KS1 Geography: How our milk gets from the farm to the shop

Teacher Notes

After viewing the clip, the children could use model animals to create a bird’s eye view of the farm William Whiskerson visited.

Pupils could use a freeze-frame of the map shown in the clip to help them build up their model, cutting grassy meadows from green paper and ploughed fields from brown paper or corrugated card.

They could make hedges and trees from twigs. Remind pupils to model other features they have seen in the clip too, such as the cowsheds, a silage pit and a slurry lagoon.

The children could add buildings modelled from boxes and toy tractors, diggers, trucks and tankers to complete the landscape.

Finally, children could check the labelling on a pint of milk from a local supermarket to find out where it came from.
