Caring for farm animals

This set of activities aims to provide EYFS children with opportunities to learn that many food and other products that we enjoy come from animals which are kept on farms. They will learn that farm animals, like other animals, have basic needs that must be met by the humans who care for them, but will also learn about the ways in which consumers can influence the health and welfare of these animals.
