Schools Paddock to Plate ES1


school visit

Learning about ‘Living things’ really comes alive when Kindifarm visits! Our sessions meet Science and Technology outcomes and indicators for Es1 and S1. A fun and safe introduction to farm animals, our school sessions address the Paddock to Plate , and Growing and Changing units of study. Learning links to KLA outcomes for HSIE, Science and English. Early Stage 1 farm activity ideas can be found here.
Each 60 minute session provides 9 different interactive farm activities:

  • Introduction to farm animals as students hand feed the animals. Students learn the name of the parent and child of each species.
  • Bottle-feeding our baby calf . Learn where milk comes from, and what additional products cows provide.
  • Bottle feeding baby lambs and goats.
  • Students sit to hold baby chicks, discuss where chicks come from, and what products chickens provide.
  • Hold rabbits and learn why rabbits have long ears, and why rabbits would be on a farm.
  • Pat a ducks, learn why ducks have webbed feet.
  • Feed and pat the piglet. Students learn why pigs roll in the mud, and what purpose pigs have on a farm.
  • A brief sheep shearing demonstration where the children hold some freshly shorn wool, and discuss the different products sheep give us.
  • Finally we finish with a bang, when our farmer does a stock whip cracking demonstration to show the children how we muster sheep and cows with the sound of a stock whip.

“We invited Kindifarm to our school and thoroughly enjoyed the visit and learning experience offered to our children. The two farmers have been great! They have shared knowledge with our children at appropriate levels and the range of animals is fabulous. The way our grounds are left after the visit is a credit to the farmers. I would openly recommend Kindifarm to anyone wishing for this kind of experience. Kindifarm is affordable to our families. Ideally we would love to take them to a ‘real’ farm but the cost of this is out of reach for our families.” Janet Howard, Fennell Bay Public School

All the children and teachers enjoyed the Kindifarm visit and drew some wonderful pictures of their favorite animals, talking and talking about the funny noises, smells and sights they had witnessed.They also felt very brave, especially around that giant duck!
There were so many animals you certainly covered everyones wishes. The boys particularly liked the cheeky goat and the girls loved the soft bunnies and the piglet. We found farmer John helpful, informative and loved his crowd control and especially the wonderful clean up! We are just left with happy memories and lots more to talk. Thank you for providing such a wonderful experience to our lovely new kindies. Marianne, Narraweena Public School

“We like the variety of animals provided by Kindifarm and the opportunity for the children to feed them. The farmers speak at the right level for our students.” Blacktown West Public School

The Kindifarm team were great! Efficient and easy to deal with and Tiffany was a great instructor and demonstrator.
She adapted the content to students with disabilities and catered for a wide range of abilities in a calm and professional manner. Oher staff commented on the excellent learning opportunity that Tiffany provided and I highly recommend KindiFarm.

The children absolutely loved their time with the animals. The Kindifarm staff were so friendly and helpful and flexible when needed. The children enjoyed watching the sheep shearing and the whip cracking too! And not to mention they loved the glitter tattoos! Thanks so much, we will definitely use Kindifarm again!

I can't speak highly enough of Veronica and the wonderful animals that came to visit us. The highlight was how hands on the experience was. The children just loved handling all the animals but in particular being able to lead the goats around the yard on a leash! From set up to pack down it was a great experience and our yard was left lovely and clean.
Thanks

We found Kindifarm to be a wonderful resource. Farmer Veronica came on time, she set up quickly and was very informative and professional in her approach. She then packed up efficiently. Kindergarten really enjoyed the hands on experience.

The children had a fantastic time! i would recommend this activity, especially for children who don't have animals at home. It was great to see their reactions to feeding and holding the different animals.

Tiffany came today and the students had so much fun feeding and handling the animals. It was effectively hands on and the information given was very relevant to KIndy students.

A massive thank you to James as he had a tough job with nearly 40 children all mixed aged. It was the first time for some of them, seeing farm animals. Thanks for creating such an amazing memory for our kiddies.
