Week 11th and 18th May – Learning about the Farm


For the next two weeks we will be exploring farming and farm animals. 


Sadly we are not able to visit the farm this year; however, we are very lucky to live in a rural area so farm animals are around us as we travel.   Last week one of the Ducks found a sheep in a field whilst out on a walk! Have you seen any farm animals whilst out exercising?  I know there are pigs, cows, horses and chickens in the village and if you listen carefully there is a rooster calling out at points!


Below is a list of simple challenges linked to the farm.  Have fun and don’t forget to share on Tapestry what you have found, completed or investigated.


  • Paint a farm animal or a farm picture.
  • Draw a farm scene or colour a farm pictures (link below)
  • Cut and stick baby animals to their parent (link below – baby animals)
  • Use the puppets from your starting school story sack to tell a story.
  • Sing as many farm songs as you can; there are lots!
  • Play farmers in his den with your toys or family.
  • Make a farm out of toys – build barns, tractors, pens etc.

Week 3rd May to 8th May  - VE Day 75th Anniversary Celebrations


This week we have created a learning pack linked to VE Day Anniversary Celebrations.  Within the pack there are: flag and bunting templates, colouring sheets, a design a medal activity, a pin wheel craft and a hat making challenge. 


We have also included a Stay at home street party poster.  The plan is for homes to be decorated in red, white and blue and for streets to come together to celebrate from their front gardens.
