Fun Field Trips for Schools

"...resources for schools..."

We have been fortunate at South Penquite Farm to receive funding from Natural England through their Aggregate Levy Sustainability Fund to host a series of teacher training events which have produced professional designed worksheets for use by local schools when making a field trip

These are available to download from this web page and whilst some are site specific, many may be of use in the classroom or for schools visiting other farms

They are in PDF format - please right click on the title or image below and select "Save Target As..."
