Where Does Our Food Come From?

Today, the children helped me to sort out my shopping bag!

When we need food, we usually nip to the shops and buy some. But today, we thought about where food comes from BEFORE it gets to the shops.

We put some hoops on the floor. Each hoop had a picture in it – a pig, a cow, some crops and a hen. We took turns to take some shopping from Mrs Jamieson’s bag, and decided where it came from.

Maybe you could talk about where food comes from next time you are out shopping together?

For story, we watched a little red hen ask some animals on the farm to help her plant wheat, grow wheat, bake bread and eat bread……….enjoy!

This term, we are joining with our Nursery Buddies to help them get ready for Primary 1. (If your child came to Yester Nursery, you will perhaps remember similar transition activities last year. These proved invaluable in helping your child prepare for and settle into Primary 1.) We are going to work together to learn outdoors in a mud kitchen! There will be plenty of photos, so make sure you keep checking the website. We will be heading down to the woods every Monday morning, so please send your child to school dressed for playing in mud! They can bring their school clothes in a NAMED bag, and change into them when we have finished slaistering!

In order to extend the Primary 1 learning, we will also be finding out about food, where it comes from, tasting and growing. Let’s hope we have lots of sunny days ahead…..

Welcome Back!
