3AO Class Blog

11th October 2019
3AO have been looking into the world of work this week, visiting different places to see what jobs people do. This week we began our Reaseheath Animal Care course. We put on our overalls and wellies and took care of rabbits and guinea pigs by feeding them, changing the water and bedding; we also got to hold some of the animals, which was the best bit!
We have also been to visit a Blacksmith this week. Bill the Blacksmith showed us around the workshop and told us the names of some of the equipment. Then we hammered a piece of mild steel with a hammer on the anvil. It was very noisy, it was amazing to see the variety of different jobs a blacksmith can do. He had even made some swords and garden ornaments.
