As part of our continued St David’s Day celebrations, we are enjoying a cultural feast this week with Welsh author workshops, harp playing, traditional food tasting and our spectacular Eisteddfod competition!
Food tasting was very popular on Tuesday afternoon. In groups, the pupils moved around classes sampling delicacies and traditional fare from all over Wales.
The children enjoyed Welsh rarebit, cooked by Mr Kerr. Miss Brown rustled up some faggots which went down very well. There wasn’t a faggot to be bought in Brecon after she cleaned out the local supplies!
Mrs Lewis treated children to a range of Welsh cheeses and Mrs Gardner raised a few eyebrows (and noses) with laverbread and cockles. Finally, Miss Hallinan tempted the children with bara brith, Welsh cakes and local apple juice.
Afterwards, the children were invited to give feedback by thinking of an adjective starting with the letter of the food they tasted. They recorded ‘loathsome laverbread’, ‘cracking cockles’ and ‘fantastic faggots’! All in all a very successful day, rounded off with some pancakes as it was also Shrove Tuesday! St Nicks’ pupils certainly have big appetites!
