In today’s meeting we were looking at things to add to the school meals. We were visited by Chris from the kitchen and 2 people from Chartwells. We have be changing the school recipes to add a food that is appropriate for our school community to eat.
We asked questions about the draft menus.
“I think you could make the meals fun, to encourage children to try food that they have not had before.”
RESPONSE: There is a 2 week menu with a selector menu, so they can include children’s ‘favourites’ if that’s what they want.
“Can we tell our class mate that we have done some changes in some sheets and that we are going to have new things to eat?”
“Do you have a break when you make the school meals?”
“What if someone doesn’t want their food?”
RESPONSE: Anyone is entitled to any of the 3 dishes on the menu.
“Could we have National Food Days?”
RESPONSE: We sort of do that, e.g. with Chinese and Indian days. With the new menu, there will be more tailored options for your school. We could fit in with what some classes are learning.
“When do you get a sandwich option?”
RESPONSE: Tuesday and Thursdays
“Could we have a box of suggestions in which you could ask for a specific dish?”
RESPONSE: There is a folder where you can vote for a dish. But not everyone knows about it!
“Could we have a cool box of something were we could save the food from today?”
RESPONSE: Cooked food in school cannot be carried over to the next day.
“There are quite a lots of yoghurts. Can there be something else like biscuits?”
RESPONSE: We have to offer yoghurt every day.
“Sometimes we quite for quite long and by the time we get to the front, the thing has run out (Like chocolate fudge cake).”
RESPONSE: We need to provide 2 hot dishes daily but you could report to Chris.
“There is too much cheese on the pizza.”
RESPONSE: Write it down in the green book for Chris.
“Can the summer bring more summery menus?”
RESPONSE: We are dropping custard in the new menu.

The day in the life of Colin
Have you ever wondered what your pet thinks? Well this blog will give you some idea of what they are doing and thinking.
The day in the life of Colin
7:00am- Colin wakes up.ahhhhh. That was a good dream was SLEEPING all day and then I ate some CHICKEN!!! Oh yeah now I remember. I FOGORT TO WAKE THE HUMANS UP. MAN, looking after these pets are difficult. Now I need to face the treacherous… stairs. Colin goes up stairs. “Wake up I’m hungry!!!” to us humans this is mere noise or meowing. Into lulu’s bedroom, come on get up!!! I’m waiting… oh, oh, oh now she looks at then rolls over. It’s just so happens she has to sleep on the high bed which I can’t get onto. If only she was on the bottom bed I would jump on her and wake her up!!! I do not want to admit it, but Captain Colin has failed, although… I can always go and shout at the little one. Colin goes to Mabel’s room. Come on I want that chewy stick!!! Oooh ohhh oohhh, mum is going downstairs, Time to follow her.colin follows mum downstairs shouting all the way down. “Colin you spilt your water again” Colin is partly deaf. It’s really weird, only their mouths move sometimes, it’s like they have a mute button.
7:30am-the rabbits are in.. It’s just so tempting Colin is trying not to bat them but is failing, his paw is edging closer to them. Don’t do it colin,oh but I have to its just soooo… Colin bats Boo Boo, he sits down again as if nothing has happened. Heehaaa, that was funny. “Colin” I didn’t do it. Lily did. Not fair why do I always get told off and not the rabb…”Lily, don’t do that” Colin walks over to his water bowl. I’m just having a drink… he drags it along the floor. “COLIN. DONT DO THAT YOU NAUGHTY BOY!!!” tick, I set the daddy one off, one point to me. He skips over to the door. Let me out. Come on thought I was the boss… wait, that’s because I am. Finally someone lets him out into the garden, he’s to scare to venture beyond the garden fence so he doesn’t. Down to the garage, ewe, something smells weird. I BET IT’S THAT PESKY BLACK CAT AGAIN, OH… I WILL GET HIM.colin pretends someone is chasing him so he runs back to the door. Let me in, quick they are catching up. Then he runs up the stairs. Oh yeah, loser, I may be old but I sure am faster than you. He races back down the stairs.oh no I’m missing breakfast. He jumps up onto the bench. Hello girls, Oooohhhh can I have some of those cornflakes. Mabel strokes his head. Oh yeah, that’s nice. Puuurrrr puuurrr. Time to go back to bed now.colin goes back to bed.
He sleeps for the rest of the day. And occasionally gets up for a drink, and that is Colins life (one day of it anyway.)
This week we will be baking meringues!
. 4 egg whites
. 115g of caster sugar
. 115g of icing sugar
. Big bowl (not plastic)
. Electric whisk
. Rubber Spatula
. Baking paper
. Sift METHOD:
- Preheat you oven to fan 100c/ conventional 110c/ gas ¼ (It depends on what sort of oven you have.) Line two baking trays with baking paper so the meringues don’t stick to the tray.
- Put your four egg whites into your bowl and beat them with
your electric whisk on medium speed. You know
when its done because it looks like a fluffy cloud and
forms stiff peaks when you lift the whisk up.
- Turn up the speed to fast and start adding your
caster sugar in with a tablespoon. Wait a few seconds before you add the next spoonful of caster sugar so the sugar can mix in-
to the mixture.
- Sift in 1/3 of the icing sugar. Every time you have sifted in the icing sugar fold and mix the mixture with your rubber spatula. Sift the next 1/3 in and so on until there is no icing sugar left.
- Now all you need to do is scoop the mixture onto the baking tray. Use a dessert spoon to do this so the meringue should be about the size of your fist. The meringues should hold their shape, if they don’t it means you didn’t whisk it up enough.
- Put them in the oven. If your oven is a fan oven put
them in for 1hour and a half. If you have a conventional
or gas oven put them in for an hour and a quarter.
My dog’s called Pip and to be very honest she is not the best trained and is definitely not that beautifully elegant but we love her. I would like to say that she always comes when I call her but I suppose sniffing lampposts and eating everything in sight is much more interesting.
It all started around January 2015. My dad had gone to collect Pip from Wales. She is a Shitzu and Bichon mix which are quite rare in the UK. My mum had warned me that she or he (we didn’t know yet) was likely to be very scared and we needed to be calm around it.
But she was proven wrong. When Pip did finally arrive she was as small as my hand and jumped around like crazy, excited to start a new life. All my friends came round as they’re as dog crazy as me!
Now for the facts: Doggy Equipment
Before you get a dog you need the right stuff (you can get all this from your local Pets At Home):
– A collar
– A harness (if a puppy)
– A lead
– Toys (chewy, soft or hard)
– A bed (the size depends on your dog)
– A bowl and special dog food
– Puppy toilet training pads (if they are a puppy)
– Training treats (puppy ones or normal)
And I think that’s it, now you can officially get a dog or puppy.
But remember it all comes down to one thing to ensure your puppy gets a great life- YOU MUST LOVE THEM!!!!
