The UK lambing season is being brought to life via a series of online videos and resources aimed at children aged four to 11.

Charity LEAF Education has launched the online project which will share a weekly lambing video with children, sent directly from a farm in Yorkshire.

The initiative is tailored to the EYFS, key stage 1 and 2 and the pre-recorded video will cover parts of the science curriculum.

Content will include how farmers prepare for lambing including scanning, what happens during the birth of a lamb, how farmers care for young animals, how farmers look after sheep, including herding and feeding, and why farmers keep sheep, including what wool is used for and how it is sheared.

The EYFS and key stage 1 videos will focus more on science, including comparing sheep and lambs to other birds and mammals (i.e. how they eat, live and survive).
