P567 have been learning all about sustainable food choices this term as well as developing their cooking skills. They have looked at food miles and created their own low food miles bramble jelly and rosehip jelly from foraged local produce. We also made harvest chutney from locally grown vegetables. After learning some key chopping skills, how to make bread and how to scale, gut and fillet a fish they chose and cooked healthy meals from around the world. During maths week Scotland they used measuring skills to create a range of cupcakes: bramble, rosehip, citrus, chocolate orange and bubble-gum flavour. Finally they chose to give a gift of the products they had made to the people in the community who helped during Covid.
Primary 1 and 2 had already collected and distributed food for the senior citizens in the village. On Tuesday we delivered the 6 gift bags we made up to say thank you to our local covid heroes. Each bag contained jars of the jellies and chutney and a selection of the cupcakes. P234 made lovely harvest loaves of bread to share as well. They delivered the bags to the Co-op, the Post Office, the Ferry, Local Carers, the Doctors surgery and the School. As a community school we feel it is important to support and say thank you to our wonderful community for supporting us!
