Lovaton Farm Trip (thanks to Scarlett W!)
Year 5 had a super day out at Lovaton Farm on Monday. Discovering the many ways that Jane's farm is sustainable was perfect for our topic of Energy and Sustainability. We enjoyed walking around the farm and finding out how areas of field are allowed to grow wild to encourage insects and how herbal leys will help the soil and pollinators. We enjoyed sampling some of their delicious apple juice and saw the orchards where the apples grow. In the afternoon, we were set the challenge of trying to come up with some imaginative ways that wool could be used so that farmers get a fairer price for the wool.
Thank you so much again to Lovaton Farm, Leaf Education and to Scarlett W for winning us the day out!
