Seed to Celebration Giveaway 2015

Seed to Celebration Giveaway 2015

In 2015 the What Happens Next Project gave away free learning resource called the Seed to Celebration Giveaway. It was for the Key Stage 2 teachers to every primary school in Bristol. The initiative was inspired by the Bristol 2015 European Green Capital.

The ‘Seed to Celebration Giveaway’ learning resources was designed to specifically help teachers to grow and cook food with their classes, and the resources contained:

  • 4 varieties of easy grow seeds (basil, rocket, beetroot and cress).
  • A 24 page A4 book containing step ­by ­step growing and cooking activities, with pictures.
  • 4 cheap and easy recipes that school children will love to make and eat.
  • Timings included so teachers know how to fit activities into the school day.
  • Incorporated learning outcomes for Maths, Science and English from the National Curriculum.
  • Health and safety assessment for each activity.
