Food For Life

As a school we are taking part in the Food For Life bronze award. Below is a link to the website where you can explore how the school will be supporting your children in the core ethos of healthy eating, sustainability and growing food.

Our whole school herb and salad project:

Each class has chosen a herb or salad leaf to grow with the children. The children will be actively involved in caring for the produce in preparation for our Christmas food fayre. These children are growing basil and coriander leaves. We want to be able to use these in our cooking at school but also for continued growing and consumption in the children’s homes.

 

The children in nursery have also been using the apples grown from our very apple trees to make a tasty apple and plum chutney which you will also have the chance to sample at the Christmas fayre:

We have also made a link with Middleport allotment. We have been allocated a plot which we will be able to grow our own produce and use back in school for consumption. The food nutrition group will be the first to visit and help out in the allotment learning about growth and sustainability.

They will visit on Wednesday 21st November.

 

We welcome the parents to come along to our special “Parent lunch days” see dates below:
