Junior Infants had a fantastic day out on their school tour to Glenilen Farm and Skibbereen Sports Centre.

We had a fun singsong on the bus journey to Glenilen Farm in Drimoleague, which was our first port of call.  There Valerie explained how the milk from their cows is used to produce the most delicious butter, yogurts and desserts!  Would you believe Glenilen uses 1 million litres of milk a year!  Their own herd of 55 cows produces a lot of milk but they also  have to get milk from neighbouring farms so that they will have enough for all those products.

We observed the Glenilen workers making cheesecake and little pots of fruit yogurts.  Then we got to make our own.  We poured stewed fruit into the bottom of little jars and topped it up with creamy yogurt,  To add the final touches, we stuck on a barcode on the base and the Glenilen label!  After viewing the milking parlour and the rest of the farm, we enjoyed our little yoghrts with our picnic!

Before we left, we got to try out the fun milking machine in the picnic area!  Many thanks to Valerie of Glenilen for being such a fantastic guide on the day!

Then it was on to Skibbereen Sports Centre, where we tried out the gymnastics air track and played parachute games.  Before we left we helped to push the air out of the air track by rolling from one end to the other!

A great day was had by all!IMG_4972 IMG_4973 IMG_4974 IMG_4975 IMG_4976 IMG_4977 IMG_4978 IMG_4980 IMG_4981 IMG_4983 IMG_4986 IMG_4987 IMG_4988 IMG_4990 IMG_4991 IMG_4992 IMG_4993 IMG_4994 IMG_4995 IMG_4996 IMG_4997 IMG_4999 IMG_5001 IMG_5002 IMG_5003 IMG_5005 IMG_5006 IMG_5007 IMG_5008 IMG_5009 IMG_5010 IMG_5011 IMG_5012 IMG_5013 IMG_5014 IMG_5015 IMG_5016 IMG_5017 IMG_5018 IMG_5019 IMG_5020 IMG_5021 IMG_5022 IMG_5023 IMG_5024 IMG_5025 IMG_5026 IMG_5027 IMG_5028 IMG_5029 IMG_5030 IMG_5031 IMG_5032
