Our ‘ Harvest’ Farm to Fork tour at Tesco Monday October 2nd 2017

The children who attend our Monday morning session and their parents/carers all met at Tesco for our Harvest Farm to Fork Tour.  The children all listened really well in the classroom as Mel explained that we would be going into the shop to look for 6 items of fruit and vegetables displayed on the picture board.  We were also encouraged to look for items grown in the UK and not items from abroad.

We used our senses of sight,smell and touch to explore each item as we found them.

We then got into 4 groups and each group had to find different items from around the shop as Mel said we were going to be making something we would be able to take home with us. We had to collect porridge oats,bran flakes,cinnamon,raisins and sunflower seeds.

When we were back in the classroom we shared our ingredients between the 4 groups and we made some muesli which the children put in little pots and were encouraged to eat for their breakfast.

 

Our last task was to collect various vegetables to take back to playgroup to make our soup with. We filled our baskets with potatoes,carrots,parsnips,spinach,baby corn,cauliflower,onions,celery and broccoli to name but a few.

When back at playgroup we used peelers,choppers and knives to prepare the vegetables for our soup. We even used the pestle and mortar to grind some herbs. The soup had lots of spinach in it and it was a lovely colour green.

The children were able to try some at snack time.

Our walk to the Church Thursday September 28th 2017

The children who attend the Thursday afternoon session and their parents/carers walked to the church from Playgroup to take part in some Harvest/Autumn activities. When we arrived we sat down and listened to the Rev Caroline talk to us about harvest and that the food we had kindly donated would be given to the people in the village who are not so fortunate as ourselves.

Each child took it in turn to place an item of food onto the Harvest Table as we sang our harvest song.

The children then took part in different activities around the church. The children searched for matching leaves and also created a harvest crown using natural found objects.

We then went outside into the churchyard to look for conkers. There were conkers everywhere and we had to be careful that they didn’t fall onto our heads as the wind blew the trees.
