Horticulturist Visit

Mr Baldwin, a horticulturist from APS Group - the UK's leading supplier of British tomatoes - visited Year 5 and Year 6 to explain how science is used to ensure maximum crops of tomatoes are harvested. It was fascinating to learn about the needs of the plants and how these are monitored and regulated to ensure lots of fruit are produced. The children were excited to see the magnified bugs that are used to keep the plants healthy and to hear the buzz from the bumble bees needed for pollination.
