Shropshire Council

EYFS programme

Our education sessions for Early Years children provide a gentle introduction to the farm based on a familiar song or story with lots of interaction with the animals and opportunities to introduce new vocabulary.

Workshops available

Three little pigs

Bring the story to life by visiting our pigs, snug in their brick-built sty, and all their farmyard friends. Then try making homes of straw, wood and bricks to see which material is best. Can the children construct a home so strong that even a wolf can’t blow it down?

Old MacDonald had a farm

A tour of the farm designed to heighten the senses while finding out how Old MacDonald looks after his animals. Children create a journey stick to help them recall their experiences and then make a big Old MacDonald scarecrow using recycled materials.

‘A wonderful experience for children and staff. The large education room was a perfect size for our lunch. The staff worked hard to ensure that although the weather was not good they still offered animal handling; holding chicks, getting to know Joe and Charlie the shire horses, and best of all cart rides with Dusty the donkey. Many thanks’ – Christchurch Pre-school
