Term 3 - The Farm
Where does our food come from? This question is answered when the children learn about farms and the foods they produce. The children identify the characteristics and uses of common materials, the range of people and services who contribute to our health and safety. At Chesterfield Farm the children see, touch and feed a wide variety of farm animals, ride on a tractor pulled cart, milk a cow, watch sheep being rounded up by a sheepdog and shorn.
