Children get busy in the kitchen to create some healthy dishes

Pupils at Shute Primary School got busy in the kitchen last week when they took part in their own version of MasterChef.

The cookery challenge was part of their science week activities, focussing on healthy eating.

The children decided on their menus with the youngest making ‘mocktails’, years one and two the starters, years three and four desserts and the oldest making the main course.

Before the event the older children were taken by coach to Miller’s Farmshop and Tesco to buy all of the ingredients. Miller’s kindly donated the food.

Learning opportunities included comparing costs and considering ‘food miles’.

All the children and staff were involved in preparing the dishes before they were judged by Steven Lamb, of River Cottage, Kate Handley, from HALFF and Olivia Miller, of Miller’s Farmshop.
