Ready, Steady Grow

This project teaches children about food and farming and explores themes, including where food comes from, what plants and animals need to grow and survive and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.

We have really enjoyed this topic and have learned a great deal about animals and where our food comes from. We have enjoyed lots of texts related to our topic including, 'Rosie's Walk,' 'Handa's Surprise,' Jack and the Beanstalk, 'On the Farm,' and others. We have planted and grown our own bean stalk but we haven't found a castle at the top yet! We have learned about baby animals and how they change. Using the artist, 'Arcimboldo' we have made our own fruit and vegetable portraits. We have learned all about healthy lifestyles and completed the topic by designing, making and eating our own healthy salad. We loved eating it!
