School of the Week | Scoil Chormaic CNS, Dublin

Congratulations to our Incredible Edibles School of the Week Ms. Yeats’ first Class, Scoil Chormaic CNS, Dublin.

Ms. Yeates’ first class have been learning about the origin of food. They visited their local supermarkets and tracing the food back to its origins.

While the children were shopping with their parents, they identified the Irish foods. This included meat, potatoes, fruit, vegetables and herbs.

They learned about the importance of food labelling and the how traceability, quality, affordability and locality is important when choosing what we buy.

Ms Yeates’ class learned all about the Bord Bia quality assurance mark on foods and why this is also important as consumers.

They discussed where they did their shopping, what products they bought with the Bord Bia quality mark on them and how much they cost.

The children investigated where they came from and if they were in season. They enjoyed playing supermarket bingo and wrote about their supermarket visits.

having learned of its importance, the children gave themselves a well deserved Bord Bia quality mark!

Incredible Edibles Project

The children in the school sent in some examples of the work they did on the project and the results are amazing.

With Task Two well underway, and the children becoming much more familiar with where the food they eat comes from, they are all looking forward to the next task.

Task Three starts in March, with the seed and grow packs arriving to all of the schools around the country. This is one of the most exciting parts of the programme.
