visit Ada, Elvis and Barney the goats. We spent all day climbing around their equipment which was very tiring and so I was happy to go home and curl up in front of the fire! I spent some time with Daisy and Jess the sheep this week too which was baaa-mazing. That reminds me of a joke:

What is a sheep’s favourite game? Baa-dminton!!

Although I love spending time with my animal friends on the farm, I can’t wait to see which fun activities I’ll be able to get up to this half term!
