A holiday on the farm
Hello! I’m Peter and this is my sister Jane. Last week we went on a holiday to Uncle Fred’s farm.
Uncle Fred invited us to spend a week at his farm. We gladly accepted his invitation. We took with us some old clothes and our wellington boots.
At nine o’ clock we drove away from the busy town roads into the countryside.
I hope you will enjoy your holiday. Would you like to come with me round the farm?
Yes uncle, we are coming!
Jane looked after the hens. She fed them and went to the coop to collect the eggs in a basket.
He raked the hay into small piles so that it could be easily gathered. Uncle Fred threw little bundles of cut dry grass up on the cart. He did so with a hay fork.
Then we played in the farmyard. Uncle warned us to stay away from the tractor because farm machinery tends to be very dangerous.
In the afternoon Peter used to have a ride on the back of old Tom, the farm horse...
… while my sister Jane, went with Uncle Fred to see if the sheep and lambs were safe and well.
Uncle used to put his fingers in his mouth and give a whistle. His black and white dog used to round up the sheep and steer them into the farmyard. It used to keep the sheep together when they were moving from one place to another.
Here we saw the greenhouses where vegetables and fruits are grown out of season.
Another job was to feed the little piglets. Their food was made up of all the scraps which had been left over from meals.
On the last day we had a lovely picnic lunch in the field. Auntie Doris prepared some delicious food and also some drinks. It was a great day!
All too soon, the holiday came to an end, and next morning we waved good-bye to our animal friends and set off on the return journey.
