Roots to Food

Published: 25th January 2024

It was wonderful to welcome Darren Tinkler from Roots to Food back this week. He worked with Years 2 to 5 creating meals from around the world. These experiences provide our children with the opportunity to learn about different food groups and their nutritional values, food hygiene and safety and learning the many skills involved in producing a restaurant worthy meal.  Darren is great at talking about the food industry to enthuse the children about potential careers.

Darren said ‘it was a pleasure to return to Thurlby and cook with Y2, Y3, Y4 and Y5. The children loved the food and demonstrated terrific cooking practices!’  Well done to all our children on a thoroughly successful day!
