Kids to Farms had a busy week in June, visiting 3 schools across the state!
On Tuesday 15th June the Kids to Farms team along with Charlotte Groves headed to Sydney to visit Knox Preparatory School and Wahroonga Preparatory School. Charlotte is a member of the Young Farmers Council at NSW Farmers and has always been passionate about educating students about where their food and fibre comes from.
We spoke to Year 1 at Knox Preparatory about what life is like on a farm, before making a (virtual) cake using ingredients from a farm. Just down the road we spoke to Year 4 at Wahroonga Prep about what plants and animals need to survive on a farm, and some of the technologies that are used in Australian agriculture.
On Thursday 17th June we travelled to Blayney to visit St Josephs Catholic School where we spoke to all the students about different aspects of agriculture. K-2 became “Sheep Superstars” for the day and helped feed some poddy lambs, Years 3-4 learnt about life cycles and planted some corn to grow in their own classrooms, and Years 5-6 were agronomists for the day, performing 2 soil experiments with soil from their own school garden!
