With the Farm Park currently closed and children away from school, isolating at home, the team at Tapnell Farm have created a new online resource – Life at Tapnell Farm – a 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, over the coming weeks.
‘Life at Tapnell Farm’ covers a range of topics which are posted daily at 10am on social media (Facebook and soon YouTube) – 6pm on Sundays for storytime. Resources include downloadable worksheets suitable for KS1 and up, which can be adapted by parents to use as they wish.
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 the farm park 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.”

PLEASE NOTE: The short film clips for the series were taken the week before the lock down and new film clips are being taken by our keepers, who are following Government guidelines on safety and keeping good distance.
