Our Topic this term is

Let's grow! A crispy carrot, a luscious lettuce or a tasty tomato. Dig deep and put your back into it, making your own tubs and planters and nurturing your greens.

Harvest your cops and make soups and dishes of seasonal foods that taste delicious. Learn about farms and where food comes from, writing reports on world wide produce.

Discover which allotments are closest to your school, and open the door to the secret garden.

Then establish your own farmers' market, harvesting your crops and selling local produce. Include garden crafts and work out your prices, be sure to make a profit not a loss!

After all that hard work have your fingers gone green?
