From Garden to Plate: Growing vegetables in P4/5

12th Feb 2018

Today in Primary 4 and 5 we explored how fruit and vegetables are planted, what they need to to grow and how they are harvested in preparation for eating. This is part of our topical learning on Food and how it gets from the farm to the table. The pupils put their planting skills to the test and planted some broad beans and onions. Everyone discussed the importance of sunlight, soil, water and air for all types of plants in order for them to be healthy and grow successfully. The boys and girls are going to keep a diary to record how their vegetables change each week. We can't wait until they are fully grown to eat!!!
