Here's something for parents, grandparents, carers and teachers. We are all trying our best to educate, motivate and inspire our children while schools are closed. Different schools have different strategies and I am sure many of us are slightly overwhelmed by the online resources, but if you have a farming-mad child and need something other than YouTube to fill the time, why not try these great websites.
- From "Why are farmers so smelly?" to farming with robots, #LockdownLearning with partner NFU has some great videos and activities. Not just restricted to primary age - there are some informative and thought-provoking articles for older teens too.
- One of our favourites for the under 7s is Tractor Ted's Funzone Colouring, songs, family games and activities all for free.
- The Countryside Classroom Passport is a printable activity book for children to tick off as they complete. Sections include Food, Farming and The Natural Environment and points are collected along the way.
