Learn online and from home with 'Life at Tapnell Farm!'

We have created a fun and educational series of videos, photos and work sheets that you can use to keep your little one's minds active at home during the lock down.

Simply download these worksheets, or use them as a guide, and tune into our Facebook page on selected dates to watch our footage from the farm which includes the following.

Please note, all footage was either taken before the lock down or is provided by our keepers who are adhering to Government guidelines on safety and keeping distance.

Our Easter programme of activity can be found at the bottom of this page.
