Have your say

Children from Years 5 and 6 at Great Addington Primary School swapped lessons for the kitchen when they became chefs and waiters for the day.

The class of 22 children took part in a healthy eating initiative over two weeks.

It was part of their school topic – you are what you eat.

The youngsters prepared and served healthy meals to the rest of the school on consecutive Fridays, with two groups from the class taking it in turns to be chefs and waiters.

After ordering their own groceries online for the project, they prepared a meal of jacket potatoes or pasta bakes, followed by fruit jellies or fruit kebabs washed down with fresh juice or smoothies.

Teacher Kim Skelton said: “The other classes asked if we could have it every week.”
