The farm is crammed with opportunities to explore using the five senses on Woolas Grange Farm. Create your own sensory trail using our lesson plan, recording templates and station ideas. A fantastic practical science lesson loved by learners.
From farm to fork, the perfect example of a food chain. Students from St Barnabas Primary explain the food chain of the day's school dinner. Put your new found food chain knowledge into action with paper chains, animal masks and a whizzy quiz.
It's all grow! Use this handy resource pack to watch three of our intrepid explorers visit a carrot farm to discover what plants need to grow. Then plant your own carrots and record their growth using our fantastic carrot diary.
