LINCOLNSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY LAUNCH ARMCHAIR AGRICULTURE TO SUPPORT WITH HOME EDUCATION
In these challenging and unprecedented times, we hope, first of all, that you and your families are keeping well and staying safe.
To support families with home schooling, the Education team at the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society have launched a series of educational home learning activities and resources on the themes of food, farming and the natural environment.
All the learning activities are linked to the National Curriculum, are free, downloadable and provide unique and fun ideas to spark curiosity and inspiration, whilst also providing a little bit of light relief!
We are also busy producing weekly small achievable projects for the children to get inspired and enthused by, with different themes throughout the weeks, such as ‘Let’s get growing!’. We are running some fun competitions too, so why not have a go, with a chance to win a family ticket to Countryside Lincs, our fun-filled and interactive day all about food, farming and the countryside.
Follow us on twitter.com/LincsShowground, or check out facebook.com/LincolnshireShowground to be alerted to new activities and resources as they are released. We hope you enjoy our learning activities and would love to see any photographs and activities in action and hear how you have enjoyed getting involved. Please share your experiences using #ArmchairAgriculture.

The 270-acre Lincolnshire Showground is owned by the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society. The Society was formed in 1869 with the objectives begin: “the furtherance, welfare and progress of the Agricultural Industry and all professions, trades and crafts connected therewith”. Today, those objectives are more important than ever to us and since 2005 we have had the additional focus of sustainability and protection of our natural environment for the benefit of future generations.
