Farley Junior school took part in the Food Revolution day, a campaign by Jamie Oliver, on Friday, May 16.
The Food Foundation UK and USA and The Good Foundation in Australia campaign celebrates the importance of cooking good food from scratch and raising awareness of how it impacts on health and happiness.
Pupils joined other schools across the world in the Jamie Oliver live cooking lesson, which was streamed to all participating schools worldwide by educational group, TES (Think, Educate, Share).
They learnt how to make a rainbow salad wrap with beetroot, carrots, white cabbage, pear, feta cheese and dressings.
Barbara Maycock, Class Teacher, Farley Junior School said: “The Food Revolution day was a fantastic success. The pupils at Farley Junior School joined in with thousands of other children across the world to cook with Jamie Oliver via a live video link.
“In addition to joining in with the cooking lesson, pupils also took part in Jamie’s Guinness World Record attempt to have the most number of participants in a cooking lesson in 24 hours. in different venues. All our evidence will now be submitted to the Guinness Book of Records.
“The children worked very hard throughout the event and produced delicious rainbow salad wraps. They were very excited to know that they were cooking with other children around the world.”
