Autumn days bring time for lots of nature play, seed planting, harvesting, cooking and eating.
Junior classes enjoyed making 'GROW YOUR OWN WINTER SOUP' on Tuesday. They harvested cauliflower, broccoli & leeks that they had planted in term 2. Chopping, mixing and colouring their soup bowls was take very seriously by them all and the final Soup was enjoyed by all, coming back for third helpings.
Middle class made scrambled eggs with cheese and spring onions, they had so much fun collecting their eggs from the coop and picking their produce. A few new tastes were experienced which was great to see.
Hopefully you can read the soup recipe in the photos otherwise you can find it in their Green Diaries.
Last day of term 2!
Have you noticed the vegi bed chocca block full of ready to harvest beetroots?! We thought a healthy chocolate beetroot muffin is the perfect way to get kids thinking outside the treat box! and it comes with a banana or strawberry smoothie! If you are a parent looking to help with the making of muffins or smoothies please get in touch with us, many hands make work light more fun!
Return order form by Tuesday 23rd please, so that we can get organised. If you are missing the order form for this day you can get a copy from the office or find it in the print page tab. This is a free food day and no money is required. You may make a donation on the day to help support more upcoming special food days. They are a great way for the students to get involved in fresh food growing & cooking.
This day would not be possible without the help of these super supporters!!!!!
