The year one pupils from Toftwood Infants School have learnt about the creation story and how Christians celebrate, as part of their Religious Education curriculum.

On Thursday, Mike Garrod visited the school from his farm in Garvestone and brought his tractor along, giving each child a chance to sit in the driving seat and learn about how the tractor is used during Harvest time.

Mr Garrod also showed them wheat that had been harvested from his field and answered questions about life as a farmer.

In other lessons the children have looked at vegetables that are harvested at this time of year and investigated where they were grown in the world.

The vegetables were donated by Tesco Dereham as part of their Community Champion work.
