Allotment

It took being on the waiting list for 7 years before we finally were given half an allotment space on the Underhill Road allotments!

Last year our Year 5 children all had the opportunity to work on the allotment and then cook something using food that we had grown. Recipes included broad beans  and feta cheese on toast, artichoke and carrot soup, pitta bread pizzas, potato and bean curry and raspberry muffins. Absolutely delicious ! The children really enjoyed working in the outdoors and getting a sense of the seasonality of different foods that we eat. They also learnt a lot about how seeds grow, what conditions they need and what happens when things don’t go according to plan !
