Bleasby Church of England Primary School pupils celebrate as part of British Food Fortnight
Children at a primary school have been finding out about where some of their food comes from as part of a celebration of British Food Fortnight.
Bleasby Church of England Primary School pupils have been learning about food production and different types of farming.
They were visited by Will and Lauren Clark, who live nearby.
Will works for agricultural machinery manufacturers Claas, and took along a tractor to the playground. Lauren helps food growers and sellers promote their products, and took bread to explain how it was made.
Teacher Ysabelle Beaumont said: “We have been learning about the importance of sourcing our ingredients as locally as possible and are working hard to produce a school recipe book with our favourite British dishes in.
“We had a fantastic and educational visit from a Claas tractor. We were taught about how wheat is grown and harvested using the machinery they design and manufacture.
“It gave us a great insight into farm to fork and modern farming.”
Ysabelle said it was the first time the school had got involved in British Food Fortnight, but that they planned to make it more of an event next year by having their own food fair.
