Trip to CLAAS and Symonds Farm
As part of our Food Discovery course with Country Trust, we visited CLAAS and Symonds Farm near Bury St Edmunds. The very helpful staff at CLAAS taught us all about the different combine harvesters and tractors they sell and what jobs they do in a farmer's field. This was a fantastic opportunity for us to see how crops in much bigger fields than our vegetable patches are harvested. At Symonds Farm, we learnt how the methane that a cow produces can be turned into electricity and got to see the process happening. We had lots of fun on our trip and had opportunities to do maths and history activities too!
This half term (Autumn 2) we have been incredibly lucky to work with Sally from the Country Trust on a Food Discovery course. Sally has been visiting us each week and teaching us all about fruit and vegetables. We (parents too!) have been taking part in sessions such as fun food quizzes, harvesting and sowing crops in our school vegetable patch, learning to cook using these crops and also selling them on a playground market to try and make a profit. We have really enjoyed our time working with Sally and have even linked this learning to our other lessons such as maths and topic! We are really looking forward to our trip as part of the course to CLAAS and Symonds Farm!
Wicked Wildlife Homework
Our 'pick 'n' mix' homework for Autumn 1 was based on our Wicked Wildlife topic. We had a show and tell afternoon sharing all of our homework. This is just some of the fantastic work that Lark class produced.
Our topic this half term (Autumn 1) has been 'Wicked Wildlife'. We have been learning lots about wild animals including food chains and what their teeth look like (we even compared them to our own!). As well as all of this, we spent some time making wildlife art with Doves class. Can you identify some of the animals we created?
