Sow Grow Farm
In the Sow, Grow and Farm project, your child will learn about allotments in the United Kingdom and how the government encouraged people to have them to support food rationing during the Second World War. They will learn about food webs and animal life cycles, including how living things are dependent on one another within a habitat. The children will be investigating the different ways that plants reproduce and dissecting flowering plants to identify the different structures. Additionally, there will be opportunities to learn about farming in the United Kingdom and the techniques used in modern farming, including the challenges that farmers face. Furthermore, the children will learn about the benefits of eating seasonally and about the pros and cons of importing food, as well as, how the different climate zones affect where different foods can be grown.
