About 170 children and 20 adults enjoyed a wonderful Christmas lunch cooked by Mrs Raven. The school had grown all of the vegetables at the allotment and they were delicious!
Today we met children and their families at the allotment to harvest the vegetables for our school Christmas lunch. We had already lifted and stored the maincrop potatoes in the autumn. We picked sprouts, leeks and parsnips to take back to school. Some of the parsnips were ENORMOUS!! We also harvested some celeriac and Jerusalem artichokes to sell.
A group of six children went to the allotment today to plant three 16 year old grape vines, which had been grown in the vineyard at Ickworth and needed a new home. We hope to be harvesting our own grapes next year!
We had a large number of adults eating with us today as Elm class held their first Friends and Family Lunch.
Beech class invited friends and family to a special lunch today.
