A picnic is always exciting and when it is at the farm, it is doubly so! The trip to Mother Sanctuary in Sarjapur Road started off on a bright sunny morning. After a 45 minute drive we arrived at a tree - studded farm much to the excitement of the children.
After a short break to eat their snacks, we set off in groups to a flora and fauna treat! The children got to learn about different fruits and vegetables. Learning about herbs was an experience for their tactile and olfactory senses.
The children interacted with farm animals which our urban children would not get to do. There was a lot of fun and revelry during a game of Tug of War. The trampoline delighted them to no end!
The trip to the farm ended with lunch and a goody bag which they got to take home containing farm products.
Albeit tired, a happy lot returned to school after a nap in the bus!
