My whole school had a picnic on our astroturf pitch today because lots of schools visited to take part in World Sports Day and inter school relays. We were told there were about 450 of us taking part and my relay team came 2nd and beat some P6 and P7 teams! I had to bring a pack lunch which Mum made but I stuck the Chrysanthemum flower on top and I ate it as well.
The lettuce in my cheese sandwich and the peas with the peppers are from my polytunnel and I sowed the seeds for them about 2 months ago. The shortbread was made by my grandpa and is a Scottish speciality but my brother thinks it is from Libya. I forgot to shake my yoghurt drink so I held the lid back on and did it gently so it didn't come flying out at me. I think I was the only person that had a flower to eat.

Because I had a packed lunch I have chosen another packed lunch from Oscar, aged 10, Blenheim, New Zealand (3 seconds!).
Here in New Zealand, we make our lunches at home and so it is always free. We take it to school in a lunch box everyday. Sometimes I make it myself or sometimes Mum and Dad make it for me. To me, this lunch is pretty normal, except for the meat (lamb chop, to be precise) sandwich and salad.
In this lunch I have an apple, salad with cucumber, carrot, lettuce and coriander, a rice cake with meat, kiwifruit, popcorn, raisins, dried apricots and energy balls (or so we call them) which have apricots, oats, nuts and seeds mixed in and coconut on the outside. At my old school, we had a nude food policy where we weren't allowed anything with wrappers. Here's my status:
Pieces of hair: NONE!
Type of Meal: Main'
Oscar's parents add,
' This might be free to Oscar but we are guessing that the total of the ingredients in this lunch might come to about $3NZ. P.S Oscar usually eats his lunch in two mouthfuls so he can quickly get outside to play football ;)
The nude food idea is so cool! I think that would be a real challenge for a class or school to try.
I am still smiling about our Mary's Meals total which is now over £108,000! Dad says please keep sending your pics in and if your class would like to guest blog get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
