This year Year 5 are taking part in the Food Discovery Project. We will be growing food, cooking it and eating it. We will even have a playground farmer’s market, a harvest feast and a trip to the farm!
This time we made cous cous salad and then tried some different tropical fruit. Some of us had never tried some of these foods before so it took a bit of persuading to try it, but we were so proud of each other for trying something brand new! 5M will be making it next week.
First Cooking Session
5C had their first cooking session. They chopped, stirred and made vegetable lasagnes! They took them home to share with their families along with a recipe card to try and make it again. 5M will be cooking after Christmas, we look forward to seeing what they make!
First Growing Session
We had our first growing session and only one before Christmas. We cleared the beds of weeds, got the, ready for planting and planted a few vegetables that would grow in the winter such as, garlic, broad beans, onions and rocket. We even made some creepy crawly friends along the way!
We started off the project finding out what we knew about vegetables so far.
