KS1 and KS2
Led by our experienced guides, our educational activities are tailor-made to suit the needs of both KS1 and KS2 and will cover particular topics that they may be covering at school.
KS1 children (ages 5-7) will learn the basics and fundamentals of the topic and KS2 children (ages 8-11) will develop a more in depth understanding of the topic with discussion and interaction with the children.
Our topics are created with the help of FACE – Farming and Countryside Education, who are a national charity based in Warwickshire which aims to help young people learn more about food and farming in a sustainable countryside.
There are packs available to teachers that contain basic worksheets geared towards each topic which you can request at the time of booking, if required.
Teachers can choose ONE of the following 6 dedicated topics which, depending on the length of your visit, is then combined with shows and adventure play.
Caring for Animals
In this educational topic the children learn about the 5 basic things that all animals need whether farm animals or pets at home. This is combined with feeding the animals and visiting guinea pig village.
A farm isn’t just for animals, we also have many different crops and our very own vegetable patch where the children can learn all about what we have growing. They also get the opportunity to each plant something that they can take home (or back to school).
All animals are different and they have had to adapt to living in a variety of different habitats. In this topic we help the children to see some of these amazing adaptations.
Bugs and Beasties
Children can explore in a safe environment about all our natural wildlife and learn ways that you can help protect it when at home or at school.
The Chicken and The Egg
The group learn about the changes our animals go through as they grow from young to adult. We have many different animals all in different stages of development.
Our Farming Year
Learn in a fun and interactive way about where our food is produced before arriving at our supermarkets. You will explore the farm seeking out where we get our fruits, vegetables and meats from.
