We went to St Peters school to celebrate ‘Food revolution day’ and what a fantastic time we had!
We worked with a very enthusiastic class of 30 year 2 children, between the ages of 6 and 7 and the feedback we received from the children was amazing.
First Janet sat with the children and gave a presentation about healthy eating, the food groups and how seafood can be beneficial to the way their body works.
The children were engrossed by the presentation
The pupils then went and worked out which of the ingredients they would like to use in their recipe from the seafood and vegetables we brought for them.
Our budding chefs worked together to create ‘fishy masterpieces’
The kids loved getting involved and putting together their recipes. Some of the kids chose Salmon whilst others preferred prawns, they all made sure they topped up their bakes and pies with lots of scrummy vegetables!
Fishy quizzes and activities
Whilst we worked with a handful of children at a time, the other children took part in ‘fishy’ activities, quizzes and games and had a great time learning more about how fish are caught and the sustainable fishing methods used by the fishermen. We also answered questions about the different species of fish.
For some of the kids it’s the first time they have prepared their own meal so it was all very exciting!
We really enjoyed ourselves and were so please that the kids had an excellent time too. The following week we received a lovely envelope from the class teacher with a thank you letter from each of the children that attended. Here are some of the fantastic comments…
