Breakfast and Banter is now into its second week. The children are enjoying their healthy breakfasts with a choice of locally sourced products. The opportunity to have some banter with others during activities and games is also great to see.
This term P1 have been learning about a healthy diet and so recently we made our own healthy snack! We learned the ‘claw’ and ‘bridge’ technique to chop, slice and shred a selection of vegetables. As you can see we enjoyed creating and eating the final product! Thank you to Mrs Houston from the High School for lending us the aprons and some chopping boards.
P1 have been learning about healthy eating this term and combined this with their French lessons. We discussed the importance of breakfast and learned lots of food items in French. We have been very keen following the visit of Madam Marolleau who just happened to bring some French fruit marmalade for us! Take a look at all the yummy food we ate!! Of course we had to ask for it in French!
We have been learning where some foods come from and which foods we should eat lots of to stay healthy.
“You should eat a lot of vegetables…but I love cake!” – Alivia
“Potatoes come from a potato plant. You need to dig them up. They are healthy.” – Amelie B
“Your teeth will fall out if you eat a lot of sweeties.” – Mollie
“Eggs are good. They come from chickens. You can eat chickens too! – Casey
“We can eat lots of oranges…just little ones!” – Dominic
P1 have been learning about healthy eating with Miss Yousaf, our student. We have been tasting various different fruits and even found some we hadn’t tried before! Next we learned how to carefully cut and chop some vegetables which we then made in to a delicious healthy snack. Now we are all very keen to help prepare snacks at home!
On Thursday 30th March P7 took part in three different workshops run by Seafood in Schools at Dalbeattie High School.
The children were given opportunities to taste different seafoods, to watch a cooking demonstration and to find out more about where our seafood comes from and how it is caught.
The children had a great day and many were surprised by how much they liked some of the seafoods they had never tasted before.
Thank you to Mrs Houston for organising this experience!
P1F have been learning about healthy eating and the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast. We have also been learning some vocabulary in our French work, of which some words were rather familiar! So we decided to join the learning and have a French breakfast in class. We practiced our vocabulary and then had to ask for the items we would like in French! Next we rated each item of food and decided we would love to go to France!!
Today we had Mrs Ross come and cook for us! She made some fantastic Japanese stir fry food with Udon noodles. We then had traditional Japanese pancakes with fresh fruit and cream. We loved it! We also tasted Wasabi peanuts and seaweed crackers which were very spicy!
We all had a great time and we would like to thank Mrs Ross for taking the time to cook for us, we thoroughly enjoyed it!
