Another typical day at the mini farm

I went to the mini farm yesterday and I was one hour late so I got five hundred words.

I walked there and got there at eleven o’clock then I cleaned the chickens out put some straw in the nest boxes, I found one egg. I went on to the next job .

Kev, the boss of spotlight, called a dinner break, after we had our dinner we got shown how to use the petrol strimmer.

I moved lots of bricks and rubble then Kev brought us one by one to use the strimmer to see if any body was not suitable to use it, so they could be taught to use it properly. I had a go of the strimmer, it was fun and I wanted another go of it.

I did extra jobs to work off my words, I worked two hundred and fifty words off, so I only had to do two hundred then I told Kane to go get changed so I got an extra fifty words, then I came back to Spotlight and did them in twenty minutes

A typical day at the Spotlight mini farm

Mini Farm

One day I went up the mini farm with Spotlight. We got there by the mini bus. On Wednesday, we picked everyone up then we went up the mini farm. We went to put our P.P.E (Personal Protective Equipment) on, then we went to work.One thing you should know is how to use the tools right.
I went to make trenches then I got some peas, then I put some peas down. Then we went for a break. Then 10 - 15 mins later, Kevin (the boss at Spotlight) gave us different jobs to do.

When we are up ther mini farm we do jobs like cleaning the pigs out and we do planting and digging.
