Food Facts

During our Food Facts lessons we  learn about different food:  where it comes from; what it is  made from;  what it looks like before its cooked;  and then children are encouraged to taste food in a taste challenge. We do this to  encourage children  to try new things and extend the foods they eat.

Last we tasted foods eaten during Divali celebrations. Children tasted Indian rice pudding, sweets, crackers biscuits and snacks.  They had a great time, and so did the staff. Almost everyone tried all the foods which was great. The crackers were a big hit in 2G,  2O got tucked into the rice pudding, and   2W tried them all twice as they had a Divali party at the end of the week! An enormous THANKYOU  goes to Dhillon’s family for donating all the food,  and especially to his mum and grandmas for preparing it for us all.

CAFT 2019 | Day 2: Back to the Art Room we go!

Today in the Art Room we enjoyed making self portraits using all natural materials that we collected ourselves from around the farm! The children were given cardboard containers by Miss Glennon before she led us on a hunt to find natural resources.

We created our portraits on a huge piece of black paper that we have brought with us back to school in order to show our friends!

CAFT 2019 | Day 2: Tiny George!

We met a farmer who told us an interesting story about a chicken named Big George and his grandfather Massive George! Then we met Big George’s newborn baby son… The children were given the opportunity to name him and went with Tiny George which he will now be forever known as!

Some of the children who were brave enough enjoyed having a photo with the chick they had just named!
