Schools across England are using food as a way to improve their whole school experience - making lunchtimes a positive feature of the day and enriching classroom learning with farm visits and practical cooking and growing.

Today we visited Tescos, we didnt know what to expect,firt of all we went in the training room and Maureen told us to put a apron on and she gave us a hat to wear. Then we went to the fish counters and we tried to name some of the fish, after we named the fish we went back and Emma showed us how to fillet a fish.we got to hold the fishes body, Connie didn't like the smell of the fish. Next we went to the bakery, we found out what ingredients they used to make bread and we got to smell the yeast it smelt horrible Steve showed us how the machine molds the bread in to different shapes, after that we got to have a snack and a drink Tescos were really kind and gave us a bag with recipes and we got an individual baps each. All of 5J said they really enjoyed it .

It maybe the Easter holidays but we are busily planning a Food/ cooking Day for Friday 16th May where the whole school will be cooking for the day. We have outside cooking experts coming in to join in with the fun....watch this space for exciting updates!!!
Today our eggs and incubator arrived. The children in Reception are eagerly waiting for the chicks to appear!
We held our Farmers Market on the last day of school before the Easter holiday and it was a fantastic success!
Each year group had been given a set amount of money to budget and produce items to sell at the market. Reception made scones and cheese straws, Year 1 made chocolate truffles, florentines and fifteens and Year 2 made bottled herb oils. The Gardening Club sold sunflowers and herbs that they had planted.
There were several other stalls from local producers - Woodlands Organic Vegetables, Cote Hill Cheese, Andy Handford - butcher from Nettleham, Ribs and Bibs sauces, Special Edition Chocolates from Market Rasen, Happy Eggs.
The money raised will be used to plant up our Sensory Garden with lots of wonderful tactile plants for the children to explore.
The Food for Life Partnership is a network of schools and communities across England committed to transforming food culture. Together we are revolutionising school meals, reconnecting children and young people with where their food comes from, and inspiring families to grow and cook food.
