This is a great way of practical learning that is not an everyday learning tool – making it a memorable task.
The Kew Little Pigs experience has been adapted to provide opportunities for Foundation, Infant and Junior (Primary) school children, with links across the EYFS and Primary Curriculum. Although at present Kew Little Pigs education shows are targeted at EYFS, KS1 & 2, our services can be adapted to provide educational experiences for KS3 and above (please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more details). We can provide individual classroom visits for £199 per hour + VAT (30-35 children); this can be adapted to meet your schools individual needs (please contact us for specific requirements); including two half hour sessions (two average sized classes), or into an assembly visit for £299 + VAT (2+ classes, max. 128 children) and Q&A session.
Why Book Us?Kew Little Pigs focuses on animal enrichment for children, giving children stimulating opportunities they may never have at home to spend time with animals they may never usually have hands on experience with. This is a great feature for children with allergies and asthma, as pigs have hair instead of fur, making them hypoallergenic. Booking Kew Little Pigs is a cost-effective way of bringing children to meet farm animals and learn about them – as we bring everything to you! Our visits are fun for both children and staff! We have over 6 years’ experience going to schools and care facilities with our micro pigs. Our visits allow children to use their imagination and branch out from everyday school learning. We can focus on the 3 little pigs story, as many EYFS facilities do, as well as Spring time and the birth of new animals. We can also be booked for Scouts, Brownies and Guides to go towards their badges. We can also attend school fairs, leavers celebrations and school fun days as we can focus on learning through play. We have re-bookings from schools and nursery’s we have visited in the past three years.
Thank you for this morning’s visit. We really enjoyed it… the children did too. I think the fact that they could brush the piglet’s hair and walk them was excellent. The little talk at the beginning was a good educational bit for the children and generally the numbers reflected how popular the pigs were, so I don’t think anyone was disappointed. Will leave some flyers out some parents and carers were interested in seeing more of the pigs. We were asked if you could come again so that is positive feedback indeed. It may be a good one for future half terms and holidays.North Isleworth children’s centre
The children took great pleasure from the hands on experiences with real life micro pigs brought to us by Kew Little Pigs.Parkgate School, Clapham
I would like to write a huge thank you to Kew Little Pigs! As the Nursery Teacher at an inner-city London Primary School, I organised a three hour visit for several year groups and was delighted with the service provided. The booking process was efficient and KLP managed the day beautifully. The curriculum support was also fantastic and age appropriate for the Early Years and Year 1. On the day of the visit, the staff were friendly and very organised. The pigs, which were adorable, very clean and impeccably behaved, were readied in the school garden and the classes took turns to see them. The children were engaged throughout and the staff kept the children interested by giving appropriately pitched lessons to each year group. KLP also treated the pigs incredibly well and they seemed to really enjoy themselves. This certainly wasn’t slave labour!Overall, this was a really enjoyable day for the children and our teaching staff. I would definitely recommend KLP for schools or private events.Bell lane primary school, Hendon
Thank you so much for this information. We enjoyed your visit so much today and the children were still talking about it when I saw some of them at a schools music concert in Twickenham this evening! We really appreciate you giving up your time to come and see us, it was such a valuable learning experience for the children.Holy trinity primary school, Richmond
I just wanted to write to thank you for the excellent day you gave to our children on 23rd March. They simply loved the experience. I will certainly pass the word around and hope that we can have you back at some stage in the near future.Kew college, Kew
