Tuesday 5th June and Wednesday 6th June 2018
Countryside Days offers Key Stage 2 children the opportunity to experience all aspects of food, farming, the countryside and healthy living. The day will involve a variety of workshops and arena displays including rural crafts, birds of prey, farm animals, the legendary Sheep Show, pond dipping and many more. The event starts at 9.30am and ends at 2.30pm and includes 6 interactive sessions which will be timetabled for your group prior to the day. As this event is a major focus of the charitable activities undertaken by the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, there is no charge for schools attending.
In readiness for the event, we strongly recommend that you join us at a ‘Preparation for Countryside Days’ session on Tuesday 13th March 2018 from 1pm to 3pm. This is an opportunity for you to find out more about the event including the format of the day, Health and Safety and a tour of the site. You will be able to meet the organisers and ask any questions you may have. If you would like to attend please indicate this on the booking form.
Each year we include a number of competitions which in the past have included cheese judging and model competitions. The details of this year’s competitions will be sent to schools once your booking is confirmed.
