Topic

We are continuing with our focus on food produced in Scotland next week and would like, if possible, every pupil to bring a small vegetable (that can be grown in Scotland) to school on Tuesday 6 June.  We will be making soup using the vegetables and plan to let everyone taste the finished product.  We will assume that it is OK for everyone to taste the soup unless we hear otherwise (or, of course, if anyone has allergies that are known to us).  We plan to use oil to soften the onions and will only be adding the vegetables, water and some seasoning (we will not be using a stock cube or adding any lentils or milk).

Topic

We have been learning all about Katie Morag and life on a Scottish island.  When you are out and about at a local shop or a supermarket, pick at least three different items of food and discuss where each item came from and whether it would be possible to produce a similar item in Scotland.  Could the item be produced on a Scottish island?

 

Requests for pots and packaging!

Our Katie Morag topic will be taking on a food focus over the next week or two.  Pupils were interested to find out about how food would get to the island and talked about how islanders might have to grow their own.

With this in mind, it would be helpful if you could help your child to have a look around your kitchen and then bring in two pieces of packaging; one from food produced in Scotland and one piece of packaging from food produced elsewhere.

Our other request is for each child to bring in a small plastic plant pot so that we can have a go at growing our own!  This should be labelled so that your child can take their own plant and pot home once we have seen the results of our planting.  This can be an old pot – we are not expecting parents to go out and buy these (a plastic cup with holes in the bottom would do).

It would be great if you could send in the pot and the packaging by Monday 15 May.

Many thanks for your support.
