Fishers Mobile Farm
We bring our farm to you!
We offer an exciting opportunity for children of all ages to experience farm life without leaving your school, nursery or playgroup grounds.
By introducing children to a range of farm animals in a safe, well organised environment we will provide an experience that motivates to produce quality work with links across the National Curriculum.
We are fully insured & a risk assessment form can be downloaded from our "School Resources" page on our wesite, www.mobilefarm.biz
We arrive at your school about 1 hour before our educational visit begins to set up our farm - all we need is access for our towing cars & trailers & enough room to set up our pens - about 20m x 20m - either grass or hard standing is OK - playground, sports field or even your staff car park would be suitable.
There usually will be 2 or 3 us from Fishers Mobile Farm, but would ask you to supply an appropiate number of teachers/adults for child supervision
You will need hand washing facilities or we can bring mobile sinks
We have gazebos to keep your children & our animals dry if rain or cool if sunny (!!). All our animals are securely enclosed in pens allowing children to get close to the animals in a safe & fun environment.
Our visits include:
Time for the children to wander among the pens, chat to us & meet our animals
Meeting the individual animals as a group activity: discussing breeds & their differences, what each animal eats, where each animals lives & where do they sleep, how our animals stay fit & healthy & answering any questions
We can tailor-make our visits to suit the topics you are covering at school - if you have any special requirements, please let us know
