Where does our food come from?

What did you learn about chickens and their eggs?

This week in Nursery we have been thinking about food and where it comes from. The children all knew that they had food that they could get from their houses or the shops, but they were not confident to talk about how the shops got the food. The highlight of the week was when we went to visit Riad and the chickens in Forest School. We found out all about the chickens and how to look after them and we were delighted to find some eggs in the chicken coup. Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be finding out about where other foods come from and tasting a variety of foods. We are also going to cook using some delicious recipes as we think about how food is prepared. For our Creative learning we looked at the artist Arcimboldo and how he used food to create pictures. The children have been experimenting using role play food to create their own pieces of art and these have been fantastic!
