Focus area: ‘How does farming in Kenya compare with farming in Shropshire, England?’
The children continue to develop their geographical awareness of Britain, Europe and the world. To maximise the links Oxon has with a school in Kenya the children compare farming in the UK with that in Kenya. They visit an organic farm in Shropshire to discover the differences between intensive and organic farming and identify any similarities and differences between farming in general in the UK and Kenya. The children also explore the impact of farming on the environment and debate issues such as cash crop farming, Fairtrade, organic farming and deforestation for meat consumption.
