‘From the orchard to the bottle experience’
Enjoyed by the teachers and pupils from Clearwell C of E Primary School, October 2017.
On a beautiful autumnal day in October, we welcomed the whole of Clearwell School to come and enjoy a morning of making pear juice. They learnt the entire process of how to make pear juice and they got to take home a sample at the end.
First they caught the train to our orchard which is home to many pear trees. Separated into small groups, one child was responsible for taking videos and pictures, while the others had to pick pears. Once we had enough, the train took them to the main station for the next step. This was to scrat the pears. Using a traditional scrat, each child loaded and scratted the pears into a large tub. This tub was then taken to the press.
Another group of children had a go at pressing the juice out of the pears. Next was to sieve and bottle the pressed juice to remove any lumps from the pears. The children then made their own labels for the bottles. Lastly each child got to take home a 500ml bottle to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Back at school they turned their outdoor experience into a beautifully presented piece of work.
This is a fantastic outdoor learning activity and teaches children where our food and drink comes from. We are more than happy to offer this experience to any school or group interested. Please contact us to discuss this further.
