The six schools in the East Riding - Limbe link are having an onion growing competition. We are all growing "Mammoth" onions and the winner will be the school that grows the largest and the heaviest onions.
We want to see if the onions grow better in England or in Cameroon.
A "Mammoth" onion currently holds the world record for the heaviest onion.
This photo was taken at Leven school on 25/4/12 and shows the first of our onion seedlings starting to grow.

We had our Harvest Festival at Leven today. The church was beautifully decorated and the children sang well. All the produce collected is being taken to the Dove House Hospice.
What does your school do at Harvest?

Cameroon visitors get a carnival welcome to Leven
LEVEN C of E PRIMARY School is one of three schools from the East Yorkshire region to establish links with three primary schools In the West African country of Cameroon and led to an exchange visit of teaching staff, with the head of Leven School, Andrew Dolman, joining two colleagues from the other linked UK schools and travelling to Cameroon in January.
'The hospitality they -received has now been reciprocated, with the UK schools recently hosting a visit by two Cameroon nationals Martha Nguea Lottin, the owner of a Cameroon primary School, and Fosso Mbile- Gabriel, head teacher of Ho-Ho Kings School.
Speaking of the initial visit to Cameroon Mr Dolman said: "Our visit to the Cameroon schools was something that had never been done before so the parents and pupils were uncertain if we would ever actually arrive, but when we did they gave us a fantastic welcome and looked after us really well. The school we are linked with is in a very deprived area and lacks many of the facilities we take for granted in our schools. It has a classroom and a blackboard but there was a desperate shortage of the basics of education such as books and writing materials."
Asked how he found Africa he said: "One of the big differences to get used to is that night falls so suddenly at 6.15 pm every day of the year. As for language differences we coped quite well but there are about 300 local languages!"
Mr. Dolman expla:ned how they donated a lap top to each of the three twinned schools and funded them with an internet connection as gifts from parents and pupils at Leven and the other two schools.
He said: "This has now "made for links between all the schools and has created many opporunities for learning about each other and making joint projects to which everyone can contribute. All the children are really enthusiastic about it."
The return visit by the Cameroon guests has just been completed and involved them spending a day at each of the UK schools and then a day discussing future plans and a brief tour of the East Yorks region.
Both guests expressed their delight at what they had seen.
Leven children put on a very special welcome with a Brazilian Carnival theme, including dressing in carnival costume.
Andrew added: "We have had a long term project of learning about Africa and its cultures in the school. What we sought to do was link it to how the slave trade between Africa and Brazil also spread African cultures to that country and then back again as modern travel meant that cultures were exchanged."
Among the preparations for the Carnival was an acclaimed lesson in drumming by renowned drummer Claudio Kron from `Drumming 4 Business.'
