God Jul

Christmas Dinner
Today Hanne came in to tell us about Christmas and going ot school in Norway. We learned how to introduce ourselves and say 'Merry Christmas and Happy New Year' in Norwegian, as well as practising our counting to 10. Then it was time for Christmas dinner! Do you know that children in Norway don't have hot dinners at school but everyone takes a packed lunch with a sandwich? Today we were glad that we got hot school dinners!


  1. hi this is azlynn from New Zealand. do you have hot dinners at school? We dont we have sandwiches and fruit. I have fruitvines. You must be pretty lucky to have hot dinners - who makes them? What kind of food do you have for hot dinners.

    1. Hi Azlynn! Thank you for your comment. Yes we do have hot dinners at school. The menu is sent out every term and we can choose whether to have the hot meal or sandwiches. Everything is made in the school kitchen by the cooks. This week we had Monday: Sausage, Tatties, Baked Beans Carrot and Banana Muffins
      Tuesday: Shepherds Pie, Cabbage Saucy Chocolate Sponge
      Wednesday: Lasagne, Garlic Bread, Salad Shortbread and Pears
      Thursday: Roast Chicken, Stuffing, Roast Tatties, Carrots Jelly and Fruit
      Friday: Haddock in Batter, Chips, Peas Semolina and Peaches
      You can still bring a packed lunch if you prefer. We want to know what fruitvines are?

  2. That looks yummy, hope you all enjoyed your Christmas school dinner and the crackers! We are lucky in Orkney to be given a choice of hot or cold school lunches. Caroline(Laura's mum)
