School Visits

At Ewe Close there is a learning opportunity around every corner.

The farming environment can provide a basis for practically every subject in the National Curriculum. We have identified topics in each of the Key Stages and identified ways in which these can be taught on the farm. Below are some examples of the school groups we have catered for...

Newton Rigg- 25th February 2008

14 students visited to look at genetic defects in sheep, learn about stock management and record keeping, and watch as our cows are checked for pregnancy.

Fairfield Infant School- 4th March 2008

A fun day was had by all when we visited the school. Sixty 5 & 6 year olds were shown how to spin, made their own flock of sheep, used a peg loom to weave a rug and were introduced to the star of the show, our pet lamb, Horace!

Cross Cannonby School- January 2009

3 classes of primary children visited the farm over 3 consecutive days during Great British Farmhouse Breakfast Week to learn a little bit more about where their food comes from.

Richmond Hill Primary School - 15th June 2010

39 pupils from this local school in Aspatria spent a day on the farm learning about the different things that humans and animals eat.
