Preschool children are fascinated to see the real life big farm machines in this 40 minute film introduced by their favourite farm cartoon, Tractor Ted.
Tractor Ted pays a visit to an enormous arable farm in East Anglia where he sees many of the biggest farm machines at work during harvest which sees Fastrac tractors and trailers running day and night to keep up with two enormous Claas combine harvesters as their grain tanks continually fill up. There isn’t enough room in the grain store for the wheat to be kept safely under cover so a new one is being built using all sorts of Top Gear type favourites such as excavators, diggers, cement mixers, loaders and a huge articulated hauler. In the meantime the grain is tipped out onto the yard. Lorries come and go taking the grain from the store and off to the millers. You can see why this film is a best seller!
Tractor Ted has lots of interaction with the children as he pops up on screen to narrate the real life action. He encourages them to listen, count, read and sing to the film and they pick up lots of great knowledge – and love it! An interesting insight into the collective farm storage at Camgrain Stores, suppliers of all Sainsburys UK only bread-making wheat. Accompanying 32 page photographic book also available.
