The aims of horticulture at our school are so that all children:

  • Have opportunities to experience in a sensory way the variety that exists within a garden at all times of the year, as with season, weather, plants, soils, fragrance, touch, colour, sound, and taste.
  • To learn through practical lessons how to grow plants, fruit and vegetables and challenge the dislocation of the urban environment with understanding of how crops grow.
  • Learn the benefits of gardening through physical work and routines which are defined by season, not by curriculum.
  • To develop horticultural vocabulary as with plant part and tool identification.
  • To understand basic horticultural science (how and why  plants live and die or survive and thrive) and terms, (germination, photosynthesis, WALNUTS(water, air, light..
  • To work in a safe and secure environment where eco-friendly and web friendly  practice leads to independent working underpinned by knowledge evidence of why they are performing a task.

Learn to use, maintain and store personal protective equipment correctly.

  • Learn to use maintain and store a wide variety of tools across whole school.
  • Can taste the fruits of their labours by growing, maintaining and then harvesting fruit and vegetables grown organically  for use in food technology..
