Sow, Grow and Farm

For our Spring Term topic, we will be engaging with the Geography based topic 'Sow, Grow and Farm'. This project teaches children about the features and characteristics of land use in agricultural regions across the world, including a detailed exploration of significant environmental areas. So, are you ready to 'dig deep' as we learn lots about allotments, farming methods across the UK and abroad and the best climates for growing the most luscious and juicy fruits and vegetables! This will of course be further reinforced by our companion, mini-topics to extend our knowledge across the curriculum. We will study Eat the Seasons, Human Reproduction and Ageing, Line, Light and Shadows and Nature's Art

To learn more about our topic, click on the Knowledge Organisers below. 

The pictures will enlarge, when you click on them yes.

Class Novel

Our linked class novel for our Sow, Grow and Farm topic is 'The Secret Garden'.



Follow Mary Lennox from India to Yorkshire, England, and watch her grow from an over-privileged girl who has never tied her own shoes, to a caring young woman. In her adventures, Mary meets a young man who can converse with animals, discovers and solves the hidden mystery of a secret garden, and helps her sick cousin to recover. Guided by a remarkable red robin, through her deeds and work she grows right along with this very special garden. For over a century, children, young adults, and adults of all ages have been touched by this masterpiece. With this Classics Made Easy edition, you can now follow Mary's adventures better than ever. The Secret Garden is a timeless classic, brought to the stage and film many times over the years, including the recently released movie of the same title, starring Colin Firth, Julie Walters, and Dixie Egerickx. This ' Classics Made Easy' edition gives you the whole story and everything you need to love it, as millions have over the ages.
