West Town Farm
We went to West Town Farm for a trip linking to our learning about food and farming.
We started the morning with a mystery object game where we had to match the food to the machine used to make it. We then went on a walk around the farm itself to forage some stinging nettles. On the way we noticed swallows, pheasants and cows. After lunch we split into groups and did three different activities. We cut shapes out of honeycomb to make a bee, prepared string beans with salt, oil and mint to cook on the fire and were garden detectives to spot the different ways that plants are grown. We finally finished by sitting around the campfire and tried nettle, mint and honey tea with the cooked broad beans. It was lots of fun!
