We had a fabulous day with Kindifarm. The girls were so excited about the opportunity to interact and 'get to know' the animals and they really engaged with their observational drawing tasks. Becky and Noeline were incredibly helpful and patient. They were also very generous in their time with the girls, giving them great prompts to improve their drawings. Thank you, Kindifarm for a brilliant day - we'll see you again next year!
