The Food Project – With Morrisons

St Mary’s and Morrisons have come together to offer our Early Years families the opportunity to become involved in a half term Food/Cooking project. We will be sending out a weekly recipe (every Wednesday) for you to try at home, then on alternative Wednesdays we will also be providing the ingredients kindly donated by Morrisons, who will also be delivering cookery demonstrations for the children, encouraging then to become chef’s of the future. The idea being to support home learning through family activities you can enjoy making and then eating.


Everyone who shares their weekly cooking experiences on Tapestry will receive a raffle ticket for a prize draw at the end of the project,  when a family will win a food hamper to enjoy and the child the opportunity to become a chef for the day in Morrisons, creating pizzas or cup cakes in store! In school we will also be having a design the pizza competition, with the winning pizza being created by Morrisons for the class to enjoy!

Over the Christmas period St Mary’s and Morrisons will be hosting a design the cup cakes competition, with the winning design again being created by Morrisions for everyone to enjoy in the New Year.


What’s coming up?

  • Week 1 – Sweet potato chips (with a dip)
  • Week 2 – Pizza              (supported by Morrisons)
  • Week 3 – Pasta dish – Macaroni Cheese
  • Week 4 – Fruit Kebabs     (supported by Morrisons) 
  • Week 5 – Fruit Smoothie
  • Week 6 -Cookies / Cupcakes    (supported by Morrisons)


How do you get involved?

All you need to do is simply send in your pictures of your home cooking and maybe a review of the chef’s work through tapestry, for every completed week you will receive a raffle ticket for the hamper draw and chef day experience. The recipes will be sent weekly via Tapestry, but will also be shared on the school website and facebook page.

If we are able to make this a success, Morrisons and St Mary’s hope to be able to continue the project across the whole school in the Spring, so we can all enjoy a little cooking fun!

Year 1 & 2 Newsflash 🔈 We have had another busy week of learning in Miss Pearson’s class! In Maths, the children completed their weighing investigations by comparing the weight of items around our school. Next, we started to look at multiplication. In Year 1 the children were fantastic at finding and recalling doubles to 20 (and even beyond)! In Year 2, the children made equal groups of 2s, 5s and 10s and recorded “groups of” as repeated addition. Some of our super Mathematicians in Year 2 even began to use the multiplication symbol to represent “groups of”!As Scientists, we explored our sense of taste in an investigation. The children tasted different sweets that felt the same but were challenged not to use their sense of sight or smell. They made predictions about the flavour and explained why using descriptions. We were very surprised that using just one sense is difficult and concluded that using more than one sense helps us to make better predictions.In Art, the children created some Seaside collages. They recapped their Geographical learning and identified features of our local area. We watched a tourist information video about Berwick and made sketches of the things we liked. The children used these sketches to create drawings for their collages before selecting appropriate materials to create a collage with different textures. Well done everyone!We were very kindly loaned an “Ecology Box” from the Union Chain Bridge that contained some amazing resources to support our Science topic this half term. The children explored the bugs up close, made their own life cycles and shared stories with some exciting local settings! Thank you very much to the group for this wonderful opportunity! Miss Pearson and Miss Simpson have been blown away by the children this half term and how well they have settled in - not to mention the wonderful work they have been producing! We are so proud of everyone and hope you all have a lovely half term holiday! ... See MoreSee Less
