Farmer for a Day
Farmer Lee has gone on holiday and needs you to help him look after the animals left behind. He only needs you to look after the farm animals so you will need to use the clues to find out which belong on a farm and which do not. Farmer Lee will make you part of his farming team at World of Country Life and give you a certificate for being such fabulous farmers!
Key Stage 1
Learn what animals need to be healthy and stay alive. Farmer Lee wants to check that all the animals have what they need to survive. Find out about HAWF and look for similarities and differences between the animals’ needs at World of Country Life. Report back to Farmer Lee and let him know whether the animals have everything they need to be happy and healthy.
The fun-loving ferrets have hidden some of ‘Appy Angus’ treasure. Can you use the animal clues at each of the locations to find out where they are hidden? Use the features of the animals to work out what type of animal they are and learn about birds, mammals and insects along the way. Let Angus know where his treasure is and he will give you an Animal Detective certificate for your help.
Key Stage 2
