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

Kindifarm animals were so cute and the staff member was awesome. She dealt with the animals and children so well. We use Kindifarm for our Alphabet Day and will have them back next year.

The children really enjoyed the afternoon. Many of our children had never held a farm animal and really enjoyed it.
I think that two staff members would have been good to get through the face painting and to assist with the animals. Overall it was a great little day. Thank you.

Kindifarm was absolutely fantastic. The best educational experience we've ever had. I would recommend this to all students K-6 or older. It was an excellent rich activity for Literacy and Science Outcome 'Growing and Changing'. Being an incursion on a drizzly day meant we could still go ahead with the activity. Kindifarm was set up in our school hall and the hall was left cleaner than when they arrived. It was great value for money and an experience the students will always remember. Kindifarm staff were outstanding, excellent with the children, professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Thankyou Kindifarm.

I have used Kindifarm in almost every school holiday program that I have run over the past several years. It is by far one of the best educational and FUN experiences that children can take part in. It is a fantastic program for children who have experience with animals and it is also a great introduction to farm animals for children who have not had any experience with animals.

A great day for children and families alike - we will be using you again Kindifarm!

This is the first time we have used Kindifarm for our Vacation care Program and the kids had a great time playing with the animals. We would certainly recommend and use them again.

We recently had Pascal and the animals come to our holiday program. The kids loved holding the animals and feeding them. The face painting was a wonderful addition. Pascal could not have been more helpful and offered lots of options for activities to do with the kids. I was very impressed with the whole experience.

We recently had Farmer Pascale visit our Kindergarten classes. The students loved it! It was very hands on with all students able to pet, feed and hold a wide variety of animals including chicks, a cow, lambs, rabbits and a piglet! The photos and experience will be used for future lessons in our classroom. Thank you!
