Woodmansterne Primary

Little Oaks Farm

Welcome to Little Oaks Farm, where we aim to offer a unique experience for the children at Woodmansterne, enriching both our curriculum, and extracurricular, offer for all children.

Nestled within our grounds is a purpose-built smallholding featuring stables, outdoor pens, and larger field areas dedicated to the animals we nurture. Alongside this, we have established a spacious allotment area complete with a poly-tunnel and raised beds, designed to complement our gardening and growing curriculum.

These incredible facilities provide every child in our school with the opportunity to engage in farming lessons, where they'll acquire a diverse range of skills essential for animal care. We believe that spending time with our animals is invaluable for supporting mental health and well-being. Our allotment area serves as a platform for honing gardening and growing skills, aligning with our broader commitment to sustainability.

The Vision

The Journey 

 

The building work is coming on at a pace, and as you can see below, the smallholding is starting to take shape. To launch the small holding project to the children, we were delighted to welcome some goats into school who joined us for an assembly all about Little Oaks Farm. We have already welcomed two new furry residents: Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny, our beloved rabbits.

We are launching a fantastic opportunity for our Woodmansterne families to be involved right at the start of this amazing project, which will add so much to the offer for all our children.

For £10 you can buy a a special farm plaque. You will need to decorate this yourself including your family or child's name. You can include the year or date if you wish or your child's current year group. We would love the decoration of your plaque to reflect 'Little Oaks Farm' or Woodmansterne School but you own the plaque so be creative and feel free to make it your own!

 

FAQs:

1. How do I buy a plaque?

Log into your Arbour Parent App and look under 'Accounts'. You will see 'Little Oaks Farm' has now appeared. Click on this to purchase a plaque or two.

2. Can I buy more than one plaque?

Yes, you can buy one for your family or one per child. Just adapt the amount you wish to spend, when you order a plaque on the app e.g. £10 for one, £20 for two plaques etc.

3. How do I receive my plaque?

Once you have paid for your plaque on Arbor, we will order in the plagues and then give this to your child to take home to decorate. Further instructions regarding how to decorate this and where to return it will be provided with your blank plaque.

4. Where will my plaque go once I have decorated it?

The plaques will be displayed in our Outdoor Classroom at the entrance to Little Oaks Farm.

We can't wait to see your finished creations and to welcome you all as you become a special part of our school farm!
