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.

Brooke was so great with the children and the animals. She was very patient and very informative about how to be gentle holding and touching the animals. She also learnt all their names very quickly.This experience was very interactive and hands-on for the children, which kept them very engaged. It was great to see that the animals were very calm, happy and healthy. It was great that the some animals were wrapped as this made it easier for the children to hold and in turn allowed the children to develop their confidence.

Kindifarm came to visit our school yesterday. We had a wonderful time! Farmer Rochelle was so lovely and shared all her knowledge with the students. I have taken Kindergarten to the farm for years. Now that I have experienced Kindifarm I would say that this may be a better option for Kindergarten as they get a wonderful experience for half the cost and exhaustion. I would definitely recommend Kindifarm to other schools. Thank you again for a wonderful experience 🙂

The team at Kindifarm were quick in responding to questions and special requests. Farmer Jo was great, explaining the food and fibres that we get from different animals which consolidated our learning in the classroom. The students loved touching and feeding the animals and were very excited. The time is tight, so I would recommend having longer sessions if you can afford it. We had 1 hour per 30 students, which flew by. Other than that, I would recommend this service for lower primary students. Thanks Kindifarm!

It was a great experience for the students to see the animals up close and personal as many had not done so before. Unfortunately two classes ran out of time to see all the animals, however, Farmer Ava let the last class go over time to see them all. Farmer Ava was friendly with the students, however, the last few times they have visited there have been two staff members instead of one. The area used was not cleaned up properly and since the children usually sit right there, we had to fence off the area until we could get it cleaned.

Thank you for another year of fun with the animals. The children had a wonderful time and were able to consolidate their learning in class with the Kindifarm visit. Farmer Rob was well organised and was great with the children.

Thank you for a fantastic morning with the animals. Our students loved feeding, touching and being close to the animals. Our students have special needs and got so much sensory stimulation from the session. We would love to have you back! Thanks again!

Thank you so much for a wonderful farm experience. This is our third year having a Kindifarm visit to complement our Farm unit for our Kindergarten students and as usual the kids loved it. So much fun, hands-on learning. Teachers also love it because it is so easy to organise and so reliable. Thank you Kindifarm!

I would just like to say a big thank you to Farmer Monique for the the wonderful experience we had with Kindifarm. The kids all loved the animals and we were excited to learn fun new facts about all of them. I can’t speak highly enough about the whole encounter. I highly recommend Kindifarm to anyone who wants to have a real hands on experience with beautiful animals.
Thank you again

We had Kindy Farm at our OOSH and Long Day Care Service.
The children absolutely LOVED the experience and are still talking about it!
With a large number of children, it is brilliant to be able to have farm animals come to us and for the children to be able to interact with and share time with the animals.
We highly recommend it!
