Life at Tapnell Farm helping with home schooling for KS1

1 min read

With Tapnell Farm Park currently closed and children home from school, the team at the popular attraction have created a new online resource, Life at Tapnell Farm, a free, fun and educational series of videos, photos and worksheets that can be used by families to keep their children entertained and assist with home schooling.

Activities are being posted daily at 10am on social media (Facebook and Instagram) with video accompanied by downloadable worksheets suitable for Key Stage 1 and up. These can be adapted by parents to use as they wish. There is also a story session at 6pm on Sundays.

Tom Honeyman-Brown, owner of Tapnell Farm Park said: “We’re really missing our visitors! It feels strange not having them in the Farm Park! We know how much they love our animals and will miss not coming to see them. We also appreciate that parents can probably do with a bit of help in entertaining the children at home over coming weeks. That’s why we’ve introduced these daily doses of fun and educational content online, supported by downloadable resources; it’s our way of doing what we can to help families during these challenging times.”
