FARM VISITS FOR SCHOOLS
At Humblescough Farm we believe that children really benefit from getting outdoors, learning about the natural environment and spending a bit of wild-time. We also want to share our knowledge and love of farming. As a result we decided to offer educational visits for pre-school and primary age children. There are opportunities to look at sustainable farming, to learn about where our food comes from, investigate different habitats on the farm and to engage in forest farm activities in the woodland.
Farm visits are led by two experienced primary school teachers – Diana Cornthwaite and Laurie Seddon who is also a story teller and Forest School Practitioner.
Educational visits take place from mid-March to the end of September and have proved to be hugely popular. They can be arranged for a half day, or a full day, and are planned according to teacher requirements and curriculum needs. Risk assessments for all activities are provided.
During visits we include time in the woodlands where the children take part in activities such as story telling, helping to build a campfire, toasting marshmallows,playing woodland games and investigating the natural environment.
