P1 Visit to Tannaghmore Farm


Primary One children had a fantastic time at Tannaghmore, Craigavon.   All the children got to see and pet farm animals, hold new born animals and even milk a cow! Great learning and fun was had by all. We also visited the garden nursery beside the farm and saw how they grow plants from seeds in the ‘mist room’ and in the big poly tunnels. Take the time to look at our class photos.
