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.

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.

We had Kindifarm come to our school and the kids absolutely loved it! The farmers were great and knew a lot about the animals. All of the kids learnt something new 🙂

Overall the experience was great. The children had a great time and loved the hands on experience and of course they loved the animals. After the event some of the children said that they would love to have this incursion again. The Kindi Farm staff was great too. They were very encouraging and engaging.

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

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.

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.
