I started the day at Farsley Farfield Primary School...

I had been invited by Loraine Lambert, the Learning Mentor at the school, to see their farm which has won loads of awards including a Civic Pride Award.

I started the visit with Peter Harris, the headteacher, who is a passionate advocate for ICT, the garden and the school. Peter talked to me about the work the team have been doing with the building, the grounds and his plans for the future. We visited the garden and had a brief tour around the school.
