St Mary’s and Morrisons have come together to offer our Early Years families the opportunity to become involved in a half term Food/Cooking project. We will be sending out a weekly recipe (every Wednesday) for you to try at home, then on alternative Wednesdays we will also be providing the ingredients kindly donated by Morrisons, who will also be delivering cookery demonstrations for the children, encouraging then to become chef’s of the future. The idea being to support home learning through family activities you can enjoy making and then eating.
Everyone who shares their weekly cooking experiences on Tapestry will receive a raffle ticket for a prize draw at the end of the project, when a family will win a food hamper to enjoy and the child the opportunity to become a chef for the day in Morrisons, creating pizzas or cup cakes in store! In school we will also be having a design the pizza competition, with the winning pizza being created by Morrisons for the class to enjoy!
Over the Christmas period St Mary’s and Morrisons will be hosting a design the cup cakes competition, with the winning design again being created by Morrisions for everyone to enjoy in the New Year.
What’s coming up?
How do you get involved?
All you need to do is simply send in your pictures of your home cooking and maybe a review of the chef’s work through tapestry, for every completed week you will receive a raffle ticket for the hamper draw and chef day experience. The recipes will be sent weekly via Tapestry, but will also be shared on the school website and facebook page.
If we are able to make this a success, Morrisons and St Mary’s hope to be able to continue the project across the whole school in the Spring, so we can all enjoy a little cooking fun!
