Our Broadleigh Farm Trip
This week years 1, 2, 3 and 4 all visited Broadleigh Farm in Stoke Gabriel as part of our new 'Farm to Fork' topic starting this term. All four trips were a great success, we had beautiful blue skies although cold and muddy and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The children learned a great deal about the history of Broadleigh Farm and were able to taste the wonderful apple juice pressed on site. All the children were given the opportunity to question Richard, the farmer, in order to help understand and support their learning back in the classroom.
Our 'golden awards' are part of our new health and wellbeing awards to help promote and highlight our consistent healthy food messages and whole school approach to food education at Collaton. The 'golden plate award' encourages children to top up on their 5 a day by having a healthy balanced school lunch.
The 'golden lunchbox award' which supports the school food standards and our new packed lunch policy, children are rewarded for eating a balanced pack lunch.
The 'golden table award' is for those who are selected for their impeccable manners, for being a good role model and exemplary behaviour. Each term kitchen and lunchtime staff will highlight children who show these qualities in the dinner hall. Stickers on our golden board indicate how well each class is doing and at the end of term the class winners will receive a reward of 'golden time'.
Farm to Fork Parent Lunches
As part of our Farming Topic this term we will be inviting all parents on a rota basis, class by class to lunch with us each Wednesday to sample our delicious roast dinner. The cost for lunch will be £3.50 which will include coffee afterwards in the community room.
