Farm visits for primary school holiday clubs
Farm visits are a great opportunity for primary aged children to experience the countryside and life on the farm, being active and being on holiday! School holiday farm visits can be tailored for your club to help children enjoy the countryside and understand where food comes from, while providing happy memories, hands-on experiences and lots of fun activities.
If your school holiday club is targeting your pupils eligible for Free School Meals and can organise its own transport, then The Country Trust could help you with a free farm visit. We may even be able to help with your transport costs too.
Headfield Junior School, Dewsbury enjoyed a farm visit to White Quarry Farm, Tadcaster during the summer holidays. The mixed group of KS2 children had a fun day where they helped harvest vegetables and sweet peas in the vegetable garden and water the plants. They also enjoyed a guided walk with the farmer and explored the farm’s orchard.
Today was not what I expected, it honestly surpassed my vision of how it would be, so once again a big thank you for your time and support!
