Farmwise 2017

Pupils from Fernworthy and Burrator Classes enjoyed a ‘hands on’ visit to the Devon Farmwise event held at Westpoint Arena, as part of their Harvest focus this half term.

The children took part in a range of interactive activities which took place  in themed zones such as dairy, arable, environment, vegetables, sheep, fruit and seeds and pigs. The pupils were able to ask questions and find out a bit more about where their food comes from and the different types of farming that exist in Devon.
