ROOTS TO FOOD

Today we had a visit from Darren from Roots to Food; he spent the morning with all of KS2 teaching us about healthy eating followed by a live cooking challenge. Two teams had to create a recipe and then make the dish in just 15 minutes! We had a representative from Year 4 in each team; super well done to George F and Georgia O'N!

What a fantastic way of learning all about food and the end results were very tasty!
We will put the recipes created today on the school website for you to have a go at at home!

Have a look at the nhs website for more details and ideas of how to keep healthy.
