Bring your class to visit Kensington Gardens’ hidden allotment space. Brimming with fruit and vegetables in spring and summer, students can see how a variety of flowering plants grow and what the plants need. The allotment chickens will be there to entertain them too!
Sessions cost £98+VAT for up to 30 children, last 90 minutes and are available to book on Friday afternoons, in the summer term and first half of autumn term.
Green Seedlings (KS1)
Bring your class to discover how the plants grow and what parts of them we eat. Each child will make a paper pot and plant a seed to take home or back to the classroom.
There’s space to run around in the meadow outside the allotment gate, where we’ll play a game helping us learn what plants need to grow. We’ll also collect leaves and seeds to make a picture.
Plant Hunters (KS2)
Hunt for the different parts of plants that we eat and where in the world they have come from. Act out the plant lifecycle on the meadow outside the allotment garden and collect leaves and seeds to make a picture of a flowering plant. Students may also have the opportunity to dissect a seed or examine the parts of a flower.
Students can hunt around the garden to find the different parts of plants we eat. Everyone will make a paper pot and plant a seed to take home or back to the classroom.
