Year 5 Visit – Cooking and Nutrition Lesson

Mrs Ryan reports:

“On Thursday 28th June pupils from Year 5 at The Willows had the opportunity to spend the day at Wellington experiencing a day in the life of a Wellington pupil. As part of the day the group participated in a Cooking and Nutrition lesson. The lesson started with a brief introduction to Healthy Eating and the Eatwell Guide. Pupils were then given a practical demonstration of Greek Style Cous Cous before going off in groups to make their own. Using the bridge and claw cutting techniques that had been demonstrated as well as combing ingredients for a dressing and working on the presentation of a dish, each group of pupils made the dish with all of them taking some home for their families to enjoy.

All pupils worked extremely well and with the help of Wellington pupils, Elin Kelly and Michael Harrison, managed to get completed and leave the room clean and tidy within an hour.

Excellent work Year 5 – I hope to see you all again but next time as Wellington pupils.”
