Let’s Go to the Farm is a very visual activity, 100% in English, and perfect for preschoolers and first cycle students.
A clueless farmer lives with four animals on a magical farm where some amazing things take place:
- an empty box is mysteriously filled with carrots
- a duck on wheels makes children laugh when looking for food in the middle of the audience
- a piece of rope becomes a cow that gives infinite milk
- and much more!
We will also laugh with a little rabbit who is eager to eat carrots. Thanks to a very special lamb, we will even learn to sing Mary Had a Little Lamb.
Both language and actions in Let’s Go to the Farm have been carefully studied so that the activity is intelligible for all students, even those who are just beginning to study English.

It is an extraordinary, fantastic learning proposition, especially considering that kindergarten students have a fairly basic level of knowledge of English. Both the attitude and the theater play itself is well studied and prepared, and above all it is a quality experience. The little ones have been totally hooked on history and in many times, even in times of health crisis, they have been able to participate and have been involved in the play.
