The Pines School
We are a special school in Birmingham. We have an allotment to grow our own food. We like cooking with the crops we grow. We wrote a poem.
Kevin and Katie, Chantenay, Jasper and Baby
Carrots are orange tasty and fun
Colin Cauliflower white and green
All grow well with a lot of sun.
Down the allotment we take our tools
Having fun growing our own food
Planting, watering, digging and picking
When we eat it we get in a good mood.
Roman the red radish is peppery to taste
He makes you very surprised when you eat it
Joined with Tommy Tomato and Percy Pea
And Larry Lettuce you just can’t beat it.
Patrick Potato is always good for a laugh
Daily carbs to help us think
Brian Brussel full of vitamins
Even if they make you stink.
Aaron the apple is always there
To help keep the doctor away
Braiden Banana always on your side
All our fruits are here to stay.
Every morning we eat
A healthy breakfast at school
To set us up for the day
And give us lots of fuel.
At dinner time we have a selection
Of healthy foods on our menu
Beatrice Bean, Sammy Squash
Rami Raisin all at our venue.
Every week we do Food Technology
To learn about staying strong
Giving our bodies the fuel it needs
To keep us from getting it wrong.
We’re happy to be healthy
Our school is the best
Cooking, exercising and playing
And finally lots of rest.
