St.Ethelwold’s Primary, Shotton has become a pilot school for Jamie Oliver`s latest project, a hands-on food education programme for school children across the UK, his aims is to enable primary schools to bring food knowledge and cooking skills to life.

The programme provides children with the tools they need to grow food from seed and prepare meals from scratch, learning all about food, what it is, where it comes, the relationship food has on health, and the skills needed to cook.

In the next few months the pupils will be planting seeds and growing some of their own fruit and vegetables in the school grounds.

Pupils recently learnt how to make Leek and Potato soup from scratch by learning about the ingredients, knife and equipment skills, and of course cooking skills.  

The school featured onJamie Oliver`s Kitchen Garden Facebook page earlier in January and on the Kitchen Garden Project website.

School spokesperson Sue Bonney said:

“We believe that by providing children with the knowledge they need to grow food from scratch and prepare meals, we will be equipping them with one of the most important life skills and help children make better food choices for themselves, while having fun”.
