Food for Thought

Kippen Primary received a ‘Food for Thought’ grant to buy kitchen equipment to allow us to cook some of the food we are growing. All classes have taken part in food education this year. We produced a Kippen Community Cookbook which is for sale at a cost of £5 (available from Rhubarb Lime over the Summer). Several workshops were organised over the year to engage the children including a RHET talk about eggs, soup making with some of our grandparents and food label designs. We also supported the annual Skinner’s sausage filling invention competition and also visited Tesco with the P1-3s. We will be developing our food education in future years through the curriculum planning process. The food industry is important in this area and may well provide employment opportunities for our pupils so we are keen to develop our young workforce even at an early age! The Stirling Observer captured a moment at the Street Fayre of Ailsa and Beth on our stand.
