KIDS at Brinsley Primary School made giant fruit and vegetables as part of a special homework project.

Children made giant strawberries, water melons, broccoli and peppers to put in their pretend allotment in school.

Foundation manager Emily Howard said: “They loved it. Although I think the parents may have enjoyed it more then the kids!”

The toddlers, aged three to five, made them out of all sorts of materials ranging from newspaper, papier mache, fake grass, and even bread crates covered with brown paper.

The allotment in the classroom is there to teach the children about healthy eating, where foods come from and growing your own produce.
