4GK on the Farm

Children feeding chickens at Farsley Farfield Farm.

 

Throughout the week at Farsley Farfield, children across the year groups are given opportunities to learn about all things farming thanks to the staff and the facilities at the school. This week, a group of children from 4GK worked in the farm classroom, the polytunnel and the chicken coop.

 

 

 

Children this week watered some hot pepper seeds, weeded a large container of leeks, potted some hot pepper plants, sifted compost, fed the chickens AND collected, washed and packaged eggs ready to be sold. Tremendous fun was had whilst  the children continued to develop their farming skills.

This week we spent time covering some beds in the Access Garden, ready for the winter. We also harvested some willow and stripped it of its leaves. Some of us ate more grapes!

Fabulous Harvest

Despite sending lots of harvest home already, and supplying events at the Children’s Centre throughout August, there was still a fantastic display at harvest Festival last week. Ms Howells reports that the KS2 children have been working so hard on the farm and this fabulous harvest is testament to their work. The pepper harvest was spectacular! Well done!

Farm Club 6th October 2014

Farm Club worked really hard on Monday clearing beds in the polytunnel (as it was raining). We had a ‘who can find the longest root?’ competition and snacked on some of the last french beans. We also enjoyed tasting some yellow tomatoes.  We discovered an interesting beetle, later identified as a green shield bug.

Brilliant additions to the farm

September 21, 2014 at 7:18 pm

We are delighted to welcome two hives onto the farm in a wonderful partnership with two of our parents – Nicole and Susan – who were looking for a site for their hobby.  The school benefits from the educational opportunities of having the hives on the grounds, whilst the farm will benefit – presumably – from improved rates of pollination. Susan and Nicole have already run a number of class-based sessions, including an observation hive, and the school is ‘buzzing’ with enthusiasm for our new additions. Brilliant.
