Fruit harvesting calendar

This activity supports learners to make a fruit calendar to show the season when fruit is grown and harvested in the UK. It can support discussion around why different fruits grow at different times of the year, and whether this affects what fruits we eat and what fruits we can buy at the supermarket.
