We have been working hard at school towards our Bronze Award in the ‘Food for Life’ scheme. This scheme is about ‘making good food the easy choice for everyone – making healthy, tasty and sustainable meals the norm for all to enjoy, reconnecting people with where their food comes from, teaching them how it’s grown and cooked, and championing the importance of well-sourced ingredients.

The work in our Grow Zone, along with all the fantastic cooking we do in school with Mrs Cochrane, along with out healthy school dinners, all contributed to us achieving this award, of which we are very proud.

WildlifeKate and Mrs Cochrane took some hard working year 6 pupils to the Award Ceremony which was held at Ryton Organic Gardens. We had to go up to collect our certificate…

After being awarded our Award, we had the chance to have lunch in the lovely gardens and to look around.

We also had the chance to take part in a range of activities. We ran one activity making dragonflies and little clay bees full of seeds. We also planted some seeds of our own.

We had a super day and really enjoyed the experience. We were proud to bring our award back to school to be hung in the entrance hall. We will now be working toward our Silver Award.
