Tasty Treats to Tickle your Tastebuds!
We were very excited to welcome Darren from Roots to Food into school, to deliver workshops for both KS1 and KS2 and even after school for a group of our parents!
KS2 were challenged to collaborate in two groups to make a healthy meals from recipes. Mr Dickinson headed up the Orange Team and Mrs Sharp headed the Green Team. They were very competitive as you can imagine!
The children learnt about the different food groups and the portion sizes of these that should be on their plates for a meal. The children taste-tested the final dishes to agree the final winner! Well done to the Orange Team for their delicious Pan Fried Chicken in a tomato pesto sauce with steamed pasta and wilted greens!
KS1 took part in a Fitness and Food Workshop too and focused on a range of fruits and how to ensure diets are balanced.
Parents joined in the fun after school and the smell of the Cajun Meatballs they watched being prepared was out of this world! The school was filled with an amazing aroma and made everyone hungry. Parents were very keen to have the recipe to try at home too. What a wonderful day! Thank you, Darren.
