The Food Council met on Wednesday morning and planted some broad beans. We discussed different ways to eat them and thought that when they are ready to pick we could make them into a tasty dip or roast them for a healthy snack.Pop back on to the site in a couple of weeks to check their progress!
This week the children have been enjoying homegrown lettuce leaves from our Forest School garden at lunchtime.
As an Easter treat we had a campfire for our last meeting of the Spring term. We also welcomed our first parent member, Miss Natalie Yeoman to the Food Council. Despite the rain, we enjoyed toasted hot cross buns and kept warm by the fire. We reflected on the changes we have made in school and how we can make things even better in the Summer term. Happy Easter everyone!
The Food Council met today for some cheese tasting. Everyone made some cheese on toast and sampled a variety of cheese. There were some interesting flavours including, Hot and Spicy Cheddar, Oak Smoked Cheddar, Red Leicester and baked Camembert with french bread. The baked Camembert was a HUGE hit and they all said it was the best cheese they’d ever tasted.
All of a sudden we have had a flurry of excitement in the Bear’s Den!
Our tomato plants have started to make an appearance and our lettuce is getting bigger by the day. It won’t be long before our lettuce is ready to transplant to a bigger home so that it can really flourish.
Greg the cook is looking forward to being able to serve them for lunch.
The Food Council met for the first time today and have been set the task to complete a survey on children’s snack habits in school.
We look forward to receiving the results which will help us form the next steps of providing healthy snack options at breaktime.
