Come and experience life on the Farm for a day!
The Hahndorf Farm Barn is a very popular destination for school visits. The students always enjoy the interaction with the baby animals and the "hands on" approach to learning about life on the farm. The barn and picnic areas are under cover so it's an ideal activity for schools - come rain or shine!
See our new excursion flyer ... click here and print to show other teachers at your school and come up with a few classes at the same time!
When your class visits the farm, a typical day goes something like this:
Now we have educational worksheets and activities aligned to either the SACSA, IB or new National Curriculum frameworks! Upon booking your excursion, teachers can download these activities to introduce the children to farm life and get them thinking before they visit about what happens on the farm, animal habitats, caring for animals, conservation, the lifecycle of different animals and much much more... Or use these worksheets as activities to reinforce learning once you're back in the classroom! You can even download a Risk Assessment to make your paperwork easier too!
Here's what one happy school had to say recently... "I would like to congratulate you on a most wonderful school visit programme that you have provided for our students. The teachers were impressed with the smooth running of the day and especially enjoyed the children's ability to interact with the animals. The units of work provided online link well with our 'Life Cycles' unit of inquiry that the students are currently engaged in, making a successful overall learning experience. Credit to you all. Many thanks." L. Greiger, Belair Schools.
