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.
On Monday 10th February, year 4 visited Hastings Mosque as part of our RE learning for this term about Islam. The Imam made us very welcome and talked to us about Ramadan and what Muslims do during the month. He also answered our questions about the Qur’an and the ways that Muslims pray.
As we were leaving, we were given a set of English translated Qur’ans to keep in school and a very interesting book about the life of Muhammad, which is used by the Muslim children who attend Sunday School at the Mosque.
