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
As part of our Term 3 learning on WW2 and the Holocaust, Year 6 studied the artist Henri Matisse. The children’s Holocaust response collages were in the style of his work. Here are a few of their pieces:
This Year 6 children have been making vegetable empanadas and guacamole which links in with their learning adventure from last term – Rainforests.
This was the final group of Funky Foods for this round to cook empanadas, they went down really well! They were rated 5 out of 5 by many of the children, even those who have never tried anything like this before.
A huge well done to our amazing year 6 pupils and staff who completed the Eastbourne pier to Hastings pier walk on Saturday 18th January. The children showed true determination and resilience to complete the walk and raise as much money as possible for Sierra Leone. We are incredibly proud and want to share the photos of the wonderful day we had. Thank you to all staff and families for your support and sponsorship.
Please don’t forget to sponsor our amazing Year 6 students who have volunteered to walk from Eastbourne pier to Hastings pier (15 miles) to help raise money for Mr. Saunders and I to travel to Sierra Leone in February! We welcome families to support us by greeting us at the end of the walk at Hastings pier between 12.00 and 1.00pm Saturday 18th January.
