Collect a flower or a few leaves from your garden or whilst you’re out on a walk. I would love to see your sketching skills. Create a close up image of your flower or leaves. If you want you could also create leaf rubbings using wax crayons if you have them – if not, crayons work just as well.


Research how compost is made. Create a non-chronological report explaining the process and what you need to do in order to create your own compost. 


Research - bananas, grapefruits, melons, oranges, passion fruits, dragon fruits and grapes. Where do all of these fruits originate? How long does it take for them to arrive in the UK? Why do these fruits not grow in the UK?
