Our School Farm Safety Walk

Yesterday, we went to Godwins farm on a special farm safety mission. We had some guests with us who will reveal a big farm safety message with us in the new year – watch this space for news!

Many thanks to our secret guests and to the Godwin’s for letting us visit their farm and to Mrs Godwin for her amazing chocolate brownie cake, ice cream and the very welcome warm cups of tea!

The ploughing

We went to lidl for breakfast.I had a pancake,yoghurt and a strawberry. We went to the stand 379. We worked there for a while helping the HSA and IFA with their circle the dangers worksheets for kids and showing our website www.farmsafety4kids.net. We helped little kids and showed them the website. For Lunch we had supermacs. I had curry chips. We walked around and we saw hurley stands. We went to the RTE tent. Then we went to Tesco and got free slices of pizza. We saw lots of tractors.We saw lots of different balloons floating in the sky. We went to the ESB tent. We played games and got free stuff. I got a ruler,pens and a keyring/measuring tape.Then we went to King crisps. We found a golden potatoe .We got packets of crisps. We went to corrib oil stand. We meet Anna May McHugh. We allso saw the tree stand. It was very mucky. We went to Inovation stand. We met Alma Jordan from Agrikids there, showcasing and selling her farm safety children books and clothing range. Then we went home. On the way home we went to Athlone for food. It was 9 o’clock when we got home. I fell asleep at 11.30.

It was a brilliant day. I would like to do it again but  not working so we can look around all day. If it had more free stuff for kids it would be better. I was cross because only some stands where giving out free stuff for kids. I still had a good time. I would like to have gone to the Ice-cream van. The end.
