Farmer Duck's day off

In this lesson pupils will learn what a farmer needs to do to meet the needs of farm animals. It is based on the popular story Farmer Duck written by Martin Waddell. Pupils act out a study based on what would happen on Farmer Duck's day off - the farmer needs to do everything to ensure that the farm animals are happy and healthy. To prepare for this lesson, pupils could make their own farm animal masks.
