Skype or FaceTime a farmer

We have an exciting opportunity to bring the world of farming, food and the environment directly into the classroom. Using FaceTime or Skype, a farmer can speak to a class while at work on their farm. FACE can link schools with farms, locally or across Wales and England.

We will start the project in early 2018, so do get in touch now to register your interest. If you’re a teacher, find out more here. If you’re a farmer, look here.

Visiting a dairy farm

FACE Cymru and the National Botanic Garden of Wales have a produced a resource to support a visit to a dairy farm. It suggests activities and discussions that might be carried out before, during or after a visit by Key Stages 2-4, and shows links to the Welsh Skills Framework and Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.
