“we have 200 kits to give away during September”
Grow your own salads in the classroom
Primary schools across the country are being encouraged to sign up for a new Grow Your Own Salads initiative. Teachers can apply for free salad kits and download eight pupil friendly worksheets, salad growing instructions and an interactive whiteboard activity. All resources contribute to different areas of the curriculum throughout the UK. This year we have 200 kits to give away during September, designed to be grown on the classroom during the autumn term. Claire Theobald, Senior Education Officer, British Nutrition Foundation says "Providing children with the opportunity to grow their own food is a great way to engage them in learning about where there food comes from".
