Fernworthy’s topic has been ‘Producers, Predators, Prey’ and so visited Dartmoor Zoo to learn more about food chains and how living things are related in these.

Posted: 11 August 2019

Pupils from St Mary’s took part in a pilot for the new International Tree Foundation resources,  called ‘Tree Power 2: Healthy Food, People and Planet’ which involved learning about sustainable, forest friendly and healthy food production and consumption.  The project took an investigative approach to discussing questions such as:

  • Are there ways to reduce food waste?
