This term in Funky Foods the children have been looking at packaging and advertising. They have explored the different types of packing available and the impact this has on the environment and the KS2 children have looked at the tricks the media uses when selling us products.
Alongside this they have looked into where our food comes from and how it is grown. With Year 5 visiting the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant for vegetables and herbs.
Year 1 created some delicious Rainbow Fruit Kebabs and a still lemonade
Last week during Funky Foods the Year 5 children visited the Bohemia Walled Garden to plant some vegetables and herbs. We planted Onions, Asparagus, Garlic, Lettuce, Chives, Parsley and Mint. These are now growing alongside the Rhubarb, Rosemary, Strawberries and Beans.
They had great fun exploring the garden, digging up worms and trying to identify the various things growing there.
We hope to return later in the year to see how things are growing and possibly use them in some of our Funky Foods cooking lessons.
The Year 5’s are looking at life during the Tudor period. For Funky Foods we looked at the difference in diets between the very rich and the poor. The children explored the various meals that the Tudors cooked, and learnt about King Henry VIII and the 1000 meals made at Hampton Court Palace every single day.
They prepared and cooked a peasants meal of Vegetable Pottage made from seasonal vegetables, pearl barley and herbs. To go alongside this meal they made wholemeal bread rolls.
