This term we have used our outdoor environment to enhance our topic of farming and also looking at plants and seasonal changes.
We have walked up to the Common to look for signs of Autumn. We also created a Sukkah up there to consolidate our RE topic this term.
Our class trip to Waltham Place Farm gave us an opportunity to see first hand how some of our food is grown and harvested. We also had a chance to sow our own seeds by hand.
We were lucky to be invited to a local garden to pick apples from the orchard there. A great opportunity to see first hand where this fruit grows and to consider the many different varieties.
We are surrounded by farm land and one day got to see the farmer ploughing the field and then planting seeds ready for next year's crop.
