After making potato scones we still had some potatoes from the St. Peter’s walled garden so what better way to use them than to make a lovely pot of soup.
Last week we trialed ‘self service’ snack. The children were very willing and eager to help with this service. The children get to choose their snack from pictures. All the helpers through the week worked very well together to ensure their ‘customers’ got what they asked for! The children also engaged in lots of conversation in Gàidhlig. Self service snack is a great way to promote fine motor skills, build relationships, and encourages the children to become more independent.
Part of our new menu choices involves the children making their own snack. This week, Alison kindly donated some potatoes from the garden in St Peter’s and we decide to make potato scones with them. The children enjoyed the process from mashing the potatoes to tasting the delicious final product!

It was a great learning experience for the children to be involved in the whole process of planting vegetable seeds, to looking after them and watching them grow and then to taste them in a delicious soup they made themselves.

Making fruit smoothies
Our ‘Stay and Play’ session was a huge hit with the children. One of our parents came in to make fruit smoothies with us to tie in with our topic ‘Healthy Eating and Keeping Fit’. They were delicious!
