Trip to gazegill farm
On Wednesday 7th November, Year 5 were lucky enough to visit Gazegill Farm in Rimington.
This trip was directly linked to our learning about where our food comes from. This forms part of our current ' Food, Glorious Food' topic.
We were lead around the farm by Suzanne and Mark who showed us all the workings of a real life farm. We loved looking at the piglets, visiting the milking shed and walking the goats (Unicorn and Star).
Have a look at some of the photos from our fun day out:
COOKING SESSIONS WITH THE cOUNTRY TRUST
Year 5 have partnered up with the Country Trust to aid our learning about food this half term.
The wonderful Stacey has been coming into school and educating us all about food!
So far, we have cooked Vegetable Lasagne (and got to taste lots of different cheeses) and a Cheese and Onion Pie (where we got to taste a range of different breads as well). The children got to take the food home to cook for there tea.
On Friday 14th November (put the date in your diary!), we are running a Playground Farmers Market to try and make a profit from healthy foods. We are currently in the process of researching farmers markets and foods, Fairtrade food and food miles in preparation.
Have a look at some of the delicious creations we have made so far:
