The fields at the back of the school were harvested this week and so we went out to watch the combine harvester at work and to learn about the farmers’ work at this time of year. We talked about different crops and what the farmer’s wheat grain might be used for.
Back in school the children looked at Wheat and Barley plants. We took wheat grains and each had a turn trying to grind the seeds into flour between two stones. It was hard work!
