Edible Playground

Hitherfield Edible Playground

We are so lucky to have an Edible Playground at Hitherfield. We are proud of being a Lambeth Food Flagship School and all of the children are involved in using the Edible Playground to learn about how to plant and look after fruit and vegetable crops. As they do this, they learn a lot about gardening and ways to keep the soil as well as the plants and produce healthy. 

Teachers also use the area to explore elements of the mathematics, science and geography curriculum; giving these aspects of learning an added relevance for the children!

Parents can find out about the things that children will learn by looking at the ‘outdoor learning’ section of the curriculum overviews each term.
