Allotment

Today in year 5 (7th November) we started our new topic ‘Allotment’.  We will be learning about this until Christmas.

To start off the new topic, we looked on the Ipads, on the Tesco website. The task was to look at different fruit and veggies and find out where they come from.  We studied different climates and explored where specific fruit and vegetables grow. We realised that certain fruits grow in hotter countries as the climate is different. When doing so, we jotted them on a world map, working in teams.

We also discussed how ‘poly-tunnels’ are used here in the UK.

Everyone in year 5 is probably looking forward to learning more about this fascinating new topic!
