Opposite is a sample of the plans for the initiative: Please click on the image to view a larger plan of the working farm soon to be here at Churnet View.
Students have been heavily involved in the planning of the school’s farm whilst using their maths and literacy skills. They were also given the opportunity to visit a local cattle market where sheep, cows and hens were up for auction to be bought by farmers. A video is also shown below of their experiences of visiting a working farm that is already established. This was to enable them to see for themselves the excitment of working with animals within the school curriculum.
