Old Macdonald had a farm, e-i-e-i-o! Do cows drink milk? What are baby pigs called? It’s time to find out more about life on the farm and the animals that live there.
This half term, we’ll be visiting a local farm to take in the sights, sounds and smells. We’ll observe the different farm animals, crops and vehicles, and maybe even take a ride on a tractor!
In our literacy lessons, we’ll make predictions about stories and try out some farmyard rhymes. Outside once more, we’ll take it in turns to be sheepdogs, sheep and farmers. Can we herd all of our sheep into the pen? Getting creative, we’ll use coloured play dough and clay to create farmyard scenarios, and ‘paint’ farm animals using graphics software. Then, we’ll design and make delicious flavoured smoothies to sell in our very own farm shop!
We’ll write funny farmyard stories and compile a letter to send to the farm we visited, explaining what we’ve learned.
