HARVEST LIVE - October 2021
To celebrate the harvest this year, Year 3 were invited to join a quest to collect a host of ingredients, learn all about them and the people responsible for producing them in a live lesson from the NFU.
During the quest, we took an online visit to an arable farm, dairy farm and cheesemaker to meet the people involved in producing the ingredients and learn all about them. It was very interesting to learn all about the processes involved in the journey from harvest to our plate. The children asked some super questions. We were also lucky enough to witness a baby calf being born live from the dairy farm. Totally unexpected but very special to see this young calf make it's entrance to the world! This lesson links to our Design Technology curriculum focusing on the following Learning Outcomes
- Understand and apply the principles of a healthy and varied diet.
- Prepare and cook a variety of predominantly savoury dishes using a range of cooking techniques.
- Understand seasonality and know where and how a variety of ingredients are grown, reared, caught and processed.
