This week we were delighted to invite G's Fresh in for a visitor assembly...
On Wednesday 20th April 2002, we welcomed Rob Parker from G's in to talk to KS2 children about agriculture and farming in the local area. His talk was a perfect way for our children to retrieve and recall their knowledge from our Geography lessons last term on agriculture.
Our foundation curriculum has a strong focus on teaching vocabulary securely and our agriculture unit included words such as irrigation, erosion and yield.
The children posed the following questions: How do you improve your crop yields? Which type of crop has the biggest yield? Do you plant hedgerows to stop erosion? What kind of irrigation do you use?
Gs were kind enough to donate a seedling lettuce plant for each child to take home to grow themselves and we have planted some in our school grounds.
The children were fascinated by Mr Parkers assembly and we were all very impressed by the excellent questioning from our pupils.
