Connect with the Countryside!

Connect with the Countryside

Year 6 spent an amazing day learning more about how we can connect to the countryside.  Travelling on a London bus was a great start to the day and, when we arrived at the showground in Ardingly there was so much to do! In the food and horticulture zone we were able to see the different stages of making cheese and were even able to try some of the cheddar cheese and goat’s cheese made by the dairy. Other highlights of the day were Mary being chased by a bird of prey and Shea trying to power a smoothie maker by pedalling a bike – the resulting strawberry smoothie was delicious! The whole day was a great way for us all to gain an understanding of how the food we eat gets to our table and how the traditional countryside activities are involved in the process too.
