We are certainly not complaining about the hot weather but it can mean we are all feeling tired by 2pm. Staff have been supporting the children in thinking of new, tasty and, of course healthy snacks and drinks to keep us awake!
At Rachel Keeling we always consult with children, listening the their ideas, noticing their interests and trying to build upon them. Groups of children have explored and researched snacks online and using books, as well as their own ideas. Children developed skills using one handed tools such as graters, sharp knives, juicers, garlic presses and other utensils to create a range of very popular, refreshing snacks. Tzatziki, hummus and beetroot hummus were shared as well as some drinks using mint, grown and harvested by the children in our garden. Refreshing mint and lime water as well as cucumber ice cubes ensured we could carry on learning and feeling cool all day long!
