Roots to Food - Cooking and Nutrition Education
The whole school (EYFS - Year 6) worked with Jules and Ffion from Finding the Will to learn about Shakespeare's Macbeth. The whole school put on a performance for parents, carers and friends at the end of the week. We built this into our school curriculum and were able to practise our drama skills, speaking and listening, English, art and design and much more!
Here's a quote from Jules about her week here at Barkston & Syston CE Primary School:
"Sometimes - not often - you walk into a school and feel immediately at home. Every single member of staff smiles at you and wants to have a conversation and the conversation is easy. We've never met before but we are able to converse with ease. Then we meet the children and see the staff working with them. There is a visible connection between the head teacher and staff and the staff and pupils. The nurturing, encouraging, warmth and care shown is reflected in the lovely, rounded young people that are emerging from Barkston and Syston Primary School. It has been our immense pleasure and privilege to work with them all from Reception right through to Year 6 and so we've seen, first hand, how brilliant this school is. Parents with children at this school are extremely fortunate and, to be invited in to work here, so are we."
