Food growing resources for pupils aged 5 - 11

Growing food at school is a great activity for pupils of all ages! ​WWF’s dedicated Plant2Plate resources focuses on what can be done to produce and consume food in a sustainable way that is less harmful to our shared planet and healthier for us.

We've developed some fantastic curriculum linked resources and activities for pupils aged between 5 - 11 years. All the activities featured are linked to the National Curriculum and are designed to help introduce pupils to the issues of food and sustainability and encourages pupils to reflect on the active role that they can play in the global community.

Exploring the issues of food and our environment

Our Plant2Plate classroom resources provide pupils with the opportunity to explore the issues of food, climate change, waste and biodiversity; and the positive steps that they can take to eat in a way that is healthy for them and healthy for the planet.
