Year 5 visited the local Food Bank in January and it was such an eye opening and interesting trip.  We saw where the food that we had donated at Christmas is stored, how it is stored and how it is then distributed to people.  We even got to have a go at putting dates on some of the items!


It was such a great opportunity to see how this amazing organisation works and to see just how hard people work to help it run smoothly!

Our winners are:

1st - Olivia & Zara;

2nd - Archie;
