Wow, what an incredible day! The children thoroughly loved every minute of the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution day challenge!
The day began with Mrs Merriman collecting the ingredients from Waitrose (who kindly donated some money to help us pay for the ingredients), she loaded her car and headed for school. At 8:00am the bread arrived! Over 200 freshly baked bread rolls!
At lunchtime Mrs Clifford and Eagles Year 5’s set to work preparing the ingredients and sharing it all out across the school. What a challenge that was! Then two volunteers from Waitrose arrived to give us a hand!
After lunch we were split in to 26 groups of mixed ages from across the whole school. Then the fun began! To quote Jamie Oliver, “Now we get Crazy!” and we certainly did; chopping, slicing, snapping and bashing (literally) the ingredients together until we had a Healthy Summer salad to fill our sandwiches with.
Now for the tasting, I am pleased to say every child in the school tried something new today; whether that be eating a new ingredient, making a new friend as they cooked with people they wouldn’t usually see or even just being part of the whole school experience!
Gastrells you were so well behaved and made the afternoon so worth it!
