Seeds Sewn with Local School

Three reception classes from Begbrook Primary came to the Sims Hill to learn more about seeds as part of their topic on food last term.

Children explored the site, tasted (and mostly loved!) winter salad leaves, dissected seeds and got to grips with their different parts, before planting a variety of vegetable seeds to take away to grow in a new productive plot in their school grounds.

The sun shone, children were really excited and engaged and a local parent helper said, ‘It was a great trip! I can’t believe so much goes on behind the gates and we never knew before. It’s good for the children to see it and learn where their food comes from. Thank you!’.
