'The Good Life'

Learning Experience

This half term’s Learning Experience is called ‘The Good Life’. The children have been set a challenge from Riverford Farm to grow their own plants and vegetables and to create a display board of their learning. This will be shared with you at our outcome on Thursday 18th July. The learning is mainly Science based, including gaining an understanding of what plants need to grow well, where vegetables come from and the need for a healthy and balanced diet. Our writing will focus on instructions/following and making a simple recipe. Each class will visit Riverford Farm to extend their learning (more details to follow).
