Pupils at Moulsecoomb Primary School cooked up a storm at their annual Harvest Festival.

Thirty children from the school in Lewes Road, Brighton, prepared food grown in the school’s award-winning grounds for their parents. The South East in Bloom award winners boast orchards, vegetable gardens, and even chickens. The grounds also includes ponds, a fairytale forest and Iron Age roundhouses, providing for an outstanding classroom and learning resource.

On the menu was tasty Spanish tortilla made with the school’s potatoes, eggs and onions. Year 5 students also made apple and pear juice fresh from the school’s orchards, and homemade bread with jam made from fruit in Moulsecoomb Forest Garden. It is the school’s ninth year holding the festival, held in the school’s community room.

Parent governor Warren Carter said: “It is a fantastic way of teaching them about healthy food, by getting them to grow it, cook it and eat it.”
