A Year 5/6 class from Fordcombe CE Primary School visits an organic farm and study centre for a day, learning about food and farming.
Commonwork, in the heart of the picturesque Weald of Kent, boasts over 500 acres of land and an organic herd of 280 dairy cows. The class visits in order to find out more about organic principles of farming, and its relationship to healthy eating.
The pupils are taken on a tour of the dairy unit, as well as the small organic vegetable garden. They are encouraged to think more about their local environment, particularly with regard to recycling.
Over the course of the day they prepare and bake their own naan bread. In a literacy lesson back at school they apply themselves to writing the recipe.
