Room 3

Thursday 29th October

Pasta is a dish that many of us take for granted. We pop into the store, pick up any old brand pasta and then use this to create our dishes. We then wonder why that dish was just ordinary. Well Room 3 have found out why. Room 3 has been learning how to create succulent, tender homemade pasta. This pasta makes the dish pop off the plate and dance in our mouths. The soft texture soaks up any delicious sauce that you add, in our case it was a kale pesto with broad beans. The vibrant green colour shines off the plate and screams yum!

Friday 16th October

The sun has been shining this term and the children in Room 3 have been extremely looking forward to their turn at Garden to Table. Some of the children have even started to discuss the different meals they would like to cook with Sarah in the kitchen. On Wednesday, half of Room 3 settled well into their set tasks and worked as a team to make delicious beetroot fritters with a mint yoghurt. They also prepared a cabbage and mint coleslaw. Delicious!!
The other students were busy in the garden learning how to correctly use a range of weather instruments. These included a thermometer, windmill, raingauge and a compass. If you get the opportunity, ask one of the students in Room 3 to explain how these weather instruments can be used.
What an exciting session they had and they cannot wait until their next one in week 3.  

Heavenly vegetable tart

It was vegetable heaven for room 3 this week, who harvested carrots and salsify (another root vegetable) from the garden and planted broad breans.

They also celebrated the start of autumn by creating a delicious roasted vegetable tart with courgettes, eggplant and tomatoes. . A tart so good that Harshiv pronounced it “the heaven of food”.

Celebrating Chinese New Year

Room 3 has been busy learning about Chinese New Year this term. We have learnt about some Chinese customs as well as how the new year is celebrated. What a lucky surprise it was when we arrived in the kitchen this week to discover that we were making steamed buns (yum!). These were seriously good and we had fun making them as well. In the garden we looked at how water evaporates at different speeds as well as how much moisture plants need to survive.

Room 3’s first week at Garden to Table

Excitement was in the air as Room 3 ventured off to Garden to Table for the first time this year. In the kitchen they created a fantastic seasonal salad, which the students said was the nicest they have ever had. In the garden they learnt about a seed’s nature cycle. In class we also looked at other cycles which occur in nature.

  1. The dumplings look delicious. I hope Room 3 enjoyed making and eating them. You can put so many different fillings in them!! Also with the hot and sunny weather, it would be interesting to know how much evaporation is taking place around different areas of the school. Good to know what Room 3 have been doing in Garden to Table.

  2. What a nice combination of vegetables to make into a tart. Roasting vegetables are always a delicious way to eat them at any time of the year. Well done Room 3.
