African Farmyard

‘Build an African Farmyard’ is a fundraising and learning resource that’s all about creating a fantastic wall display of an East African farm (it’s perfect for a Harvest topic, but also great all year round). We provide you with the information, ideas and illustrations of the elements on the farm to photocopy, colour in and add textiles to… and your class learn, have fun and raise money - simple!

A Fair Harvest

A Fair Harvest

Lessons from Africa

Even though there is enough food to go around, hunger and poverty still exist in the world. This resource explores what harvest can really mean to people through looking at global food distribution and equity. This resource includes classroom activities to get your students thinking about food distribution around the world and the factors that can influence a good or bad harvest.

Fruit and vegetable shapes with nutrition facts

Fruit and vegetable shapes with nutrition facts

Fruit and vegetable shapes

These shapes with food and nutrition facts are really useful when talking about fresh food and healthy eating in the UK, and in Africa. They can also be used alongside our Harvest materials or for displayed when coloured in. These foods can all be grown across East Africa and link well with several of our children's stories.
