Activity 09

Read the following text and answer the questions.

During the school vacation, I went on a trip with three of my friends to my
uncle's farm in Bandarawela. This is what I wrote in my diary about what we
saw on the farm.
It was a fine morning when we arrived in Round Hill Park. The surroundings of
the farm was beautiful. I took many photos with my new camera.
On arrival at the farm, we saw a herd of cattle grazing in the field. My uncle
came out to greet us and took all of us to the farm. There was a bunch of
ducks swimming in the stream which flows behind the farmhouse. We sat in the
garden and enjoyed a cup of tea.
There were different types of animals on the farm. We saw a brood of chicken
and a herd of goats in the backyard. There was a drove of pigs in the pigsty.

A kit of pigeons flew into the compound and we fed them. My uncle told us to
be careful as there was a beehive nearby. We saw a swarm of bees flying into
the beehive and we ran into the house for safety.
We had a wonderful lunch that had been prepared by my aunt. In the evening,
we returned to the hotel.
