Juniors Love ‘Fun With Food’ Club

Posted: 13th November 2012 | Category: Years 1 & 2

The Junior Department is always trying to find innovative ideas for their afternoon clubs and this term they have introduced ‘Fun with Food’ which is proving to be tremendously popular. 

Under the guidance of Sue Reis and Marianna Bakewell, a group of 10 children meet on Wednesday afternoons between 3.30 and 4.15pm, bringing with them an apron, a hair tie (for the girls), clean hands and, of course, an enquiring palate and a hearty appetite! The children take part in the food preparation process and are all encouraged to try everything on offer. 

So far their ‘Fun With Food’ taste experiences have ranged from fruit kebabs with two dipping sauces (chocolate and fruits of the forest), marshmallow crispy cakes to freshly extracted juices (carrot, apple & ginger and kiwi, apple & pear). 

The club is open to children in Years 1 and Year 2 and there has been a great demand for places.  Sue and Marianna are both passionately committed to giving the children fun and tasty experiences with food and so have introduced a half-termly rota system which will enable all children who want to participate the opportunity to do so.   

The popularity of the club is best encapsulated by this short conversation between mother and child on waking up on a Monday morning recently:

Child: Oh goody, only two sleeps to go!

Mum: Two sleeps to what, Darling?

Child: Food Club, of course!
