Another fantastic Visit from 'Roots to Food'

Posted: 25 May 23 15:05
Can't believe how quickly the year came round for our Roots to Food visit. Our current year 2 children were so excited to see Darren. They had remembered so much from the previous year's experience. Our Year 1 children were overjoyed with the cooking session and I have to say there were clean plates all round after the tasting. Darren runs the session effectively and safely. The children feel like real chefs! We're even putting the recipe 'Pesto Chicken pasta' on the menu for lunchtime. Booked in for next year already and we can't wait!

High Levels of Engagement

Posted: 23 Apr 23 15:42
It was one of the best workshops I’ve seen! Excellent use of vocab for young children reminding them each time of the key words, recapping and explicitly using them in context as much as possible. Superbly organised which meant it was pacey, everyone got to have a go at everything and children stayed focused. It was extremely well planned, by the adults trying the food first it built anticipation to ensure the children were excited to try the food and this helped those who were reluctant. Darren had high expectations for listening and attention which ensured high levels of engagement. Each task was modelled practically with lots of information around safety in a child friendly way.

A big thank you for all your hard work during your visit in school. The children really enjoyed the experience and the teachers have been singing your praises. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently, and all teaching objectives were covered and that is a great reflection on you and your team. Please can we book you again for next year?

Food and Nutrition Education - Year 6 Gala Dinner

I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to Darren and TCS for an amazing day and evening yesterday! The children had a brilliant day learning how to prepare for a 3 course meal from start to finish in a restaurant scenario – they were truly incredible. A lovely evening was had by all! Darren you were phenomenal as always! We have no idea how on earth you organise cooking a 3 course meal with Y6 and our very limited facilities! You are fantastic with the children teaching them in groups throughout the day preparing the food and directing them in the evening with their roles.

The workshop was amazing, and Darren, as always, was fantastic. We as a school really value the opportunity provided to the children to learn about the food they were using, the skills needed to prepare the food and then to cook and produce such a fantastic meal – brilliant! All pupils were really excited about the workshop and were smiling from start to finish. They really felt proud that they were able to use the equipment provided and actually make the dish themselves and with such ease. Many of them are already wanting to make it again at home. All of the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed the day, the food was delicious and everyone involved was invested in it. We can’t wait to have Roots to Food back again next year!
