a sheep

Who said that London is all hooting taxis and rumbling buses?! Jackie Dalton finds out about a very different side to London, where pigs, sheep and donkeys roam freely.

We explore some animal-related vocabulary on the way.

Download the programme script and an mp3 version at the bottom of this page.

Try to answer these questions as you listen:
1: For how long has the farm existed?
2: Why was it set up?
3: What are some of the animals at the farm?
4: What else can you do at the farm?
