On your farm trip we can offer many enrichment activities that will bring your classroom topic to life. We can see strong links in particular with the farm environment and your KS1 and KS2 science curriculum. Your pupils will be able to explore and develop curiosity in a real life context! We will work with you to help children develop their scientific understanding, and a good understanding of the natural world in an exciting and engaging way.

If you are looking for farm visits that support specific longitudinal studies, below is a potential plan your school could follow taking the recurring topics 'Plants' and 'Animals' as a visual focus of progressive learning throughout KS1 and KS2. You can book successive visits across year groups so that children build on knowledge from previous visits.

Classification of animals - including insect hunt and pond dipping
Plants and Pollination -go on a life cycle hunt, observe agents of pollination and interactive talk with Beekeeper
Classification of animals extending classification knowledge on kingdoms/ phylum/ class/ order/ genus/ species. Games classifying
