We cater for one-off visits or more regular sessions and have already worked with a variety of local primary, secondary and SEN schools. A typical school session includes two tailored seasonal activities with optional prep and follow-up sessions.

 
All of our young people had a fantastic time and really enjoyed being outside, engaging with the animals and having new learning opportunities. I was especially pleased with the manner of Jackie the farmer and the way that she knew just as well as I, how to manage the young people and ensure that they were all able to access the activities in their own way.

What to expect:

 

The process

If you’re interested in bringing a group please get in contact via hundredriverfarm@gmail.com.

Teachers are invited to conduct a pre-visit and discuss preferred activities and outcomes. We will then create a tailored session or project plan with in-school prep and follow-up add ons available.

 

Activities

Our sessions can be tailored to suit any age group and aim to involve children and young people in the daily and seasonal changes of the countryside.

Our activities fall into the themes of habitat development, wildlife study, team-building, farm science, tours, gardening and environmental topics. For example: animal feeding, bug hunting, arts & crafts, pond dipping, bush craft, tree planting etc.

 

Outcomes

Whilst sessions are tailored to your desired learning outcomes, we aim to embrace younger children’s fascination with the natural world through exploring and creativity.

We hope this can help:

  • Increase physical activity and combat the long-term negative impact of childhood obesity and attention disorders.

  • Enable healthier lifestyle choices and increases awareness of the environmental implications of our diet.

  • Encourage social interactions and develop characteristics such as empathy, trust and resilience.
