Year 7 Donkey Sanctuary

14th June 2016

On Tuesday 14th June, 7CD visited Brookfield Farm which is part of the Donkey Sanctuary. We had been invited by South West Highways who have been working on the farm to take part in a functional maths and construction day.

This visit was building on previous connections we have had with South West Highways, last year we ran a joint workshop concentrating on road hazards and the real life maths problems SWH deal with.

South West Highways are building a new donkey hospital at Brookfield Farm and we were lucky enough to have a site visit around the hospital.

7CD were given a building site safety talk, tried on some of the equipment they wear to keep themselves safe and completed a construction activity.

We were also lucky enough to have a tour of the farm and interact with the donkeys! We groomed some of the older donkeys and saw some new born baby foals

We had a lovely day and we may get a chance to visit the hospital when it is completed!

Here are a few pictures from the day:
