Tell us about your end of term celebrations!
29 June 2012 - The end of term is approaching fast and we want to hear how your school is celebrating another fantastic year’s work.
Perhaps you are visiting your link farm to see how the harvest is coming along, or planning your growing activities for next term. You could be celebrating a bumper crop of tomatoes by cooking up a storm in the kitchen, or by holding a Summer Fair or food event.
Staff, pupils and parents at St Joseph’s Specialist School and College in Surrey are doing just this by holding an Olympic themed Sports and Fun Day, for their school community. Everyone can enjoy a BBQ lunch, fashion show and sports races.
By holding an annual event with a food theme for parents and the wider community, you could use this as an opportunity to get them involved in cooking and growing activities, which also contributes to your Bronze award criteria*.
Whatever you are up to, it would be great if your school could share your stories with us. Please email us a few words and some photos if you can as we’d love to feature them on our website, Twitter or Facebook pages. Send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tips for the end of term:
- Is there a kind volunteer or two on hand during the holidays to water your growing areas and keep an eye on the chickens?
- Has a farm visit been booked for the autumn term?
- Ask your parents and teachers to freeze or preserve surplus fruit and veg from their gardens to use in cooking lessons in the coming year.
