Foundation practised their grating and mixing skills whilst making their own veggie filo parcels. It was tricky to hold the carrots and courgettes with our fingers rather than in a fist grip when grating them. After that we mixed the grated veg with root mash, cream cheese and grated cheese and spooned the mixture into our filo pastry. We cooked them in the oven until they browned. They smelled delicious!
In Danube we have been learning how to make a simple, healthy egg salad. We successfully shelled and mashed hard boiled eggs. We then mixed our eggs with other healthy foods to make a delicious tasty treat which we enjoyed with some wholesome, seedy bread.
Art and healthy eating at the same time!Read More

Last week Year 1 went on a trip to the Great Yorkshire Show Ground in Harrogate to celebrate National Apple Day! We had a fantastic day and found out lots about apples! In our first workshop we used cooking skills such as, coring and mixing to make our own apple crumbles. During the second workshop we explored the orchard and tasted lots of different apples including, ‘Dog Snout’ and ‘Red Devil’ - yum! Lastly, we made our very own White Laith apple juice using an apple smasher and an apple press - it was hard work but we all enjoyed it!

Today was the first day of our ‘Supervised Tooth Brushing scheme’. All the children were excited to try out their new tooth brushes and most really enjoyed the mild mint fluoride toothpaste. We hope this scheme will support parents when brushing teeth at home and reduce the need for invasive action for tooth decay.
Top tips include:
Brush teeth twice a day, most importantly before bed.
Spit out toothpaste, don’t rinse.
Visit a dentist regularly.
Limit sugar in diet. Eat sugar as part of meals only.
We hope this will help our children have many years of clean teeth and healthy smiles!
