In the Sow, Grow and Farm project, we will learn about allotments in the United Kingdom and how the government encouraged people to have them to support food rationing during the Second World War. We will learn about food webs and animal life cycles, including how living things are dependent on one another within a habitat. We will investigate the different ways that plants reproduce and will dissect flowering plants to identify the different structures. There will be opportunities to learn about farming in the United Kingdom and the techniques used in modern farming, including the challenges that farmers face. We will learn the benefits of eating seasonally and about the pros and cons of importing food and we will also learn about world farming and how the different climate zones affect where different foods can be grown.
