Farmer Jack: Chapter 5

Age: Year 3, 4, 5 & 6

Duration: 60 minutes

Subject: Design & Tech. 

Theme: Food

Meet Farmer Jack! He’s got some fascinating stories to tell, all about growing and eating delicious fresh fruit and vegetables. In this video, Farmer Jack shows us how to make a super salad with an interesting twist…

As well as being a great standalone resource, the Farmer Jack films can be used to inspire different areas of learning.


After watching this video, why not encourage pupils to apply what they’ve learned? As Farmer Jack tells us, we should not waste food, it's bad for our planet.  We can do that by including lots of local, seasonal produce in our diet, but we can also try to use as much of every plant as possible to avoid waste!  Challenge your pupils to make a creative salad using every part of a plant, and including at least 1 ingredient they’ve never tried before.  This recipe is a great place to start developing children’s cooking skills.  Who knows, you might have the next Nadiya Hussain, Mary Berry or Jamie Oliver in your classroom!
