Fifteen Norwich School pupils in L5 and M5 helped at the Food and Farming Discovery Trust inaugural event 'The Science of Farming', which took place at the Norfolk Showground on the 13th March. Norwich School pupils were schools guides for the day, helping eight Norfolk school groups of Year 5 pupils get the most from the day.
Year 5 pupils took part in a series of 40-minute interactive lessons designed to explain the process of food production, focusing on the science and computing objectives in the national curriculum.
Coinciding with British Science Week, the new educational event for Year 5 pupils was run by the Food and Farming Discovery Trust, which is supported by industry organisations including the Royal Norfolk Agricultural Association (RNAA).
Eight Norfolk schools took part in the inaugural event: Aldborough Primary, Ashill Primary, Clenchwarton Primary, Eaton Hall Specialist Academy, Gayton Primary, Rollesby Primary, Trowse Primary, and Valley Primary Academy.
