Hop Picking in Kent


Our current Topic is Hop picking in Kent and we are exploring our local history here in Ashford. Children are learning all about hops, hop pickers, what it would be like as a hop picker and the processes and equipment involved.


On Tuesday 6th July children also visited the Kent Life Museum where they saw a real hop garden, oast house and hopper's huts. They also took part in an exciting workshop learning all about Hop Picking in Kent!
