Farm Animals



This resource is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or SEN pupils who are beginning of learning the names of a variety of farm animals. All of the images of the farm animals are real life high quality photographs. This resource could be used as a tool for teaching the names of the farm animals or it could be used as a form of assessment.

A set of picture cards with the name of each of the farm animals is included in the pack. These could be used to teach the names of the farm animals in advance of using the peg cards.

An image mat with the pictures and names of all of the fourteen farm animals is also included. This could be used by the pupil as a reference when completing the peg cards – it gives a form of reassurance to the pupil, so that they can check if they are unsure of their answer.

Cut up the sheets into fourteen separate cards and laminate the cards individually. Also cut out and laminate the picture cards and the image mat. Pupils should try to recognise the farm animal in the image on the left of the card and, if they are able to read, to match it to the word on the right of the card by using a clothes peg. Alternatively, the teacher/SNA/supporting adult could read the words to the pupil and ask them which word matches the image on the card.

This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can match the names of the farm animals. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.

We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what language topic we were currently working on.
