British Food fortnight

The children have been learning about where our food comes from during British food fortnight. We have talked about the sheep and pigs on the estate being turned into food as well as watching the combine harvester collect the wheat earlier in the year.

Billy, the chef from the estate, came to visit with his milling machine to show the children how to turn wheat into flour. The flour had been combined by Farmer Jake and his team. The children enjoyed scooping the grain into the mill and watching it come out as flour. 

When the flour was milled we used it to make biscuits so we could taste the whole grain flour we hade made.
