Alban Day

The school hall was awash with blue and yellow during our weekly ‘Proud Assembly’ today. The children were asked to wear blue and yellow and bring a £1.00 donation to support the education centre at the museum. We are looking forward to using the museum when it opens and learning more about the city we live in. The event corresponded with ‘Alban Day’ and Miss Poole talked about this in assembly. There is an Alban Pilgrimage in town on Saturday which starts at 11.00am which is part of the Alban...

School Puddings

This morning Year 2 School Council met with Mrs Banahan to talk about how the pudding trial has worked at lunchtimes.

Mrs Rimmer shared lots of notes from the Feelings Box; children have been writing about which fruits they have tried and other things they like about lunchtimes including: pasta, Lunchtime Helpers, Play Leaders and helping younger children with their trays and coats. Everyone at the meeting agreed that having one option of either cake, biscuit, hot pudding, jelly or mousse a day was enough and that multiple options shouldn’t be available on the same day. This matches the outcomes of the parent questionnaire and it was agreed in the meeting that the trial will now become a permanent arrangement. We are always looking for ways to improve and Mrs Banahan asked the children if there was anything else they thought could be better. Sid said it would be nice to have some more rice instead of potatoes and Tomasz said it would be good if the pear could be cut up to make it a bit easier to eat. Mrs Banahan is thinking about these things. Mrs Banahan attended the local cooks meeting and has been learning about Herts Catering’s commitment to healthy eating and providing a balanced menu. New menus will be sent home before Easter and Mrs Rimmer and Mrs Banahan will review these to ensure they are in line with our expectations about puddings. Thank you to School Council and...
