RESOURCES ON PIGS

Here we have a great selection of films for students of all ages and a Power Point for primary pupils about the welfare of pigs and the ways in which we farm them.

Primary age

Power Point

Our Power Point presentation is easy to use and looks at different pig behaviours and ways of farming pigs. It opens up discussion around these topics and the benefits of higher welfare farming. It is aimed at children aged 7-11 (KS2) but can be adapted for younger ones. The Power Point is designed to be interactive. Questions to ask the children come up throughout – stop to discuss these before you get the answers! You will probably think of some more things to discuss.
