Year 2 to Barleylands

Year 2 went to Barleylands Farm to learn how plants are grown and then turned into food. They ground their own wheat and made a mini pizza. After lunch the children enjoyed feeding lots of animals.

“My favourite moment of visiting Barleylands was that we learnt how to grow wheat. Then a combine harvester gets all the seeds out of the ears of corn. You crush them to make flour. We used flour to make pizza dough. We used the traditional method of kneading- fold, fold, push, fold, fold, push and so on. The pizza was scrumptious!” Noah
