We have had another fantastic trip to Tesco, for the Farm to fork trip. We had the opportunity to explore the store and got to try lots of foods at we discovered how food gets from the farm to our plates.

Thank you to Tesco who funded the trip and also donated some food items for our Global showcase event.

Big Cookathon – 28th April 2017.

Click here for the recipe

For the last 4 years, Tankersley have taken part in the Big Cookathon, where every child in school has the chance to bake, in the same afternoon. This year the whole school made healthy banana and raisin flapjack. We had lots of fun making the flapjack and renewed our love of baking! Thank you to everyone who helped support the event, by giving up their afternoon to help the children.

Here is the recipe if you want to have a go at home baking the flapjacks!

Easter service at Tankersley St Peter’s church

On Wednesday 5th April we all walked up to Tankersley St Peter’s Church to take part in the Easter service. Each class performed a song about the Easter story and the whole congregation sang hymns including There is a green hill far away, Servant King and We have a King who rides a donkey. We also listened to readings about the Palm Sunday, the Last Supper, Jesus washing his disciples’ feet and Good Friday. Canon Hale shared the story of Jesus’ resurrection and we all really enjoyed his address. The service ended with a very enthusiastic rendition of the song “Celebrate”. Well done to all and happy Easter!
