I won a competition in NG Kids for me and my class to visit a banana ripening centre with Bananagrams! We had a really fun day at FYFFES banana factory where we learnt lots of facts about bananas. Did you know that the word banana comes from the ancient Arabic for finger? I love playing Bananagrams, too - it's a really cool game!
